Islam is experiencing a crisis of credibility and authority that stems directly from the nature of Islam itself. This makes it difficult to come up with solutions of any sort because few Muslims will be willing to alter the structure of their religion. Today's crisis grows in part of the structure of Islam itself-a faith without denominations, hierarchies, and centralized institutions. The absence of such structures has been a source of strength that has permitted the faith to adapt to local conditions and win converts around the world. But it is also a weakness that makes it difficult for Mus... View more info

Islamic Spirituality is based upon the assumption that what appears to us mystery revealed itself as being God. The Qur'an is this revelation. The Qur'an Instructs us in the foundational importance of awareness of God and the proper response to God. The Sunnah (lifestyle or practice) of Muhammad expresses and exemplifies this Qur'anic awareness of, and response to God within actual, historical phenomenal reality. This is the heart and foundation and raison d'etre of Islamic spirituality. Muhammad is considered to be a "walking Qur'an". Islamic spirituality fosters God-consciousness, ca... View more info

This book is here because of fifteen years of research. During this time, I was witness to women’s superiority, women doing better in every field. Women now control research and research outcomes. This has led to the destruction of old and dangerous myths about the biological inferiority of women espoused by men. Through this new research, women’s bodies and minds have in fact been proven superior. I want women and girls to continue on this trend of becoming scholars and progressive thinkers like Amina Wadud. Her authority over the Quran is not matched by anyone else. Upon reading her book... View more info
