9781780743813: Sexual Ethics and Islam: Feminist Reflections on Qur'an, Hadith and Jurisprudence

Whether exploring the thorny issues of wives' sexual duties, divorce, homosexuality, or sex outside marriage, discussions of sexual ethics and Islam often spark heated conflict rather than reasoned argument. In this updated and expanded edition of her ground-breaking work, feminist Muslim scholar Dr Kecia Ali asks how one can determine what makes sex lawful and ethical in the sight of God. 

Drawing on both revealed and interpretative Muslim texts, Ali critiques medieval and contemporary commentators alike to produce a balanced and comprehensive study of a subject both sensitive and urgent, making this an invaluable resource for students, scholars, and interested readers.

About the Author:

Dr. Kecia Ali is Associate Professor of Religion at Boston University. Her other books include The Lives of Muhammad, Marriage and Slavery in Early Islam, and Imam Shafi'i: Scholar and Saint.

Review:

'It's great to have a new edition of this foundational work in Muslim feminism that, ten years down the road, widens and deepens the important questions raised by the first edition.'
Dr. Judith Plaskow, Professor Emerita of Religious Studies at Manhattan College
