Logic, Rhetoric and Legal Reasoning in the Qur'an: God's by Rosalind Ward Gwynne

By Rosalind Ward Gwynne

Muslims have regularly used verses from the Qur'an to aid critiques on legislation, theology, or existence as a rule, yet virtually no realization has been paid to how the Qur'an provides its personal precepts as conclusions continuing from reasoned arguments. if it is a question of God's powers of production, the explanation for his acts, or how individuals are to imagine in actual fact approximately their lives and fates, Muslims have so internalized Qur'anic styles of reasoning that many will assert that the Qur'an appeals to start with to the human powers of mind. This publication offers a brand new key to either the Qur'an and Islamic highbrow background. studying Qur'anic argument through shape and never content material is helping readers to find the importance of passages usually neglected by means of the student who compares texts and the believer who focuses upon commandments, because it permits students of Qur'anic exegesis, Islamic theology, philosophy, and legislations to tie their findings in yet one more option to the textual content that Muslims contemplate the speech of God.
