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

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

User Review  - Sara Salem - Goodreads

Interesting book that analyzes the verses in the Qur'an that address sexuality. Although Ali comes to the conclusion that the Qur'an can only be re-interpreted to a certain point, she also reinterprets it based on Western epistemological tools. Read full review
