Product Description


"Aysha Hidayatullah cogently narrates American Muslim women's forays into scriptural interpretation, analyzes and critiques their assumptions and methods, and proposes strategies for moving past the aporias generated by existing exegetical approaches. Combining historical explication, lucid analysis, and theologically constructive critique, Feminist Edges of the Qur'an is a landmark contribution to scholarship and a must-read for anyone interested in gender, authority, and Islam." --Kecia Ali, author of Sexual Ethics and Islam

I found the book to be a very helpful overview and consideration of Islamic feminist writings. The author is bold and considerate in her approach. The only shortcoming for me lay in the final section where she expands on her own thesis - the chapters seem somewhat condensed. The work might have benefited, I think, if more space was devoted to the argument to acknowledge and recognize Quranic references to gender differences - and being able to move forward despite such an acknowledgement. It would have been interesting to hear some of the possibilities/hypotheses the author has in mind regarding this way forward. A more detailed explanation of the relevance of Ibn ArabI's rhetoric might also have been illuminating.
