Product Description


"I admire [El-Awa] for being one of the few contemporary young intellectuals with the ambition - and also the talent and scholarship - to force a dialogue between Western linguistics and Qur'anic hermeneutics... El-Awa's achievement in this book remains that of showing how the contemporary themes of Western linguistics are relevant to Qur'anic hermeneutics, and how an interpreter could spell out some of the complex arguments concerning the issue rather more precisely for her readers." - Abdul Rahim Afaki, Department of Philosophy, University of Karachi, Pakistan; Journal of Shi'a Islamic Studies Winter 2011, Vol IV No. 1 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Salwa El-Awa is a Lecturer in Qur'anic Studies at the Department of Theology and Religion, University of Birmingham, where she teaches Qur'anic hermeneutics and methods of Islamic text interpretation.  Her main research interest is analysis of Qur'anic discourse.  Among her recent publications are a study on repetition in the Qur'an and an Arabic book on the role of context in interpretation of Qur'anic homonyms.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
first of all very heavy/ technical/ geeky book, took me a long time to get to the main meat of the book, but once i got through the first few pages the rest was very very enjoyable, shows how a passage is linked to the next how the conversation proceeds and advances into the next even if it appears completely divorced from the last small subtle indicators which normally go unnoticed, shows how each and every ayah is related and warranted by the last ayah.
she take the approach that the reader knows nothing when reading the surah and as the reader works their way through the words the library of words and context are extracted and the library grows by each word and she keeps reminding us aware of the changes inside the mind of the reader and shows how seamlessly and in sync the text is with the readers thoughts making the passages relevant to the readers questions as they progress through the utterance.
recommend the book if you have ever wondered what make the quran miraculous this doesn't do the quran justice but its definelty a great book in English!
