provocative discussions (“sessions”), thoughtful analyses,
and personal creative expression, nine young people from
diverse backgrounds consider their lives as modern Muslim
women in Canada. Majalis al-ilm: Sessions of Knowledge counters
stereotypes with stories, views, and concerns that are
complex and not simplistic. The women consider issues such
as identity, gender, faith, and community and probe the
importance of Islam in their lives.
". . . provides a breath of life into contemporary understanding of the inner dimension of Islam."
“...a beautiful example of women's epistemology in action that, without unduly essentialising men and women, acknowledges and accepts women's ways of knowing, through narrative, experience and intuition.”
