Yasir Qadhi Analysed

Garrett Kiriakos-Fugate, Yasir Qadhi, Homophobia, and Preaching a Muslim Men’s Heterosexual Piety

"The Muslim-American preacher Yasir Qadhi has spoken extensively about men’s sexuality. Specifically on the topic of homosexuality and marriage through his lectures, articles, and status updates: posted and shared through YouTube, his public Facebook page, and popular online Muslim journals such as MuslimMatters. Qadhi is often preoccupied with homosexuality, a preoccupation that, I argue, does work in defining the boundaries of heterosexual piety for the Muslim American men to whom he preaches." Analysis/opinion. This formed part of a panel on “Popular Preachers, Gendered Authority, and the Digital Ummah” at the recent AAR - sounds like an interesting panel.
