Book Launch of Urdu Translation of Hizb ut Tahrir’s “Social System of Islam”
“Social System of Islam” Describes the Relationship of Men and Women in Society from Correct Perspective
Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan has launched the Urdu translation of Hizb ut Tahrir’s book, Social System of Islam. This book describes the relationship of men and women in a society from its correct perspective and defines the roles of men and women for the progress of the society, obliged by Islam, derived only from the Quran and Sunnah.
The perception of many people, including the Muslims, of the social system in Islam has become confused and in need of clarification. Their understanding became far removed from the reality of Islam, due to their alienation from its thoughts and rules. They went to extremes, holding the view that a woman has the right to be in seclusion with a man, as and when she wished, or that she can go out with her “awrah” uncovered, wearing whatever she pleased. Whilst others went to the other extreme, taking the view that women did not have the right to engage in trade or meet with men under any circumstances. Due to these extreme positions there was a degeneration of morals and a stagnation in thinking. The result of all this was the break-up of the social aspect, unrest within the Muslim family, the prevalence of dissatisfaction and discontent amongst family members and numerous disputes and divisions between them.
Therefore, it becomes necessary that the Islamic social system be studied comprehensively and to understand the relationships and its details resulting from the meeting of men and women. This book Social System of Islam from Hizb ut Tahrir describes these relationships and its details in a simple manner, which is easy to understand. The Hizb has described these relations and their details solely according to the Quran and Sunnah and did not make human intellect the basis of discussion. In this book various issues and their solutions were discussed including: the relationship of men and women in a family life and their rights and obligations, the issue of veiling of face, the activities of women in society, marriage, divorce, polygyny, guardianship and custody of child as well as many more aspects.

With the permission of Allah (swt), the upcoming Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood will manage the relationships of men and women only on the basis of the Quran and Sunnah and will bring society out of the current two extremes and put it on the road which Islam asked us.
مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحاً مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنْثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَهُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ
“Whoever works righteousness, whether male or female, while he (or she) is a true believer verily, to him We will give a good life in this world, and We shall pay them certainly a reward in Hereafter in proportion to the best of what they used to do.” [An-Nahal: 97]
