Dr Shadaab Rahemtulla is a Lecturer in Inter-Faith Studies and World Religions at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. He recently published a book entitled Qur’an of the Oppressed: Liberation Theology and Gender Justice in Islam

 

To coincide with the book’s publication, Dr Rahemtulla wrote a blog post for Oxford University Press’ blog, entitled ‘Whose Qur’an?’. In this post he discusses liberation theology in relation to Islam. In particular, he examines some of the key features in the ways the Qur’an has been interpreted to address social oppression and Muslims have found within it ‘a progressive message of social justice that can speak to contexts of marginalization, from poverty and patriarchy to racism, empire, and interreligious communal violence.’
