Abstract

Gender equality in Islam has orientation on righteous that is part of liberal thought meanwhile there is an opposition from some Muslim that the concept of gender equality is unacceptable one. The presence of Islam which was brought by Muhammad the messenger was to elevate woman position in society. While observing some fiqh books, it is found that the books have masculine nuance and have more alignments on man side. In particular, it is not found any chapters that discuss about woman. That is an interesting commentary on gender bias in fiqh discourse. In order to avoid an historical dichotomy that leads suspicion on fiqh that deals with gender bias, this article tries to discuss how to understand gender equality according to Islamic law (Analysis of Fiqh Continuity Evolution Theory).

Abstract

This paper discusses polygamy in the perspective of the Qur’an, which is contained in the letter of an-Nisa, 4:3 and 129. Polygamy is allowed by the Qur’an. Illat (because) the permissibility of polygamy is not driven by a sexual motivation or biological comfort, but by motivation religious, social, and humanity for the purpose of religious and social benefit and accompanied by fair condition among the wives. Although polygamy is allowed, but it should be underlined that the Qur’an suggests polygamy great potential to cause injustice. Hence the principle in the Qur’an is a monogamous marriage. Polygamy is similar to an aircraft emergency exit that can only be opened in an emergency.

However, this place benefit could not be obtained by every moslem, for example menstruating women.

Abstract

This article attempts to portray a new epistemological wave which comes into life as the true heir to postmodernism that criticizes modernism or positivism epistemology, to be more exact. It seems that there is an attempt on deletion of the border of gender hegemony. This hegemony is invisible but exquisite because it works on the form of knowledge and power or knowledge and interest. This article tries to search the basis of feminism epistemology and its critical consequences on the component of positivism epistemology, as the basic foundation of hegemonic world perspective. The analysis is begun from the description of racial phenomena which is the root of feminism problems.  The next analysis is on the root of epistemic history as the foundation of gender hegemony. An analysis on western feminism is also needed before coming to the major analysis of deconstruction effort on gender hegemony of positivism. On the other hand, the root of gender bias on the perspective of normative-theology will have little portion on the analysis.
