Rereading the Qur’an: A muslim woman’s perspective


Manea, E (2011). Rereading the Qur’an: A muslim woman’s perspective. Journal of the Dutch-Flemish Levinas Society, 2011(XVI):21-29.

Abstract

‘It is the Qur’an that we have to deal with, if we are to succeed in paving the path for a humanistic Islam. Qur’an has been treated as synonyms to God. It is as if we dared to question the nature of Qur’an, we are questioning our faith in God, and at the same time we declare our rejection of Islam itself. Qur’an in this sense is the Church of Islam. Separating this church of Islam from state’s laws and jurisprudence is imperative; not only for the future of a humanistic Islam, but also for institut-ing legal gender equality.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
