"Bahishti Zewar" (Heavenly Ornaments), by Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah E Alaih), English, is a comprehensive handbook of fiqh (jurisprudence), especially for the "Do's & Don'ts" education of girls and women. The volume describes the Five Pillars of Islam and also highlights more obscure principles. For years it has remained a favorite with the people of the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent.
