Author: Mona Siddiqui
September 1, 2012
In The Good Muslim: Reflections on Classical Islamic Law and Theology, RFP scholar Mona Siddiqui explores key themes in Islamic law and theology that continue to be relevant in the modern world. Her topics for reflection range from discussions about friendship, divorce, drunkenness, love, slavery, and ritual slaughter; topics that reveal fascinating insights into Islamic ethics, and the way in which arguments have developed in discourse and for jurists. Because of the specific nature of her topic choice, the work charts its own personal course through the rich history and background of the Islamic tradition and gives insight into Siddiqui’s own thinking and interpretations in her many other works.
