Dr Feras Hamza is Head of the School of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Wollongong in Dubai, UAE, and is also a Research Fellow in the Qur’anic Studies Unit at the Institute of Ismaili Studies, London.

His latest publication, Women, Households, and the Hereafter in the Qur'an: a Patronage of Piety (with Karen Bauer; Oxford University Press, 2023), applies a historical-critical method to the study of women in the Qur’an. It highlights the importance of the late antique social structures of households and patronage for the Qur’an's moral worldview. This book also shows how Qur’anic doctrine on women and sexual morality was central to the identity of the emergent Muslim community.

He is the general series editor for the multi-volume Anthology of Qur'anic Commentaries, including Volume I: On the Nature of the Divine (with Sajjad Rizvi and Farhana Mayer; Oxford University Press, 2008) and Volume II: On Women (with Karen Bauer; Oxford University Press, 2021). He is also an editor for the Brill series Islamic Literatures: Texts and Studies.

He has authored several historical articles on the early Muslim community, as well as articles on the epistemological and methodological approaches in Qur’anic and tafsīr studies. He is currently working on a hermeneutics-based project entitled Time and Narrative in the Qur’an.
