Muslim Women and Gender Justice Concepts, Sources, and Histories

Muslim Women and Gender Justice Concepts, Sources, and Histories

Author: Dina El Omari Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/09/2019

This volume brings together the work of a group of Islamic studies scholars from across the globe. They discuss how past and present Muslim women have participated in the struggle for gender justice in Muslim communities and around the world. The essays demonstrate a diversity of methodological approaches, religious and secular sources, and theoretical frameworks for understanding Muslim negotiations of gender norms and practices. Part I (Concepts) puts into conversation women scholars who define Muslima theology and Islamic feminism vis-a-vis secular notions of gender diversity and discuss the deployment of the oppression of Muslim women as a hegemonic imperialist strategy. The chapters in Part II (Sources) engage with the Qur'an, hadith, and sunna as religious sources to be examined and reinterpreted in the quest for gender justice as God's will and the example of the Prophet Muhammad. In Part III (Histories), contributors search for Muslim women's agency as scholars, thinkers, and activists from the early period of Islam to the present - from Southeast Asia to North America. Representing a transnational and cross-generational conversation, this work will be a key resource to students and scholars interested in the history of Islamic feminism, Muslim women, gender justice, and Islam.

UFO sulla Bibbia

UFO sulla Bibbia

Author: Marco Enrico de Graya Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/09/2019

Gli Dei e gli Angeli narrati nella Bibbia erano veramente extraterrestri o erano terresti sopravvissuti ad un cataclisma che aveva spazzato via una civilta precedente? Quelli descritti erano veramente avvenimenti riconducibili ad attivita tecnologicamente avanzate? Il testo riporta tutti questi fenomeni indicati nella Bibbia (Antico Testamento), ma anche quelli dei Vangeli, dei Vangeli apocrifi, del Corano, dello storico Giuseppe Flavio, con una panoramica sui tre libri di Enoch. La nube che accompagna Mose nel deserto, gli incontri di Ezechiele ed Elia, ma anche il volo in cielo di Enoch e quello di Maometto, la nube sulla grotta alla nascita di Gesu, l'incontro di Rabbi Yosseph con un essere di un altro mondo dopo la distruzione di Sodoma, i 7 mondi abitati secondo la Kabbalah, il volo sulle nubi degli Apostoli e molto altro ancora. Scopriremo che il Buraq di Maometto era noto in India e che molto probabilmente l'Arca dell'alleanza e l'Efod non erano oggetti tecnologici.
