E ur'an compiled centuries ago this message is often lost In this book Asma Lamrabet demands a rereading of the ur'an by women that focuses on its spiritual and humanistic messages in order to alter the lived reality on the groundBy acknowledging the oppression of women to different degrees in social systems organized in the name of religion and also rejecting a perspective that seeks to promote Western values as the only means of liberating. Review for of the English translation of Asma Lamrabet s book Le Coran t les femmes une lecture de liberationI want to start this review of the English translation of Asma Lamrabet s book Le Coran Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society et les femmes une lecture de lib ration by putting my cards on the table First I know the author well and have a great deal of respect and affection for her as a scholar and a friend Second I have read the book in its original French version as I have read several others of Lamrabet sxcellent books Third my primary reason for buying the English translation of the book available at was to assess the uality of the translation before recommending it to English language readersI started reading the rather long introductory chapter 24 pages in the French version 19 in the English with both versions in hand paragraph by paragraph always starting with the French When I finished I re read the chapter in its ntirety in both French and English Afterwards I continued with the English translation but going back to the original French as neededThe translator Myriam Fran ois Cerrah has done a remarkable job translating a somewhat difficult book to capture and I applaud her fforts In my view the English version would have been much stronger had Ms Cerrah tried to convey the ssence of the text rather than seeming to be primarily concerned with the transmission of the meaning of just about very word resulting in the book appearing rather repetitive at times Black Heart, Red Ruby especially to the English languagear Having said that the English translation of this important book is not only worth reading but is a must read for Anglophones interested in the position of Women in Islam as portrayed by Islam s holiest book the ur anHerself a devout Muslim Dr Lamrabet is among the most knowledgeable contemporary Muslim scholars the majority of whom are men With remarkable skill and delicacy Dr Lamrabet discusses the status of women in Islam *Held A Hostage By Two Opposing But hostage by two opposing but xtreme perspectives rigid conservative Islamic the other western thnocentric islamophobic pointing out that despite

eually impaired vision thus rendering a meaningful dialogue between the two camps virtually impossibleRather than being satisfied with criticizing the West for its poor portrayal of Muslim women Dr Lamrabet in a radical departure from what she refers to as centuries old unchallenged parochial interpretations of the ur an interpretations that have become almost a part of the sacred hence absolute thus copiously sheltered from criticalxamination and reflexion she urges learned Muslims men and women to differentiate the Sacred from the interpretation of the Sacred Dr Lamrabet laments the inclination of Muslims and non Muslims alike to mbrace human hence forcibly subject to rror interpretations that have contributed to the thriving of a culture that devalues women rather than staying steadfast to the meaning of the Divine She affirms that as believers Muslims women and men are ЯED entitled to uestion the common assertion that only men have the authority and the right to interpret the pronouncements of God This leads her to probe the logic behind the absence ofven a single xegesis tafseer by a Muslim woman throughout the long history of Islam Here she promptly stresses that the ndgame of her book "is not the promotion of an xclusive feminine interpretation at the "not the promotion of an xclusive feminine interpretation at the of centuries old classical Moreno exegesis or to

based on gender or raceIn this reading Dr Lamrabet focuses on stories of important and inspiring women who had an imperative rule in the history of Islam I got to dive deeper into their stories and the context of those stories and read about them from a female perspective rather than the usual male perspective which was The Exhaustion Breakthrough enlightening It also discusses some topics that concern women and are mentioned in the ur an However I had an issue with the tone of the book because at times it felt a bit defensive and I think the note of the publishe. Today the issue of Muslim women is held hostage between two perceptions a conservative Islamic approach and a liberal Western approach At the heart of this debate Muslim women are seeking to reclaim their right to speak in order to re appropriate their own destinies calling for theuality and liberation that is at the heart of the ur'anHowever with few female commentators on the meaning of the ur'an and an overreliance on the readings of th.
