What are the Qur'an's teachings on marriage - both as an intimate human relationship and as the most basic social institution? How can we approach the verses on marriage from within the Qur'an's ethical worldview? What are the implications of an ethically-oriented reading of the Qur’an for Muslim gender norms and rights? In this webinar, Asma, Omaima, and Mulki will explore these questions. They propose a new methodology for reading the Qur’anic verses on marriage and its different aspects, shedding light on the neglected link between Qur’anic ethics and Islamic legal tradition. They will also reflect on the importance of Muslim women engaging with the Qur’an and contributing to the science of tafsir.
