  1. I wonder to myself if the reason I sometimes withdraw from people is because I am shy and introverted or just because I want to protect my heart from the deadening effects of their company.

    Thanks Bill for the article, the CS Monitor usually offers some of the best articles on Islam in the mainstream print media. If this fatwa council of women is to have any credibility it will need to be made up of women who are well-versed in the Islamic sciences, Quran, and Arabic.
