This is the first and only published volume on the Virtous Women of Islam by princess Qadariyah Hussein, a daughter of Sultan Hussein Kamel (1853 – 1917), who ruled during the British protectorate over Egypt,  from 19 December 1914 to 9 October 1917, and a niece of Fuad I. The text is written in Ottoman.

With a fully support of her parents, Qadariyah received a high level education and authored several books during her lifetime.
