  • Ibn 'Arabiby William C. Chittick

    Oneworld Publications 2012; US$ 19.99

    The importance of Muhyi al-Din Ibn al-Arabi (1165-1240) for Islamic mysticism lies in the fact that he was a speculative thinker of the highest order, albeit diffuse and difficult to understand. His central doctrine is the unity of all existence. In this text, William Chittick explores how, through the work of Ibn Al-Arabi, Sufism moves away from... more...

    In 1928, a young Lebanese woman, Nazira Zeineddine al-Halabi, wrote a book called "Unveiling and Veiling", an indictment of patriarchal oppression in which she boldly stated that the veil was un-Islamic, directly challenging the teachings of “wiser" male scholars.

  • Homosexuality in Islamby Scott Siraj al-Haqq Kugle

    Oneworld Publications 2010; US$ 29.95

    Homosexuality is anathema to Islam – or so the majority of both believers and non-believers suppose. Throughout the Muslim world, it is met with hostility, where state punishments range from hefty fines to the death penalty. Likewise, numerous scholars and commentators maintain that the Qur?an and Hadith rule unambiguously against same-sex relations.... more...

    Oneworld Publications 2012; US$ 40.00

    One of greatest Persian writers of both classical prose and poetry, Sa'di was revered in his time as a man of great wisdom and passion. Filled with extracts of the poet's melodious and insightful writing, and critical analysis thereof, this revealing biography examines why he was so idolized until the 1950s, and why since then he has fallen into relative... more...
