About the Author

Sa'diyya Shaikh is senior lecturer of religious studies at the University of Cape Town.


Through an attentive reading of references to women and gender across Ibn 'Arabi's corpus, Shaikh uses the monumental Sufi thinker's work to argue for a comprehensive rethinking of the gendered theological anthropology that is foundational to various systems of Muslim ethics.--Journal of Religious Ethics
[A] pioneering study. . . [that] begins to open new vistas in the study of this complex and difficult author.--Times Literary Supplement
Elegant in its prose and complex in its arguments, this book is a very significant, thoughtful contribution to an emerging tradition of engaged and self-reflective Muslim scholarship on pre-modern texts in conversation with questions, approaches, and concerns of contemporary Muslim societies. . . .

Shaikh's groundbreaking Sufi Narratives of Intimacy not only makes a significant contribution to the growing body of scholarship on issues of gender and Islam, but also serves as an eloquent and accessible introduction to the life and work of Muhyi al-Din ibn Arabi, unquestionably one of the most important voices in the Islamic tradition.--American Journal of Islamic Sciences
The most theoretically informed and conceptually innovative approach to this fascinating material to date.--Journal of Sufi Studies
