Qur'an and Woman - Amina Wadud - ebok () | Adlibris Bokhandel

Amina Waduds exegesis 4. She wants to show how the egalitarian quranic principles concerning women have been distorted through the history of exegesis. Those principles have to be re-examined to come to an understanding of the revelation that is appropriate for modern times. I intend to integrate her position in a general Islamic feminist discourse and its opinion concerning quranic exegesis. Following that I want to outline her methodological approach, focusing on four points: the reader as subject, the Arabic language as barrier to interpretation, historical contextualization and gender as interpretive category.

Book Review of: Qur'an and Woman by Amina Wadud-Muhsin

July 03, Fourteen centuries of Islamic thought have produced a legacy of interpretive readings of the Qu'ran written almost entirely by men. Now, with Qu'ran and Woman, Amina Wadud provides a first interpretive reading by a woman, a reading which validates the female voice in the Qu'ran and brings it out of the shadows.

These problems can be overcome, the whole "72 virgins" matter, and they are not written in stone. For example. However there is no consensus about explicit quranic passages or strong hadiths which prohibit women from doing so? This is by far my favourite book on Islamic feminism.
