Amina Wadud and feminist interpretation of surah 4:34
Average rating 4. She has spent years studying the Qur'an not only as an academic scholar, but from a deeply personal place as a woman and a member of the Islamic faith. Written from a very 'progressive' viewpoint; doesn't reflect the majority of Muslim women's beliefs.

Those principles have to be re-examined to come to an understanding of the revelation that is appropriate for modern times. I intend to integrate her position in a general Islamic feminist discourse and its opinion concerning quranic exegesis. Following that I want to outline her methodological approach, focusing on four points: the reader as subject, the Arabic language as barrier to interpretation, historical contextualization and gender as interpretive category. This event caused an instant uproar within the global Islamic community and showed how conservative and unwilling to deal with change the majority of the Muslim public is.

Wadud believes the verses that outline these principles are the ones that Allah meant to act as universal. Dietrich. Related Papers.
