Individual responsibility, when it comes to communicating, learning and teaching is central to the Islamic message. Muslims are expected to be "witnesses to their message before people", which means speaking in a decent way, preventing cheating and corruption, and respecting the environment. Integrity in politics and the rejection of usurious speculation in economics are principles that are pushing Muslim citizens and scholars to explore new avenues that bring public life and interpersonal ethics together.
More broadly, the Muslim presence should be perceived as positive, too. Neither is it introducing dogmatism into the debate, as if spiritual and religious traditions automatically draw on authoritarian sources.
They can operate within both the limits of the law and in the open public sphere. On the contrary, the Muslim presence can play a critical role in thinking about our future and shaping a new common narrative. It can help recall and revive some of the fundamental principles upon which the cultures of Europe are based.
To put it another way, Muslims remind their fellow citizens that one cannot simply get rid of older ethical traditions and replace them with a supposedly neutral rule of law or by impartial values formed in a free market. To agree on the rule of law, equality and democratic transparency is surely not enough.

Contemporary crises within societies, and at the international level, remind us we need more ethics in our public life, not merely more efficiency. This book represents an important contribution to Muslim feminist scholarship, as it poses feminist ethical queries about patriarchy and gender equality in the field of Islamic studies, especially related to hermeneutics and jurisprudence.
Acknowledging the politicised dimension of issues related to Islam and gender, the author enriches the analysis of Sunni intellectual history on this verse, an analysis that can be deemed a post-colonial feminist stance. On the contrary, her complex analysis and positioning as a Muslim woman, who is attached to both her religion and belief in gender equality, make this book a valuable, challenging and courageous contribution to contemporary Muslim feminist scholarship.
