Sardar, Ziauddin & Yassin-Kassab, Robin (dir.), Dossier “Men in Islam”, Critical Muslim, n°8, 2013, 240p.

A great deal has been said and written about ‘women in Islam’ — from how they should behave and dress to their ‘duties’ and position in society. Muslim men, on the other hand, have escaped all scrutiny. With contributions from leading Muslim scholars and writers both male and female, this issue of Critical Muslim balances the equation.
• Ziauddin Sardar confesses his shortcomings as a Muslim man
• Merryl Wyn Davies asks what exactly is the problem with men
• Abdennur Prado grapples with Muslim masculinities
• Ziba Mir-Hosseini tries to get out of the dead-end of male superiority justified by the Sharia
• Kecia Ali is exasperated with the omnipresent male scholar
• Asma Afsaruddin argues that the history of Islam includes people who were not men
• Mohamed Saleck Val is impressed by traditional female commentators on the Qur’an
• Shamim Miah is disgusted by Pakistani men who groom vulnerable teenage girls
• Tanjil Rashid argues that Islamists like Sayyid Qutb are complex men
• Stefano Bigliardi suggests that men who follow the flat-earth ideology of Turkish creationist Haroon Yahya need psychotherapy
• Leyla Jagiella relates her painful experiences as a woman who was a man
• Jenny Taylor thinks it’s time both men and women were a bit more chaste.
