A jihad for love : Islam like you've never seen it( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Der Film setzt sich mit der Situation homosexueller Menschen in islamischen Ländern auseinander, denen bei strenger Auslegung des Korans in ihren Heimatländern drastische Strafen bis zur Steinigung drohen. Er wirbt für Toleranz und sucht nach Wegen, um Religion und das Recht auf die eigene Sexualität in Einklang zu bringen. Der aufrichtige Erstlingsfilm entstand in fünfjähriger Recherchearbeit; er befragt gläubige homosexuelle Moslems nach ihren Erfahrungen und danach, wie sie mit der Unterdrückung ihrer sexuellen Bedürfnisse leben.

Islam and homosexuality by Samar Habib( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The place of sexual and gender minorities in the contemporary Islamic world is the subject of fascinating new directions in research and scholarly thought. Islam and Homosexuality gathers together 20 experts exploring these issues to provide an expansive look at the treatment of same-sex interactions in Muslim cultures today. Islam and Homosexuality offers one volume on the specific experiences of gay Muslims today and a second volume viewing the issue from a global perspective. Essays explore the lives of LGBTIQ persons in both Islamic nations and Muslim communities in non-Islamic countries. Additional writings explore the roots of homophobia in the theology of Islam, the various judgments against homosexuality in the different schools of Islamic law, and the potential scriptural basis for including LGBTIQ persons in the Muslim community. No other resource on the relationship between LGBTIQ persons and the world's largest religion covers the topic with anything approaching this work's range or depth
