An internationally acclaimed scholar, who has dedicated more than fifty years of her life to understanding the Islamic world.Annemarie Schimmel examines a much-misunderstood feature of Islam: the role of women. Schimmel is critical of those--especially Western feminists--who take Islam to task without taking the time to comprehend the cultures, language, and traditions of the many societies in which Islam is the majority religion.Shattering stereotypes, Schimmel reconstructs an important but little-known chapter of Islamic spirituality. With copius examples, she shows the clear equality of women and meni nthe conception of the Prophet Muhammad, the Quran, the feminine language of the mystical tradition, and the role of holy mothers and unmarried women as manifestations of God.This work is studded with luminous texts from Arabic, Turkish, Persian, and particularly Indo-Muslim cultures, which reveal how physical love can give expression to the highest forms of mysticism.

Annemarie Schimmel was born in Erfurt, Germany on April 7, 1922 and attended the University of Berlin and the University of Marburg. Schimmel has taught at the University of Ankara in Turkey, Harvard University, and Bonn University. Along with writing more than eighty books and essays, Schimmel has translated literature from the Arabic, Persian, Turkish and Sindhi languages into German and English. She was honored on her 75th birthday by having the Annemarie Schimmel Chair for Indo-Muslim Culture established at Bonn University.
