“When I arrived at Yale University to deliver my lecture on

Women and the Recited Qur’an”,

I saw verses of the Qur’an engraved on the façade of the Sterling Memorial Library.

Western universities have treated the Qur’an as a historical and literary document, until very recently —

To date little attention has been paid to the Qur’an as a recited book,

Let alone to the long Islamic tradition of women’s recitation.

*Qur’an, Surah 96, verses 1-5, and Surah 2, verse 256.”
