Editorial Reviews

Review

Brilliant, eloquent and insightful ... It is difficult to overstate the contribution of this book to our understanding of gender, marriage and slavery in Islam. --Yossef Rapoport, author of Marriage, Money, and Divorce in Medieval Islamic Society

[T]his work's analytical clarity, conceptual sophistication, and penetrating analysis of dense legal texts will make it the standard against which future works in Islam and gender are measured. -- Mohammad Fadel, Associate Professor of Law, University of Toronto

A remarkable research accomplishment. Ali leads us through three strands of early Islamic jurisprudence with careful attention to the nuances and details of the arguments. (Judith Tucker, author of Women, Family, and Gender in Islamic Law)
