The global challenges of our time call for the deepening of our col- lective moral imagination and ethical creativity. I offer an analysis of the nature and roots of social injustice through the lens of Islamic feminist ethics. Islamic feminism emerges from a robust dialogue between core values of the Muslim past with those of the present, to contribute dynamic and egalitarian approaches in embodying reli- gious tradition. Drawing on Muslim resources, I render visible the in- timate relationship between politics and spirituality and proposes an Islamic feminist ethics that fundamentally integrates love and justice.
