Abstract

On 15 May 2014, IAIS Malaysia organised a seminar on Women’s Leadership in Islam in collaboration with Pertubuhan IKRAM Malaysia. The speakers were Professor Mohammad Hashim Kamali, CEO of IAIS Malaysia; Che Asmah Ibrahim, Deputy Chairman of the Women Committee, IKRAM; and Associate Professor Dr Raihanah Abdullah, associate professor at the Department of Shariah and Law, Academy of Islamic Studies, University of Malaya.

The first speaker, Professor Kamali defined leadership in a broad sense to include intellectual leadership, a domain which even historically has witnessed significant contributions by women, such as in the sciences of hadith. The renowned hadith scholar, Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani enlisted over 170 female hadith scholars, one of whom even mastered a number of other disciplines. A study by Jalal al-Din Suyuti reveals that no woman has been involved in hadith forgery.
