Social Justice in Islam

Three recent books focused on law, gender, and Islam not only make important individual contri-butions to theeld of law and religion, but together, in their attention to issues of gender, sex, vio-lence, and law, signal an important development in both thiseld and theeld of Islamic studies.This state of theeld essay examines Kecia Ali’s revised and expanded edition ofSexual Ethics andIslam, Ayesha Chaudhry’sDomestic Violence and the Islamic Tradition, and Hina Azam’sSexualViolation in Islamic Law. Individually and collectively, these works shed light on the way that soci-eties use gender as a fundamental tool of social organization and hierarchy.
