9780415365383: Interpreting the Qur'an: Towards a Contemporary Approach

How is the Qur'an - central to all Muslim societies - to be understood today in order to meet the needs of these societies? Abdullah Saeed, a distinguished Muslim scholar, explores the interpretation of the ethico-legal content of the Qur'an, whilst taking into consideration the changing nature of the modern world.

Saeed explores the current debates surrounding the interpretation of the Qur'an, and their impact on contemporary understanding of this sacred text. Discussing the text's relevance to modern issues without compromising the overall framework of the Qur'an and its core beliefs and practices, he proposes a fresh approach, which takes into account the historical and contemporary contexts of interpretation.

Inspiring healthy debate, this book is essential reading for students and scholars seeking a contemporary approach to the interpretation of the Qur'anic text.

Review:

'Debates among Muslims over the conception of the authority of the Qur'an underlie much of what is read about Islam in the popular media these days.  This book by Abdullah Saeed will add a new voice to those debates and, as its impact is felt, broaden the popular conception of what Islam is all about today.' - Andrew Rippin, University of Victoria, Canada

'Saeed does a masterful job... judicious scholarship and temperate, yet scholarly style greatly help to develop his core thesis.' - Jason Walsh, Religion and Theology Journal

'In a field that still lacks adequate historical surveys and monographs, Saeed offers an insightful work ... An intellectually engaging and revealing work.' – American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences

'The book is presented in a scholarly manner and is well-documented. Many will find it a useful teaching and learning aid whose contents are clear, concise and eminently readable. The approach adopted is promising and the book is a welcome addition to the field of Qur'anic studies.' -Islamic Studies journal
