Muslima theology arises in response to ongoing discourses within and outside of Muslim communities. It seeks to build upon existing Islamic feminist contributions by outlining and deploying a new methodology that is simultaneously constructive, theological, and comparative. This chapter introduces the approach of Muslima theology, with a particular emphasis on the ‘why’, ‘how’, and ‘what’. It traces the reasons for, the methodology of, and an example of the constructive content of Muslima theology related to theological anthropology. Throughout this chapter, the primary emphasis is on the comparative component of Muslima theology, underscoring the necessity and strategic value of interreligious feminist engagement.
