My research interests extend from the early classical period to the present and include translation of classical Arabic texts, Quranic interpretation, women’s issues, and modern day reformist and neo-traditionalist movements.


My works address different topics and audiences, yet each is connected directly to my primary scholarship in classical texts, and each helps to bridge the past and the present in Islamic studies, while also making key sources more readily accessible to a variety of audiences and dealing with issues of critical importance in the contemporary world.
