The History of Women's Mosques in Chinese Islam

Availability: Ready to download

This is a study of Chinese Hui Muslim women's historic and unrelenting spiritual, educational, political and gendered drive for an institutional presence in Islamic worship and leadership: 'a mosque of one's own' as a unique feature of Chinese Muslim culture. The authors place the historical origin of women's segregated religious institutions in the Chinese Islamic diaspor This is a study of Chinese Hui Muslim women's historic and unrelenting spiritual, educational, political and gendered drive for an institutional presence in Islamic worship and leadership: 'a mosque of one's own' as a unique feature of Chinese Muslim culture. The authors place the historical origin of women's segregated religious institutions in the Chinese Islamic diaspora's fight for survival, and in their crucial contribution to the cause of ethnic/religious minority identity and solidarity. Against the presentation of complex historical developments of women's own site of worship and learning, the authors open out to contemporary problems of sexual politics within the wider society of socialist China and beyond to the history of Islam in all its cultural diversity.

    Very good introduction to the concept of Islam, role of Muslims and Mosques in China. However, it does not do a good job of explaining the islamic perspective of woman and jam packs them as the same as the Judeo-Christian view. It was a confucious and buddhist tradition mixed with a Christian tradition that demeaned woman as sinners and having no place in heaven that was then incorporated by Muslims, not Islam. However today things are changing slowly towards the allowance and great freedom give Very good introduction to the concept of Islam, role of Muslims and Mosques in China. However, it does not do a good job of explaining the islamic perspective of woman and jam packs them as the same as the Judeo-Christian view. It was a confucious and buddhist tradition mixed with a Christian tradition that demeaned woman as sinners and having no place in heaven that was then incorporated by Muslims, not Islam. However today things are changing slowly towards the allowance and great freedom given to woman by God, but Man is the one who has always spoken and practiced otherwise. It is a very potent and a contemporary topic to understand which is woman's place in the Mosque in America and the world. It is not a feminist agenda either. Worth reading as a first reading. Since I have actually visited such Chinese mosques and being an Architect in America who deals with this topic, I consider this topic an important field of discussion and debate professionally and personally as a Muslim woman in America.
