Abstract

The freedom of transsexual people in Egypt and their right to change their name and gender in the official papers have been a subject for several studies that have discussed several legal cases and Islamic legal opinions (fatwas) related to transgender: Skovgaard-Petersen analyzed Tantawy's and Khumani's fatwas, Serena Tolino discussed more Islamic Fatwas. In this paper, I will discuss a relatively new case, the 2016 "Noraan" case. I will analyze the ruling of the case, explain the relation between the Egyptian constitution, the Supreme Constitutional Court, and the impact of Islamic Norm interpretation upon transsexual and human rights.
