Dr. Najib al-Kilani, a contemporary Egyptian writer and poet, is committed to Islamic principles and has applied all his art in the propagation of Islamic and ethical thoughts. Al-Kilani is considered a pioneer in contemporary Islamic literature as far as the frequency and variation of works are concerned. He has written over 80 books in the areas of novels, short stories, poetry, reviews, and medicine. Among them, his novels and short stories have taken effective steps to propagate ethical concepts in the world of Arabic stories. In some of his novels, al-Kilani either chooses issues related to women as the theme or focuses on women while talking about other characters. The research question is what status do women have in Najib's novels and what characteristics of theirs are attended by him? The study of Najib's novels shows that women have a very colorful role in numerous spheres including politics, defending one's hometown, society and family while preserving Islamic dignity. Najib has been largely successful in presenting an Islamic image of Muslim women. He has never sought to present a vulgar image of women, and wherever there were discussions of women's physical features, they were no more than the necessary amount, and, of course, all those features were placed in an aura of sanctity and chastity.
