Maḥmūd Shalt=ut and Islamic Modernism


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the works of Maḥmūd Shaltūt relevant to the pressing need of contemporary Muslims to address specific social issues that have arisen in modern times or that for some reasons have become newly prominent. Shaltūt responded to this need in his fatwās issued in response to specific questions and in his monographs on topics of particular social relevance. This chapter analyses the social issues that confronted the Muslims including the role of women, relations with non-Muslims, family planning, and birth control.

Keywords:   Maḥmūd Shaltūt, social issues, Muslims, fatwās, role of women, non-Muslims, family planning, birth control
