Some eighty per cent of Muslims in the contemporary world speak languages other than Arabic, the language of the Qur an To respond to the needs of their communities, Muslim scholars and laypersons must increasingly explain and communicate the meanings of the Qur an in their own languages including through the medium of Qur an commentary and translation.The Qur an and itSome eighty per cent of Muslims in the contemporary world speak languages other than Arabic, the language of the Qur an To respond to the needs of their communities, Muslim scholars and laypersons must increasingly explain and communicate the meanings of the Qur an in their own languages including through the medium of Qur an commentary and translation.The Qur an and its Readers Worldwide provides an introduction to this rich and expanding field of endeavour It brings together a selection of Qur an commentaries and translations produced across the twentieth century to the present day, and ranging in provenance from the regions of the traditional Islamic heartlands to the new loci of global Islam Individual chapters examine works in Arabic, Bosnian, Chinese, English, German, Malay, Persian, Swahili, Turkish and Urdu, each viewed in terms of the impact of modernity on the encounter with the Qur an, providing an English readership with an exceptionally broad overview.Situating these works in their cultural and national settings, this volume focuses attention on the relationship between language, culture and sociopolitical environment in Qur an commentary and translation It highlights the linkages between the Qur an translations and commentaries studied and the developments and debates that generated them, and to which they respond, whether associated with colonial realities, the challenges of nation building, or the search for ways to reconstruct Islamic culture in the face of new legal frameworks or societal models.Through a detailed introduction and a series of case studies this book illustrates the defining trends in Qur an commentary worldwide, addressing evolving questions of authorship, message, intended readership and media of communication It highlights the continued relevance of Qur an commentary as an authoritative Islamic tradition in a period of growing direct engagement with the sacred text It also samples debates concerning Qur anic meaning in translation that are pertinent for many millions of Muslims today, and that look set to grow in tandem with globalisation.
