Using philosophical analysis, this book explores the construction of gender in Muslim societies and its implication to the constitution of the self. The root of the existing discourse of the hierarchical principle is examined as is the extent to which the process of human reproduction, especially the role of women in conception, contributes to an anti-egalitarian theory of gender. The author analyzes the theological, cultural and political apparatus of the masculine conception of femininity and seeks to unfold the process of the alienation of the self from a woman’s sense of individuality, agency, and autonomy. Incorporating traditional Islamic sources, Western feminist texts and Christian texts, Gender and Self in Islam seeks to restructure the contradictory claims of gender hierarchy and egalitarianism and elaborate an alternative set of interpretations that is friendly and inclusive of women.

Commencing in colonial times, this book explores and interprets the historical processes through which the perception of the Muslim individual and the community of Islam has been reconfigured over time. Self and Sovereignty examines the relationship between Islam and nationalism and the individual, regional, class and cultural differences that have shaped the discourse and politics of Muslim identity. As well as fascinating discussion of political and religious movements, culture and art, this book includes analysis of: * press, poetry and politics in late nineteenth century India * the politics of language and identity - Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi * Muslim identity, cultural differnce and nationalism * the Punjab and the politics of Union and Disunion * the creation of Pakistan Covering a period of immense upheaval and sometimes devastating violence, this work is an important and enlightening insight into the history of Muslims in South Asia.

"Pendant longtemps, tout au moins jusqu'à l'âge de huit ou neuf ans, j'ai vécu le fait d'être musulman le vendredi et dans les vignes de mon grand-père le samedi sans trop souffrir de la contradiction. Mais, régulièrement, mon esprit se trouvait ramené à la même énigme : pourquoi ces univers ne communiquent-ils pas entre eux, alors qu'ils sont côte à côte ? Mon grand-père auvergnat et athée ne parlait jamais de l'islam. Je voyais les musulmans rester beaucoup entre eux. Et moi au milieu. Un électron libre. Tantôt chez les uns, tantôt chez les autres. Était-ce là le sens de ma vie, de faire enfin communiquer ces deux mers qui se touchent sans mêler leurs eaux, cet Orient et cet Occident qui se côtoient sans vouloir se reconnaître ? Le petit garçon que j'étais a dû se figurer que c'était là sa responsabilité à venir, effectivement. Une responsabilité née de l'amour et de la peine : amour de mon grand-père athée, amour de ma mère musulmane, peine de voir que l'islam était entre eux comme un mur. J'aurais tout donné alors pour détruire ce mur."

Islam is a way of life. Yes it is a religion but not one that can be put away only to be dusted off at the end of the week and paraded around a centre of worship. Islam permeates everything a believer does; it influences his behaviour on both conscious and unconscious levels. For those looking at Islam from the outside it might appear to be a very strict religion, as it is an ongoing exercise in self-control, and a daily fight against temptation, but the reality is that Islam is not strict. In order to understand this further the concept of free will in Islam must be explained. Dictionary.com defines free will as a free and independent choice. The British dictionary goes a little further and says free will is the apparent human ability to make choices that are not externally determined. Free will is our ability to choose the way we respond to outside stimuli, we can choose to act righteously or wrongfully. In other words we are responsible for our own actions. God created human beings with free will. We have the ability to choose between believing and not believing, between obeying God and disobeying Him, thus we have the ability to choose between reward and punishment. Every day we are faced with choices and challenges and every believer knows that this life is full of tests. These tests are designed by God not to ‘trip us up’, as some might suggest, but to give us more chances to choose the right thing. We can choose to use our voices to praise God or we can use them to swear and lie; we can choose to walk to a mosque or an Islamic centre or we can choose to walk instead to places of vice. There is nothing to stop people making the wrong choice except a little thing called self-control.
