This special issue brings together four case studies that explore, from a comparative angle, the interrelation between current trends towards moral renewal in Muslim Africa on the one hand, and transformations of gender relations on the other. The case studies illustrate that current attempts to return to more 'authentic' interpretations of Islam are effected partly through substantial reconfigurations of prevailing gender norms and practices.
