Transnational Forms of Islamic Law
Transnational Forms of Islamic Law
This is a special moment for the Manchester Journal of Transnational Islamic Law & Practice as it presents its first special issue on a very timely and important topic: “Women and Constitutions in Muslim Contexts”. The significance of analysing modern constitutions at the intersections of gender, religion, and political ideology cannot be overemphasised. Indeed, women have played a significant role in the development of Islamic law and theology throughout history. This role is often overlooked in Muslim patriarchal societies due to inegalitarian interpretations of Islamic law and traditions. Indeed, women have featured in Islam’s primary and secondary sources, weaving a rich tapestry of life and roles.
