Islam and AIDS is the first book to comprehensively address the HIV/AIDS pandemic from an Islamic perspective, with contributions from a number of internationally known activists and scholars of Islam, including Kecia Ali and Abdulaziz Sachedina. With an introduction by Peter Piot, Director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, this landmark work provides an insight into new possibilities of critical and progressive Islamic approaches, in both law and ethics, to one of the most urgent crises facing humankind today. Covering emotive issues such as gender, justice, poverty, health, disease, addiction, and sexuality, Islam and AIDS provides the religious analysis so essential for the communities at the forefront of the epidemic.

Review:

"A groundbreaking, thoughtful, balanced and sober engagement of a difficult yet imperative subject. The diverse range of perspectives is realistically representative, yet visionary and humane in its conception and orientation." (Abdullahi A. An-Naim - Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law at Emory University School of Law)

"The first book on Islam and AIDS which has succeeded in putting together within a single volume the whole spectrum of attitudes and positions on the subject expressed by Muslims from different backgrounds. It has raised the debate on some of the controversies related to AIDS to a higher level." (Chandra Muzaffar - President of the International Movement for a Just World)

Book Description:
