a marriage is considered illegitimate unless the father acknowledges him. (2) A child who is born after six months of marriage is considered legitimate unless the father disclaims him. (3) After the dissolution of the marriage, a child is considered legitimate if born within two years (in Hanafi law).” [1] Usage of Islamic Sources to Wrongly Interpret the Qur’anic Commandments To misguide the reader Esposito also uses some lines from Islamic sources to support his negative impressions against Islam: “The negative attitudes toward divorce in Islam are clearly reflected in the opinions of Hanafi jurists. As the Hedaya states, divorce is: "a dangerous and disapproved procedure as it dissolves marriage, an institution which involves many circumstances as well of a temporal as of a spiritual nature.”" [2] Relating Irrelevant Phenomenon to Islam Esposito also attached women-imposing practices to Qur’anic teachings which have no relation with actual Islamic thought fro example, he wrote: “In the Hanafi school, a husband's and wife's renunciation of Islam (apostasy) dissolves the marital tie, ipso facto, whether or not the marriage was consummated. This condition provides a possible opportunity for wives to dissolve their marriage.” [3] Conclusion As far as the oriental academic contribution is concerned the book “Women and Family Laws in Islam” can be placed into an A category book because the author criticizes the related Islamic teachings in a very mild and academic way while giving no space to the polemical or wild sort of a mode but as he actually tends to produce the book which represents the very Islamic values and teachings, the researcher regrets to mention that from this perspective, the book should be placed into F category because of the previously described aspects proves that book contains severe technical, and descriptive limitations which can misguide and distract the reader who read the book to learn or to know about women related family laws of Islam.
