Sexual Ethics and Islam: Feminist Reflections on Qur'an, Hadith and Jurisprudence
Oneworld Publications, 2006 M07 6 - 192 pages
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 ground-breaking, lucid, and carefully constructed 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.

This book is excellent! This woman is a brilliant scholar: quotes from a variety of texts, presents both (sometimes multiple) sides of an argument, and honestly reveals her own biases. I can't recommend this book strongly enough!!! Read full review
