Description :

Qawwamoon : Protectors and Maintainers
is a book for us all: to raise awareness in the male population of their divinely prescribed role as protectors and maintainers of women; to highlight the devastating impact of domestic abuse for members of the public; to inform community leaders and professionals as to how best to effectively help both the oppressor and the oppressed; and, last but not least, it aims to provide a voice for victims of domestic abuse, emotional support and practical advice for the road to recovery.

             ''Men are the Qawwamoon [Protectors and Maintainers]
              of women ...
''  [al-Qur'an 4 : 34].

Domestic abuse has sadly reached alarming levels and threatens to destroy the very fabric of society. As part of that society, it is our collective and individual responsibility to educate ourselves about the causes and effects of this epidemic so that we can all work to prevent it happening while having the understanding to support those that are directly affected.
