Abstract

Quels sont les éléments des écrits canoniques de l'islam qui divisent les savants musulmans ? Quels sont les critères sur lesquels s'appuie aujourd'hui la recherche pour relire, à l'instar de ce qui s'est produit dans d'autres traditions scripturaires, le processus de canonisation de ces écrits ? Comment ces débats critiques historiques influencent-ils encore aujourd'hui la communauté musulmane ?Dès le premier siècle de l'Hégire, l'élaboration du Coran et du Hadith a suscité des controverses multiples, menées parfois avec véhémence, dans un climat de rivalité entre factions concurrentes. La rédaction du Coran et l'établissement de la version uniforme actuelle, tout comme la mise par écrit des traditions prophétiques, ne firent pas l'unanimité parmi les musulmans, tant sunnites que shi'ites. L'intégrité du texte coranique, l'autorité du Hadith comme source de droit ou la légitimité de traduire le Coran ont été contestées, et continuent à l'être de nos jours, comme en témoignent de nombreux débats. Ce volume, émanant de chercheurs internationaux reconnus en leur domaine, aborde sous un éclairage nouveau les différents aspects liés au processus de canonisation des textes sacrés et les discordes doctrinales qui en sont issues

Abstract

We are used to understanding the Qur'an as the "Islamic text" par excellence, an assumption which, when viewed historically, is not evident at all. More than twenty years before it rose to the rank of Islamic Scripture, the Qur'an was an oral proclamation addressed by the Prophet Muhammad to pre-Islamic listeners, for the Muslim community had not yet been formed. We might best describe these listeners as individuals educated in late antique culture, be they Arab pagans familiar with the monotheistic religions of Judaism and Christianity or syncretists of these religions, or learned Jews and Christians whose presence is reflected in the Medinan suras. The interactive communication process between Muhammad and these groups brought about an epistemic turn in Arab Late Antiquity: with the Qur'anic discovery of writing as the ultimate authority, the nascent community attained a new 'textual coherence' where Scripture, with its valorisation of history and memory, was recognised as a guiding concept. It is within this new biblically imprinted world view that central principles and values of the pagan Arab milieu were debated. This process resulted in a twin achievement: the genesis of a new scripture and the emergence of a community. Two great traditions, then, the Biblical, transmitted by both Jews and Christians, and the local Arabic, represented in Ancient Arabic poetry, appear to have established the field of tension from which the Qur'an evolved; it is both Scripture and Poetry which have produced and shaped the new Muslim community.

Abstract

This book examines the challenges and resources that the Islamic tradition offers to Muslim scholars who seek to address this dilemma. This is achieved through extensive study of the intellectual history of a Qur'anic verse that has become especially contentious in the modern period: Chapter 4, Verse 34 (Q. 4:34) which can be read to permit the physical disciplining of disobedient wives at the hands of their husbands. Though this verse has been used by historical and contemporary Muslim scholars in multiple ways to justify the right of husbands to physically discipline their wives, progressive and reformist Muslim scholars and activists offer alternative and non-violent readings of the verse. The diverse and divergent interpretations of Q. 4:34 showcases the pivotal role of the reader in shaping the meaning and implications of scriptural texts. This book investigates the sophisticated and creative interpretive approaches to Q. 4:34, tracing the intellectual history of Muslim scholarship on this verse from the ninth century to the present day. Ayesha S. Chaudhry examines the spirited and diverse, and at times contradictory, readings of this verse to reveal how Muslims relate to their inherited tradition and the Qur'anic text.--Provided by publisher.
