With a particular emphasis on definitions, continuities, and change, this edited volume examines the historical role and function of hayaâ€™ â€“ or feelings of shame, modesty, and honor â€“ in Islamic theology and law, and explores contemporary Muslimsâ€™ engagements with the concept. The book explores various conceptions of hayaâ€™ and the practices associated with the concept in both Muslim majority and minority contexts. The empirically rich contributions reveal how hayaâ€™ is socially constructed in varying social and cultural environments across the globe. From medieval Islam to the modern day, this book demonstrates the importance of hayaâ€™ and its temporal and spatial transformations.
