More About the Author

Kecia Ali is an Associate Professor of Religion at Boston University. She writes on early Islamic law, women, ethics, and biography. Her books include Sexual Ethics and Islam (2006), Marriage and Slavery in Early Islam (2010), and Imam Shafi'i: Scholar and Saint (2011).

Her newest book, The Lives of Muhammad (2014), argues that despite the common perception that Muslims cling to archaic ideas about their prophet, in fact many ideas about Muhammad that contemporary Muslims hold developed over the last two centuries in tandem and in tension with Western Christian writers' views of him. Muslim and non-Muslim accounts of his life have intersected and intertwined in crucial ways and all have been affected by new ideas about marriage, sexuality, and human achievement.

She also co-edited the revised edition of A Guide for Women in Religion (2014), which provides practical guidance for careers in religious studies and theology. She is currently at work on a book about women and Islam for the classroom.

Ali is active in the American Academy of Religion and serves as president of the Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics. From time to time, she blogs at feminismandreligion.com, cognoscenti.wbur.org, and huffingtonpost.com.
