This book is the outcome of thorough studies of sister Jameelah Jones and Sheikh Bilal Philips, both of whom reverted to Islam in 1971 an 1972 respectively. Their western background facilitated a deep understanding of the subject. They have dealt with it strictly in the light of Qur’an and Sunnah and have described important characteristics of marriage in Islam. They have provided a straight forward reply of why Islam allows four wives. The book has been well received by the readership and is key in dispelling the malignant propoganda against Islam.
