These seven short essays provide a brief and cogent overview of selected "Hadiths "(traditions of the Prophet Muhammad used as sources for religious law) that the author contends were not only revolutionary for their time but have retained their potential to drastically revolutionize Islamic societies today. Each Hadith is presented in the words of classical Muslim commentators, followed by Algosaibi's interpretation. He frames the Hadiths as they can and should be applied to contemporary circumstances, lending new vitality to modern Muslim social and political life. A bold and clearly reasoned call for reform, "A Revolution in the Sunnah "concisely demonstrates the progressive urge at the core of Islamic tradition. The topics covered are political integrity; the role of women in society and the military; civil rights; privacy; cruelty to animals; family planning; and torture.
