Title: Womans Identity and the Quran: A New Reading
Publisher: University Press of Florida
Book Condition: New
Book Type: Hardcover
Hardcover. 192 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.8in.An original study of the Quranic foundations of womens identity and agency, this book is a bold call to Muslim women and men to reread and reinterpret the Quran and to discover within its revelations an inherent affirmation of gender equality. Barazangi asserts that Muslim women have been generally excluded from full participation in Islamic society, and thus from full and equal Islamic identity, primarily because of patriarchal readings of the Quran and the entire range of early Quranic literature. Based on her study of the sacred text, she argues that Islamic higher learning is a basic human right, that women have equal authority to participate in the interpretation of Islamic primary sources, and that women will realize their just role in society and their potential as human beings only when they are involved in the interpretation of the Quran. Barazangi offers a curricular framework for self-teaching that could prepare Muslim women for an active role in citizenship and policymaking in a pluralistic society by affirming the self-identity of the Muslim woman as an autonomous spiritual and intellectual human being.
