GIS 503 Women And Gender In Islam
Faculty: Dr. Abdus-Salaam Musa (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
So what is the truth? Does Islam oppress women? Are you yourself unsure? After this course, you will be able to speak with some authority on the matter. In this course, we will not only address this specific question, but explore, more broadly, the role of gender as it is laid out in the primary sources of Islamic teachings – the Qur’an and the authentic hadiths. This course is equally for women who may feel discriminated against, and for men, particularly those who may assume a built-in sense of “superiority” by virtue of their gender.
