The Earth Is a Home for You

With all the displacement and disasters of the 21st century, both natural and man-made, people can feel disconnected from the place in which they find themselves living, Dr. Ingrid Mattson said in a lecture on June 21 at Hartford Seminary.

Dr. Mattson, who taught at the Seminary from 1998-2012, discussed those challenges and how to respond to them in a talk she called "The Earth Is a Home for You."

"Disasters really force us back to our bodies," she said, describing her family's experience during the October 2011 snowstorm in Connecticut. "They are about place. ... Where we are and who is with us determines how we survive. One minute we are strangers, the next we are clutching hands in the dark."

Finding that send of place and connectedness can be difficult, though, for people who are new to the place they're living, including those who have fled oppression.

"We live in a time of great displacement and transition," she said. "To feel like we belong, we need to be connected to both the nature and the culture of that place."

Often, Dr. Mattson said, it's easier to connect to the land and to "non-human beings" than it is to connect to the culture. "The Qu'ran talks about other creatures as having their own communities that intersect with ours."

Along with finding a place in the community, Dr. Mattson talked about the responsibility to live simply and lessen consumption so that we don't infringe on the rights of those struggling to meet basic needs.

Lessening consumption — and understanding the difference between desires and needs — is a "better spiritual practice," she said. Indulging in luxuries impacts "the ability of others to meet their urgent life-sustaining needs." Energy consumption in the United States and Canada is just one example, she said.

Dr. Mattson is the London and Windsor Community Chair in Islamic Studies at Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada. At Hartford Seminary, she was a Professor of Islamic Studies, founder of the Islamic Chaplaincy Program and director of the Macdonald Center for Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations.

How the Qur’an Shapes the Sunni Community

This talk Dr. Mattson gave last March at Rice University, in Houston, Texas:

Modern and Classical Interpretations of Islamic Scripture
March 10-11, 2016

The Communities of the Qur’an conference brought together eminent scholars and practitioners of various Islamic traditions to discuss and deliberate each traditions' respective interpretations of Qur'anic verses.

It comes in the wake of increased sectarian violence in the Middle East, renewed military intervention in the region and a rise in Islamophobia.

This conference-–the first of its kind-– placed rich, diverse and at times opposing interpretations of the Qur’an, in direct conversation with one another.

Women and Men in Islam as Allies – (Interview with Prof. Ingrid Mattson)

Are women and men in Islam allies?

Prof. Ingrid Mattson speaks in this interview during her visit to Germany at the Institute for Islamic Theology (University Osnabrück) on a range of topics regarding women, men and Islam.

These topics include stories of Muslim women, which are not told, the responsiveness of the Qur’an to women’s concerns, gender role models and the Qur’anic ideal of shared responsibility between men and women.

Her talk given in the lecture series “Islam and the question of gender” with the title “And the believers, men and women, are allies of one another.”

Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’an:

And the believers, men and women, are allies of one another.

They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger.

Those – Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” (9:71)

The first question in this interview was on the concept of the conspiracy of silence: about the fact that the stories about Muslim women are not told often, or even aren’t told at all.

Why is this?

And what can we do about it?

In her answer to this question, Dr. Mattson responds to the issue of women in public life by first going back to the history of Islam, where you find the names of women in the chains of transmission of fiqh texts and hadith texts.

By looking up the references of these women, the normal question which comes to mind is why did these women disappear?

One of the reasons discovered was that some modern publications of traditional texts were not academically accurate, in the sense that some modern versions of these books omitted parts of the original transcripts, and often this included parts where Muslim women scholars from the past were mentioned.

For more reasons and answers to other interesting questions related to men and women as allies in Islam, don’t miss this 31 minute interview with Dr. Mattson.

How to Tell a Beautiful Story: The Tale of Joseph in the Qur’an

In introducing the Surah (Chapter) of Joseph, the Qur’an says, “We will relate to you the most beautiful story.”

What follows is a tale with suspense, drama and complex characters.

The motifs of dreams, shirts and hidden objects woven throughout the narrative point to the theme of the illusory nature of the world.

This is a story that requires the engagement of the imagination to understand deeper meanings, which is appropriate, as it is only by employing the faithful imagination that a believer can see himself as he truly is.
