Perplexity of a Muslim Woman : Over Inheritance, Marriage, and Homosexuality (Hardcover) (Olfa Youssef)
about this item
Using the methodology of modern scholars in the fields of Arabic lexicography, linguistics, and psychoanalysis, Tunisian feminist scholar Olfa Youssef investigates the rulings about inheritance, marriage, and homosexuality in the Qur’anic text itself and compares them with the androcentric interpretations provided by male Muslim theologians and legal scholars from medieval times to the present, which today inform the body of the sharia law in many parts of the Muslim world.
