In doing so, he has not only rendered a major service to scholarship but he has also In doing so, he has not only rendered a major service to scholarship but he has also distilled the kinds of life-worlds a variety of contemporary Muslim interpreters foster.
He is to be commended for this work that will no doubt spark robust debate. Adis Duderija does a fine job of exploring the tensions within and between different ideal types and their implications for Muslim women and, let's face it, for men as well.

Contemporary Muslim Male Reformist Thought and Gender Equality Affirmative Interpretations of Islam A number of recently published studies by reformist-minded Muslim scholars have both questioned the normative nature of and emphasized Contemporary Muslim Male Reformist Thought and Gender Equality Affirmative Interpretations of Islam A number of recently published studies by reformist-minded Muslim scholars have both questioned the normative nature of and emphasized the need to rethink some of the fundamental assumptions and interpretational models governing traditional Islamic legal theories and ethics.
As part of this process they have emphasized the need to develop novel Islamic hermeneutics. What is particularly interesting, if not intriguing, from the perspective of the author of this article is that the scholarship on gender equality affirmative interpretations of Islam is theorized by reformist-minded Muslim male scholars at historically unprecedented levels which is what this study seeks to highlight.
Mainstream Sunnism, Islamic Extremism and progressive Islam more. Progressive Islam Reawakening Authenticity more. In this article, I will draw upon my previous scholarship to provide an overview of the worldview underpinning progressive Islam, its approach to conceptualising and interpreting the Islamic tradition, its theology and its normative In this article, I will draw upon my previous scholarship to provide an overview of the worldview underpinning progressive Islam, its approach to conceptualising and interpreting the Islamic tradition, its theology and its normative imperatives.
In doing so, I wish to present a less well known but no less authentic understanding of Islam that will hopefully challenge what many non- Muslims and Muslims think about what Islam was, is or can ever be.
This article aims to explain the ideas and the significance of Dr. Bilal Philips, a prominent 'Salafi'preacher, a major proponent of Neo-Traditional Salafism, and how his writings and activities can aid us in understanding the dynamics Bilal Philips, a prominent 'Salafi'preacher, a major proponent of Neo-Traditional Salafism, and how his writings and activities can aid us in understanding the dynamics regarding the nature of Salafism in the West as a discursive tradition with deep roots in the Islamic intellectual history, as well as an element of global Salafi movements.
The article also discusses the internal factionalism and the contentedness of the category of Salafism among western Salafis by examining one critique levelled at Philips by his fellow Salafis residing in the West, with the view of not only understanding and situating the views of Philips more accurately but also to provide an avenue to understand the internal Salafi dynamics in the West in particular.
As such mainstream Sunnism has strong hermeneutical limits that do not allow it to be in a position to mount an interpretationally effective rebuttal of many beliefs and practices Salafi-jihadists resort to including those pertaining to apostasy, enslavement, and gender-related issues.
In this article, I discuss the tensions between patriarchal and non-patriarchal interpretations of the Islamic tradition and some of the factors which contribute to the engendering of both. In order to contextualize the main discussion in In order to contextualize the main discussion in the first part of the article, I outline the historical tensions between the study of religion and gender in general.
The question of whether the culturally organizing function of gender is to be inevitably linked to the formation and perpetuation of patriarchal religion in general, and Islam in particular, is explored, or whether religion, including the case of Islam, can be a source of non-patriarchal values and ethics. In the second part, I discuss some of the most prominent factors which contribute to patriarchal interpretations of the Islamic tradition by grouping them, from the perspective of the individual interpreter, into those which pertain to personal opinion regarding the nature of two genders, Sitz im Leben, and interpretational methodology manhaj.
In the context of non-patriarchal interpretations of the Islamic tradition, I discuss its main delineating features and show, by using the work of a contemporary reformist Iranian scholar, H. Eshkevari b. This article applies Alan Race's typology of Christian thought in relation to the salvation of non-Christians to that of the Islamic tradition and uses the exegesis of Muhammad Asad as an example. It argues that Asad's exegesis of the It argues that Asad's exegesis of the relevant qur'anic verses places him firmly into the pluralist camp as defined by Race.
Hospitality in Islam as Based on Cornille. In this article, the author outlines a number of mechanisms pertaining to Islamic scriptural hermeneutics that are affirmative of the very concept and goals of Islamic feminism. First, Duderija presents a brief outline of the concepts of First, Duderija presents a brief outline of the concepts of scriptural hermeneu-tics and Islamic feminism.
Next, he identifies and discusses the delineating features of Islamic feminist scriptural hermeneutics and how exactly they support the ideas underpinning Islamic feminist thought. Framing the discussion in this manner, the article aims to make a contribution to a wider acceptance and hence future viability of the very concept of Islamic feminism, especially among those who might be prejudiced against it on the basis of its employment of the word feminist.
This article critically examines certain custom 'urf based assumptions and theories regarding gender roles and norms in Sunni Islamic tradition and law. First the article considers how scholarship should conceptualize Islamic tradition First the article considers how scholarship should conceptualize Islamic tradition.
Next, the processes through which the concept of 'urf has entered into the Islamic tradition and Islamic law in particular are considered.
The 'urf based assumptions regarding the nature of gender roles and norms in neo -traditional Muslim thought are based on what I term a ''gender oppositionality'' thesis. I argue that the gender oppositionality thesis has strongly influenced the manner in which the Qur'an and Sunna have been interpreted with respect to gender issues and on the basis of which patriarchal traditional Islamic law and ethics have been constructed.
In particular, I highlight and problematize the conceptual link between women as ''fitna'' sources of chaos , male honor ird and sexual jealousy ghaira t in discourses in neo- traditional interpretations of the Islamic tradition. Finally, the article articulates how traditional Quran—Sunna hermeneutics failed to recognize the importance of ''comprehensive contextualization'' of the Quran—Sunna on the basis of which we can question the validity of gender-oppositionality based interpretations of the Qur'an and Sunna present in neo- traditional discourses that were incorporated into Islamic law through the concept of custom.

The first part of the article will describe the semantico-contextual changes in the meaning of the term Hadith during the period under examination. The second part will present a brief chronological analysis of the development of the canonical Hadith literature and the concept of an authentic Hadith during the first four generations of Muslims. The progress of development of Hadith literature will, in particular, be traced in relation to the development of the concept of an authentic Hadith, as defined by the classical Hadith sciences.
It is the aim of this article to examine several gender related practices considered religiously normative by the IS and deconstruct the religious justifications behind them. In the analysis I include the practices pertaining to the This article highlights the scholarly contribution of the Iranian-born Muslim scholar-activist Ziba Mir-Hosseini to the academic field of gender and Islam.
In the FIRST PART, Mir-Hosseini's thought is positioned within the larger processes of the shifting loci of authority and normativity in contemporary Islamic discourses, particularly with reference to the emergence of what will here be termed critical-progressive Muslim scholar-activists. There follows a brief justification as to why a study of Mir-Hosseini's thought in relation to gender and Islam warrants examination.
Mir-Hosseini's personal journey in the field of gender and Islam is then outlined and her major contributions to the field are noted.
This is followed by a discussion of the support Mir-Hosseini finds for her ideas in the hermeneutical theories employed by reformist male Muslim scholars, and then an examination of her views on the relationship between Islamic feminism discourses and neo- traditional expressions of Islam.
The final section discusses Mir Hosseini's s activism with special reference to her involvement with Musawah, the global movement for equality in Muslim family law based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Critical-progressive Muslim scholar-activists are reinterpreting the normative teachings of the Muslim worldview and developing a distinctive third-way approach. There are several key political and policy ramifications of this stream of thought, including a robust commitment to religious freedom, but within Islamic terms, not terms dictated by non-Muslim Westerners preoccupied with their own security interests.
