Le monde musulman condamnerait-il la femme au silence ? Contre les préjugés de l'Occident mais aussi les déviations des intégristes, ce livre permet de redécouvrir le véritable statut de la femme dans l'islam. Islamologue internationalement reconnue, Annemarie Schimmel nous présente ici l'autre visage de la civilisation musulmane en se faisant la biographe de grandes figures féminines, comme Fatima, la plus jeune fille du Prophète, Shawana, l'ascète aux pleurs intarissables ou encore Laïla, aimée à la folie par Madjnun. Qu'elle porte un regard nouveau sur le Coran, les traités philosophiques et poétiques, ou qu'elle ressuscite les traditions soufies, Annemarie Schimmel montre comment la femme peut être pleinement la partenaire de l'homme et de Dieu. Car les femmes de l'islam, mères, sœurs ou compagnes, auront aussi été d'authentiques mystiques, affirmant la spécificité de l'élément féminin, si nécessaire au monde d'aujourd'hui.

Deals with the lives of the prophets as they are given in the Holy Qur'an. The chief object is to remove the prevailing misconception that the Holy Qur'an takes its narratives from the Bible or Jewish and Christian traditions. For this purpose narratives in the Holy Qur'an are contrasted with their versions in the Bible or Jewish and Christian traditions. It will be found that wherever previous record has cast a slur on the character of a prophet, the Holy Qur'an has invariably vindicated it. The Holy Book has further brought out facts which enhance the moral value of these narratives and removed defects and contradictions which have found way into sacred history due to manipulation of facts or carelessness in recording them. This affords the clearest evidence that Divine Inspiration and not any previous record or tradition was the source from which the Prophet obtained information. By doing away with the profanity of sacred history, the Holy Qur'an has rendered immense service to the Bible itself. This is in accordance with its claim.

Tariq Ramadan is very much a public figure, named one of Time magazine's most important innovators of the twenty-first century. He is among the leading Islamic thinkers in the West, with a large following around the world. But he has also been a lightning rod for controversy. Indeed, in 2004, Ramadan was prevented from entering the U.S. by the Bush administration and despite two appeals, supported by organizations like the American Academy of Religion and the ACLU, he was barred from the country until spring of 2010, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally lifted the ban. In What I Believe, Ramadan attempts to set the record straight, laying out the basic ideas he stands for in clear and accessible prose. He describes the book as a work of clarification, directed at ordinary citizens, politicians, journalists, and others who are curious (or skeptical) about his positions. Aware that that he is dealing with emotional issues, Ramadan tries to get past the barriers of prejudice and misunderstanding to speak directly, from the heart, to his Muslim and non-Muslim readers alike. In particular, he calls on Western Muslims to escape the mental, social, cultural, and religious ghettos they have created for themselves and become full partners in the democratic societies in which they live. At the same time, he calls for the rest of us to recognize our Muslim neighbors as citizens with rights and responsibilities the same as ours. His vision is of a future in which a shared and confident pluralism becomes a reality at last.

La tradition musulmane fait dire à Dieu: "J'étais un Trésor caché, j'ai voulu être connu ; c'est pourquoi j'ai créé les créatures afin qu'elles me connaissent." Théologiens, mystiques ou philosophes, les penseurs de l'Islam ont longuement médité cette parole, qui met la quête de la connaissance au centre de la création. Cette quête, menant de la connaissance de soi à la connaissance de Dieu, est l'objet des textes de la présente anthologie. Prenant à rebours les clichés qui trop souvent réduisent l'islam à un légalisme rigide et la spiritualité musulmane au soufisme, les extraits choisis, dont certains sont traduits pour la première fois en français, mettent en valeur la diversité d'inspiration de leurs auteurs. Car la spiritualité musulmane a puisé pendant des siècles son dynamisme et son originalité dans la multiplicité de ses sources et de ses démarches, dans le dialogue instauré entre les penseurs, comme dans les controverses que la tradition philosophique et l'héritage grec ont rendu possibles. C'est ce dialogue, cette fluidité essentielle à la vie de l'esprit dont ce livre se propose de rendre compte.

This volume provides an objective analysis of current trends and developments in the beliefs and practices of Sufis in Britain. Sufism is a dynamic and substantial presence within British Muslim communities and is influencing both religious and political discourses concerning the formation of Islam in Britain. In the 21st century Sufis have re-positioned themselves to represent the views of a 'Traditional Islam', a non-violent 'other Islam', able to combat the discourses of radical movements. Major transformations have taken place in Sufism that illuminate debates over authenticity, legitimacy, and authority within Islam, and religion more generally. Through examining the theory and history involved, as well as a series of case studies, Sufism in Britain charts the processes of change and offers a significant contribution to the political and religious re-organisation of the Muslim presence in Britain, and the West.

In a series of essays devoted to key terms and ideas in Islam, Bravmann argues on the basis of pre-Islamic and early Islamic texts for an Arabian background to the rise of the religion. In pursuing a through philological examination of the evidence, Bravmann finds core values and ideas of Islam deeply embedded in ancient Arab linguistic expression. His work continues to provide a critical element in the debates about the emergence of Islam and cannot be ignored by anyone trying to assess the complex historiographical problems that surround the issue.

The second part examines the divisions of the Islamic community with their distinctive pieties and emphases: Sunnism and Shi’ism and female spirituality. Part III is devoted to Sufism – its nature and origin, its early development, its various spiritual practices and its science of the soul.

The second largest branch of Islam, with between 130 and 190 million adherents across the globe, Shi'i Islam is becoming an increasingly significant force in contemporary politics, especially in the Middle East. This makes an informed understanding of its fundamental spiritual beliefs and practices both necessary and timely._x000D_ _x000D_ Mohammad Ali Amir-Moezzi is one of the most distinguished scholars of Shi'i history and theology, and in this volume he offers a wide-ranging and engaging survey of the core texts of Shi'i Islam. Examining in turn the origins and later developments of Shi'i spirituality, the author reveals the profoundly esoteric nature of the beliefs which accrued to the figures of the early Imams, and which became associated with their interaction between the material and spiritual worlds. Many of these beliefs have remained much misunderstood even within the wider Muslim world. Furthermore, Western scholarship has tended to follow the lead of the earlier orientalists and critics, viewing Shi'i teachings as marginal._x000D_ _x000D_ In this study the author shows, by contrast, how central and creative the very nature of spirituality was to the development of Shi'i Islam, as well as to classical Muslim civilisation as a whole. In this comprehensive treatment, the esoteric nature of Shi'i spirituality emerges as an essential phenomenon for understanding Shi'i Islam._x000D_
