This issue of the Journal for Islamic Studies consists of a diverse set of articles, book reviews and a report. They cover issues dealt with in previous volumes of the Journal for Islamic Studies, with an important and nuanced caveat. The articles begin with Loimeier's study of Islamic political discourse in Zanzibar, and conclude with Mraja's review of al-Amin Mazrui's popular legal text. Cobbett's essay on Islamic finance examines the workings of an increasingly popular field, while Mathee searches Timbuktu Muftis' fatwas for women's agency. The final report by Shaikh, Hoel and Kajee documents Cape Town's Muslim women's experiences of marital relations.
