Homosexuality is anathema to Islam — or so the majority of both believers and non-believers suppose. Throughout the Muslim world, it is met with hostility, where state punishments range from hefty fines to the death penalty. Likewise, numerous scholars and commentators maintain that the Qur’an and Hadith rule unambiguously against same-sex relations. This pioneering study argues that there is far more nuance to the matter than most believe. In its narrative of Lot, the Qur’an could be interpreted as condemning lust rather homosexuality. While some Hadith are fiercely critical of homosexuality, some are far more equivocal. One even appears to actively endorse love between men. This is the first book length treatment to offer a detailed analysis of how Islamic scripture, jurisprudence, and Hadith, can not only accommodate a sexually sensitive Islam, but actively endorse it. Scott Kugle is the first Muslim to publish widely on the issue of homosexuality and Islam. An independent research scholar in Islamic studies, he has previously held positions at Duke University, the University of Cape Town, and Swarthmore College.

    Feminist Muslim scholars have continuously pointed out how tolerance of diversity is significantly lacking in Islamic communities with regard to gender, one of the most fundamental markers of difference in all human communities.

    The fact that women’s dignity and equality are treated as an issue of “minority rights” – when women are numerically equal (or greater than) men and are indispensably central to the well-being of all human communities – is indicative of the depth of the problem and the reluctance of men and the institutions they establish and run to justly
