Course Description

This course looks at various aspects of the science of Divine revelation, how the Qur`an was revealed, preserved, compiled and transmitted through generation after generation. It also briefly covers the exegesis (tafsir) and translation of the Quran. The importance of such a subject is that if one is to properly grasp the Divine Message one needs to fully understand the ciscrumstances that surround the message. Although some part of this special knowledge can be derived from the Qur’an itself, there remain other areas of knowledge that can only be discovered by wider study and research. The branch of knowledge, called ‘Ulum al-Qur’an will give one a complete understanding of the message of the Qur’an, by understanding its setting and circumstances.

According to a general definition, ‘ulum al-qur’an denotes studies concerned with the book of revelations sent down upon the last Prophet Muhammad (SAW) namely:

– Its revelation.
– Its collection.
– Its order and arrangement.
– It’s writing down.
– Information about the reasons and occasions of revelation.
– About what was revealed in Makkah and what in Madinah.
– About the abrogating and abrogated verses.
– About the ‘clear’ and the ‘unclear’ verses.
– The term also covers Qur’an-related studies, such as:
– The explanation of verses and passages by the Prophet himself, his Companions, their followers and the later exegetes of the Qur’an.
– The methods of explanation.
– The scholars of exegesis and their books.
