Description : The legal treatment of sexual behavior is a subject that receives little scholarly attention in the field of Middle East women’s studies. Important questions about the relationship between sexuality and the law and about the societies enforcing that relationship are rarely addressed in the current literature. Elyse Semerdjian’s “Off the Straight Path” takes a bold step toward filling that gap by offering a fascinating look at the historical progression of the treatment of illicit sex under Islamic law. Semerdjian provides a comprehensive review of the concept of zina, i.e., sexual indiscretion, by exploring the diverse interpretation of zina crime as presented in a variety of sources from the Qur’an and hadith to legal literature. She then delves into the history of legal responses to zina within the specific community of Aleppo, Syria. Drawing on a wealth of shari‘a court records, Semerdjian provides a realistic view of Syrian society during the Ottoman period. With vivid detail, she describes specific women’s lives and experiences as their cases are presented before the court. Semerdjian argues that the actual treatment of zina crimes in the courts differs substantially from sentences prescribed by codified Islamic jurisprudence. In contrast to the violent corporal punishments dictated in the Islamic legal code, the courts often punished crimes of sexual indiscretion with nonviolent sentences, such as removal from the community. Employing exceptional insight, “Off the Straight Path” presents a powerful challenge to the traditional view of Islamic law, enabling a richer understanding of Islamic society.

Description : If piety, faith, and conviction constitute one side of the religious coin, then imperfection, uncertainty, and ambivalence constitute the other. Yet, scholars tend to separate these two domains and place experiences of inadequacy in everyday religious life – such as a wavering commitment, religious negligence or weakness in faith – outside the domain of religion ‘proper.’ Straying from the Straight Path breaks with this tendency by examining how self-perceived failure is, in many cases, part and parcel of religious practice and experience. Responding to the need for comparative approaches in the face of the largely separated fields of the anthropology of Islam and Christianity, this volume gives full attention to moral failure as a constitutive and potentially energizing force in the religious lives of both Muslims and Christians in different parts of the world.

Description : The Straight Path: A Religious Guide to Finding and Fulfilling One’s Purpose describes the straight path, and how to walk it, so as to discover one’s purpose and fulfill that purpose. It examines the relationship between the soul, the mind and the body, and explains how to strengthen their connection by acting virtuously and avoiding vice. It describes how to establish a closer connection to God. The Bible, the Quran and other sacred texts have explored the nature of the straight path. The Buddha, Mencius, Mahatma Gandhi and other prophets and philosophers have devoted their lives to walking it. The Straight Path draws upon what they have learned, and adds to their knowledge, by merging their wisdom with modern scientific insights into humanity’s evolution. The Straight Path examines how thought and action shape evolution, and how evolution is a physical, mental and spiritual process of development. It describes how to strengthen one’s mind and body, and by doing so, strengthen humanity. It gives direction to those who have lost their way and answers to those who seek greater meaning to their lives. The Straight Path shall guide you along your path and help you to fulfill your purpose. It shall help you to draw closer to God.

Description : This book is a depiction of the struggle that I had growing up in a household based on religious beliefs versus spirituality. It caused me to want to find out what I thought I was missing in the world. It brings to mind the story of the prodigal son leaving his father's home in search of what he thought he was missing in the world. What he found out was that the grass only looked greener on the other side. I was church hurt, so I was looking for something to fulfill that void. Sometimes people confuse "church hurt" with being "God hurt"! My love for God never changed, only my love for how people had chosen to interpret God's Word. Our job is to tell people about the love of God and not to be judgmental of others. I believe that if we show others the love of God, he will do the convicting if it's necessary. I'm telling my story to let others know how far left we can push people by following the patterns of religion versus being spiritual and allowing God to do his work in others the same way he did for you. I sincerely hope that this book will help someone who was/is struggling with the same things that I struggled with. May God bless you and I keep you in my prayer. I pray you enjoy!

Description : This volume looks at spatialization of abstract concepts in verbo-pictorial aphorisms at work in the cartoons of a single artist. While extensive work has been done in studying spatialization of abstract concepts in grammar and lexicon within cognitive linguistics, this book is the first of its kind to provide a detailed account of such phenomena in multimodal discourse. The volume integrates a range of approaches from cognitive linguistics, including image schema theory, conceptual theory of metaphor, multimodal metaphor theory, the dynamic approach to metaphor, and a multimodal approach to metonymy, and applies this multi-faceted framework to a selection of cartoons from the work of Polish artist Janusz Kapusta. Taken together, these cartoons form the basis of two comprehensive case studies which explore the abstract concepts of "emotions" and "life," highlighting the ways in which cartoons can illustrate the important relationship between space, situated cognition, and language and in turn, a clear and systematic framework for establishing cohesive ties between the verbal and pictorial modes in multimodal cognitive linguistic research. The volume sheds new light on visual thinking and multimodal rendition of creative abstract thought.

Description : Muslims need a passion for unity. All Muslims believe and follow the Qur’an and Prophet Mohammad and highly respect and admire Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib. Yet despite similar traditions, there is a lack of unity because of an inaccurate understanding of Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib’s vision and mission among many Muslims. In Know and Follow the Straight Path: Finding Common Ground between Sunnis and Shi’as, author Tallal Alie Turfe, a champion of religious tolerance, explores the Qur’an and traditions to find the common ground and common principles between the Islamic schools of thought. He is a strong advocate of intrafaith dialogue that offers the chance for better understanding, collaboration, and partnership among all Muslims. This book is a road map for Muslims to trek the path of truth and certainty in the hope their efforts will lead to a genuine unity as they celebrate their differences as windows of opportunities. As they uproot ignorance with knowledge, they will learn to cooperate with each other. The pledge to unity must begin within themselves, within their families, within their communities, and with each other. Know and Follow the Straight Path: Finding Common Ground between Sunnis and Shi’as provides the whys and hows necessary to winning that unity.
