What Islam Says About Domestic Violence: A Guide for Helping Muslim Families was written for victim advocates working at FAITH (Foundation for Appropriate and Immediate Temporary Help) in the field of domestic violence (DV).
FAITH realized that most Muslim women don’t know the rights that Allah SWT has blessed them with. DV survivors were following some cultural norms thinking that it was Islam. Therefore, suffering in silence.
FAITH approached the authors to write this book from the Islamic perspective so that the culture could be separated from the religion. FAITH thanks the authors for their expertise, diligence, hard work and commitment to writing this book. The grant funding for the first edition was awarded to FAITH Social Services by International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and the Center for Multicultural Human Services (CMHS). It was funded in part by the Department of Criminal Justice V-Stop grant to CMHS.
FAITH is grateful to the scholars who reviewed this book and gave their reflections and blessings. FAITH appreciates the work of editors on this book. FAITH recognizes Center for Islam in the Contemporary World (CICW) at Shenandoah University for making “What Islam Says About Domestic Violence: A guide for Helping Muslim Families” in a digital book.
This book can be downloaded free for educational purposes only and cannot be sold. May this knowledge bring light to all in this world Ameen.
