See a Problem? We’d love your help. Jon Armajani examines the way these cutting-edge scholars have interpreted the Quran, Hadith, and Islamic history as they have constructed their visions for Islam in the modern world. Armajani vividly describes their perspectives on women and gender, veiling, Islamic revivalism, Islam and democracy, and Islamic mysticism. The volume also situates their ideas with respect to conservatively minded western Muslims and Islamic revivalists.

Dynamic Islam analyzes the lives and works of four of the most influential liberal diaspora Muslim intellectuals of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries-Fatima Mernissi, Leila Ahmed, Fazlur Rahman, and Mohammed Arkoun.

This book summarizes the work of four contemporary scholars of Islam: Fatima Mernissi (Morocco, born 1940), Leila Ahmed (Egypt-U. born 1940), Fazlur Rahman (India-Pakistan-US, 1919-1988), and Mohammed Arkoun (Algeria-France, born 1928). Each of these scholars was born and raised in a Muslim society, traveled to Europe or North America for advanced academic training, and became internationally prominent through his contributions to Western Islamic studies. Armajani's analysis situates these authors' approaches to Islam in their transnational biographies. From their Islamic heritage, Armajani argues, each author privileges a single ethical principle drawn from the Qur'an over all other Islamic sources, including the legal prescriptions and methods known as shari'a.

Dynamic Islam analyzes the lives and works of four of the most influential liberal diaspora Muslim intellectuals of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries-Fatima Mernissi, Leila Ahmed, Fazlur Rahman, and Mohammed Arkoun. These prolific scholars are among the first generation of Muslims writing in Western languages who have intentionally directed their works toward audiences in the West, as well as the Muslim world. Jon Armajani examines the way these cutting-edge scholars have interpreted the Quran, Hadith, and Islamic history as they have constructed their visions for Islam in the modern world. Armajani vividly describes their perspectives on women and gender, veiling, Islamic revivalism, Islam and democracy, and Islamic mysticism. The volume also situates their ideas with respect to conservatively minded western Muslims and Islamic revivalists.
