Summary

EXPANDED AND REVISED TENTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

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 groundbreaking, 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.

This updated Tenth Anniversary Edition takes into account how the world has changed in the decade since the first edition, including the way the Internet has changed how we debate these issues, and the extreme versions of Islam presented by the likes of Boko Haram and Islamic State.

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.
