Qurʼan and woman : rereading the sacred text from a woman's perspective by Amina Wadud( )

39 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides an interpretive reading of the Qu'ran by a woman, reading which validates the female voice in the Qu'ran and brings it out of the shadows. Muslim progressives have long argued that it is not the religion but patriarchal interpretation and implementation of the Qu'ran that have kept women oppressed. The author breaks down specific texts and key words which have been used to limit women's public and private role, even to justify violence toward Muslim women, revealing that their original meaning and context defy such interpretations. Despite much Qu'ranic evidence about the significance of women, gender reform in Muslim society has been stubbornly resisted. This reading of the Qu'ran confirms women's equality and constitutes legitimate grounds for contesting the unequal treatment that women have experienced historically and continue to experience legally in Muslim communities. The author argues that the Qu'ran does not prescribe one timeless and unchanging social structure for men and women; she maintains that the Qu'ran holds greater possibilities for guiding human society to a more fulfilling and productive mutual collaboration between men and women than as yet attained by Muslims or non-Muslims
Inside the gender Jihad : women's reform in Islam by Amina Wadud( Book )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In her new book, Inside the Gender Jihad, Amina Wadud brings a wealth of experience from the trenches of the jihad to make a passionate argument for gender inclusiveness in the Muslim world. Knitting together scrupulous scholarship with lessons drawn from her own experiences as a woman, she explores the array of issues facing Muslim women today, including social status, education, sexuality, and leadership."--Jacket
Rights & wrongs : the story of women in Islam by Corine Huq( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries the Qu'ran has been interpreted by men to suppress women, but in fact when it was written it represented an enlightened approach to women. Renowned Muslim feminist scholars and journalists, including Asra Q. Nomani, Mona Eltahawy, Azadeh Moaveni, Dr. Amina Wadud, Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl and Asma Gull Hasan, detail how from early on very different understandings of the Qu'ran lead to vastly different translations, with enormous repercussions for women living in different Islamic societies around the world. The film alternates between the history of Mohammad and his women, and issues facing women in Islam today--from wearing of the veil, to praying in the mosque, and attitudes towards domestic violence and honor killings

Faithfully feminist : Jewish, Christian, & Muslim feminists on why we stay( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Why do you stay?' It is a common question women are asked in relation to their faith. These are not women who buy into Candace Cameron's biblically submissive theory; rather, these are women who claim a feminist identity, have membership in a particular religious tradition, and practice their faith in spite of gendered challenges. In Faithfully Feminist 15 Christian, 15 Jewish, and 15 Muslim women share their stories of struggle and faith. In a world where women's issues are political issues, women are judged for their positions in relation to their claimed identities. Feminists argue that you cannot be a "true" feminist if you are a practicing Christian, Muslim, or Jew. Likewise, religious practitioners claim that you cannot be a "true" Christian, Muslim, or Jew if you support feminist values. Nevertheless, women who practice these religious traditions and hold feminist values are not uncommon, and the question "Why do you stay?" is one that is frequently asked of them. Faithfully Feminist is the sharing of stories, encouraging other women, and acknowledging that being feminist doesn't mean giving up on your faith."--

7 editions published between 1900 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the Qur'an directly in order to derive an understanding of the concept of woman projected by the text. It specifically analyzes the verses which mention women and the context of those verses. These verses are then examined in light of certain key terms and concepts used in the Qur'an to discuss humankind in general.
