Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is the first of its kind to focus entirely on the Qur?anic interpretation of Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111), a towering figure of Sunni Islam. Martin Whittingham explores both al-Ghazali's hermeneutical methods and his interpretations of particular Quranic texts, and covers al-Ghazali's mystical, legal and theological concerns.

Divided into two parts:

  • part one examines al-Ghazali's legal and Sufi theoretical discussions
  • part two asks how these theories relate to his practice, analysing the only three of al-Ghazali's works which are centrally concerned with interpreting particular Qur?anic passages: Jawahir al-Qur?an (The Jewels of the Qur?an); Al-Qist as al-mustaqim (The Correct Balance); and Mishkat al-anwar (The Niche for Lights).

Providing a new point of access to the works of al-Ghazali, this book will be welcomed by scholars and students of Islamic studies, religious studies, hermeneutics, and anyone interested in how Muslims understand the Qur?an.

Synopsis:

This is one of the first texts to examine the influential writer al-Ghazalis (1058-1111) interpretations of the Quran. The book explores not only particular interpretations, but also his hermeneutical methods, shedding light on both how an important Muslim thinker justifies his views and why he does so in the way he does. Providing a new point of access to the works of al-Ghazali, this work will be welcomed by scholars and students of Islamic studies, religious studies, hermeneutics, and anyone interested in how Muslims understand the Quran.
