Leyla Jagiella: 4/34 and Domestic Violence


Leyla’s an old friend of mine who has shared some tremendous insights into the Quran with me. She’s an old hand at ta’wil and she wrote an excellent article about the mistranslation of 4/34 and its effects on domestice violence: http://leylajagiella.wordpress.com/2009/03/17/verse-434-and-domestic-violence/

I have to disagree with her here as I do not see ‘default’ meanings as default at all. Much has been done to taint the Quran’s semantics and we need to put things right.
