In fact, if relatively little research has been conducted on female same-sex desire in medieval Europe, even less has been produced on homosexuality in the medieval Arabic literary or Islamicate tradition, and almost no research at all has been done on medieval Arab Islamicate lesbianism. This state of scholarship into alternative sexual practices in the Arab Islamicate world is especially astonishing considering the survival of a noteworthy body of primary texts dealing precisely with this topic.

Religion is a holy text plus interpretations plus local culture plus local condition " As'as Abu Khalil cited in Habib The anthropologists' discovery that different societies perceive homosexual behaviours differently, brought some of them to state that homosexuality is a "cultural construct" influenced by local conceptions of gender, instead of a "sexual identity" as stated by essentialists. In this paper I will try to reconcile constructivist and essentialist approaches in order to explore the hidden phenomenon of female homosexuality in Islamic countries, which has been largely denied within literature about Muslim women. At first I will use a constructivist approach to understand Islamic negative attitude toward homosexuality, principally due to the binary notion of sexuality emphasized in the Qua'ran.
