Review by Professor Dr. Stefan Jacob Weimer (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich)

Benjamin Idriz is likely the only imam in Germany with a PhD in Islamic Theology who also writes in German. Both – the patron’s practical orientation and scholarly familiarity with the sources – characterize his new book. It is with these qualities that they emerge from a veritable deluge of publications of all kinds on the “issue of women” in Islam.

For many years, the author became famous far from the small town of Penzberg in Upper Bavaria, where he worked as an imam, and through Munich, where he launched the “Munich Forum for Islam”: his work is based on a true understanding that Islam linked to the values ​​of German and European society in our time is not only compatible, but It draws common values ​​from the sources of Islam – the Qur’an and the tradition of the prophets.

Especially on the topic of “The Qur’an and Women”, this approach can open the eyes of many. Because Idrez does not in any way deny the sad and shocking enough facts. He relentlessly exposes them and labels them for what they are: disgraceful deviations in the history of Muslims, and unfortunately also in the present, and it shows what the Qur’an really says about it.

On the other hand, it addresses the general public who have little or no chance to be informed competently through media reports. On the other hand, it addresses Muslims directly and above all invites them to review their established behavior and ways of thinking and return to what God intended in the Qur’an and what the Messenger really said in his hadiths. What not.

He does not allow himself to fall into the current trend of reinventing Islam, but rather shows it efficiently and how the Qur’an and Sunnah wanted to achieve women’s liberation, appreciation, equality and continuing to demand them from the beginning. .
The book opens new horizons for everyone who is affected by the question or believes they can have an opinion.
The debate about women in Islam could no longer be conducted in Germany without this book.

While other religious leaders appeared strangely silent about the oppression of women, Muhammad greatly elevated the standing of women from a religious and state policy perspective. Muhammad was by far the most radical and empowering in his treatment of women. He was probably the first feminist in history. ”Jim Garrison, Huffpost.
