Abstract

This article deals specifically with the question of sexuality in relation to a wife's sexual rights in Muslim Shi'i law. It sheds light on the works of Muslim Shi'i Lebanese jurisconsult, Muhammad Huseyn Fadl-Allah, who has been instrumental in bringing many changes to gender issues—be it on the ideological or legal levels. This article briefly analyses the roles played by Shi'i women and the Shi'i specific notion of ijtihad in the formulation of progressive rulings that are responsive to women's aspirations.
