Barlas argues for a clear distinction between the Qur’an (as the self-revelation of God to the Prophet Muhammad), on the one hand, and the tafsir, ahadith, and shari’a, on the other.
Among her conclusions, Barlas asserts that, “We may also find that [the Qur’an] comes closest to articulating sexual relationships in the kind of ‘non-oppositional and non-hierarchical’ mode that many scholars believe can be liberating for both women and men” (202, emphasis original).
Barlas brings a mastery of both Muslim and Western scholarship to her subject, and the clarity and incisiveness of her arguments are a wonderful lesson in creative and principled debate about fundamental issues in Islam.

 Amazon.com: "Believing Women" in Islam: Unreading Patriarchal Interpretations of the Qur'an: Books: Asma Barlas   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
Persuaded that Islam is a religion of egalitarianism, Barlas is equally clear that misogyny and patriarchy have seeped into Islamic practice through "traditions": the sunna, or the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam; the hadiths, or sayings attributed to Muhammad; and the shariah, or law derived from the Qur'an.
Barlas argues that a military-scholarly complex manipulated the Qur'an to establish these traditions in a successful effort to preserve the position of the military rulers and clerics of early Islamic history with women's status being the victim.
Barlas deconstructs the misogyny that patriarchal entities have assigned to the Qur'an and continues the work of Amina Wadud in her re-reading of the Qur'an.

 Barlas, "Believing Women" in Islam, University of Texas Press
Beginning with a historical analysis of religious authority and knowledge, Barlas shows how Muslims came to read inequality and patriarchy into the Qur'an to justify existing religious and social structures and demonstrates that the patriarchal meanings ascribed to the Qur'an are a function of who has read it, how, and in what contexts.
To the contrary, Barlas convincingly asserts that the Qur'an affirms the complete equality of the sexes, thereby offering an opportunity to theorize radical sexual equality from within the framework of its teachings.
