This Florida Deen Intensive session looks at the Islamic agenda of gender. Abdal Hakim Murad answers the questions: Who is a man and who is a woman? Does God have a gender? And what is real gender equality? This intelligent analysis of a somewhat controversial topic seeks to dispel many misplaced notions held by many non-Muslims, as well as many Muslims themselves. Learn about the influence of female scholars in classical Islam, the Islamic models of female perfection, and the Muslim response to secular feminism. The speaker then engages the audience by answering their concerns directly such as: women in the masjid, women leaving the home, female reinterpretation of the Qur’an, gender segregation, Islamist feminism, and the perception that Paradise is a male’s paradise.
