nine parts?

Reader comment on item: Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women

Submitted by ameera (Pakistan), Sep 17, 2009 at 03:38

i read this books years ago and am still left with the question Brooks should have addressed early on in her writing: what are these nine parts that Ali had mentioned.

if you know of it or perhaps there is a credible source that can let me hwv this info i would appreciate that.

my interest is in knowing what are the parts of desire that make women such a threat in islamic public sphere. i conclude if men are so much at risk by the female sexuality it is then they who should perhaps stay modest, covered and indoors.

i would apprecaiet any comment that enlightens me.
