Jesus Was a Feminist— What about Muhammad?

September 6, 2016

Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad was the second Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a Muslim sect that officially had its start in India in 1889.  Although the sect’s teachings are regarded as heretical by many more familiar branches of Islam, they have between 10 and 20 million followers in at least 200 countries worldwide.

During his lifetime (1889-1965), Mahmood Ahmad wrote the Tafseer-e-Kabeera, a comprehensive, 10 volume exegesis of the Quaran.  The commentary’s “intent [is] to remove the bias and prejudice against Islam, and make a better understanding of its teachings possible.

The Review of Religions has posted a translation (by the Fazl-e-Omar Foundation) of one commentary that will be of particular interest to Christian feminists.

Read, “Muhammadsa – The Liberator of Women.”
