8Christology—sphere of white men, field of study within Christian theology that is concerned with the nature, teachings, etc of Christ, argues that it ignores the voices of black women, and all those who are oppressed in society (Alice Walker)Multi-dialogic intent—allows womanist theologians to participate in dialog with multiple different religious and political groups with the goal of advancing the groups who are oppressedLiturgical intent- how we can make a womanist perspective relevant to the thought and worship of black churchesDidactic intent- inclination to teaching—says we need to include a teaching function to our theology-we need to use womanist theology to teach Christians about the social justice needs of oppressed peopleWEEK 12 - Women in IslamKnow the terms:Hajj: If economically and physically able, to make at leastone hajj(pilgrimage) to Mecca.Jihad (struggle): Description of one’s inner struggles as one tries to attain goalsSharia: Moral code, legal framework within which the public and some private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islam.Imam: Religious leader who leads prayers (women are not allowed to lead prayers of men)Hijab:“Barrier” for modest dress code.The Five Pillars:1.To recite at least once during their lifetime the shahadah(the creed: "There is no God but God and Muhammad is his Prophet"). Most Muslims repeat it at least daily.2.To perform the salat(prayer) 5 times a day, if possible. This is recited while orienting one's body with qibia (the shorter of the two great circle routes towards the Kaaba at Mecca) This is generally North East in the U.S. 4The five prayers are:Fajr (Morning Prayer)which is performed some time between the break of dawn and just before sunrise.Zuhr (Noon Prayer)offered from just after midday to afternoon.'Asr (Afternoon Prayer)offered from late afternoon until just before sunset
