Are Muslim men allowed to interact with female students in a virtual classroom, and vice versa? Can Muslim women pursue a professional career which necessitates their interaction with men? Is it appropriate for a woman to serve her husband's guests? Do segregated wedding ceremonies comply with the Sharia? At times like these, one searches for a text that addresses these contemporary issues, based on the Qur'an and the Sunnah. Dr. Hatem al-Haj has taken a broad view of the subject, keeping in mind the opinions of both categories of scholars: the ones who have taken a stricter stance and the ones who are more flexible in their interpretation. This is a comprehensive and well-researched work, filled with practical advice, from which students and professionals, both male and female will benefit immensely.
