THIS UNIQUE COLLECTION OF ANALYTICAL PAPERS contains the arguments supporting Musawah, the Global Movement for Equality and Justice in the Muslim Family. These resource materials look at why equality and justice are possible within an Islamic framework, and why they are necessary given the socio-economic realities of today’s Muslim societies.
The collection’s strength is that it brings together analysis from a remarkably broad range of disciplines to support rights-based reform of Muslim family laws and the protection of existing rights. These disciplines include: Qur’anic exegesis, fiqh or jurisprudence, socio-legal history and analysis, international human rights law, gender studies, political science, sociology and economics.
Although the contributions are from leading scholars and analysts in the field, the style is designed to be accessible to all who are concerned about the need for equality and justice in the Muslim family.
As a concise resource for the Musawah movement, the book also contains the Musawah Framework for Action, a collectivelydeveloped holistic approach that lays the foundation for the claim that family laws and practices can-and must-change to reflect equality and justice and the lived realities of Muslims today.
