Reading his works through a critical feminist lens, this book opens fertile spaces in which new and creative encounters with gender justice in Islam can take place. Drawing on the treasured works of Sufism, the author raises a number of questions about the nature of selfhood, subjectivity, spirituality, and society to contribute to the prospects of Islamic feminism as well as feminist ethics more broadly."@en
