Download PDF by Hannah Amhaz: Tabari und Co - Methoden und Vielfalt der Koranexegese am

By Hannah Amhaz

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Orientalistik / Sinologie - Islamwissenschaft, notice: 1,0, Freie Universität Berlin, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Manche sagen, der Islam bedeute Frieden und andere behaupten das Gegenteil. Manche sagen, der Koran mache den Menschen frei und andere sehen in ihm nur Verbote. Viele Menschen diskutieren unaufhörlich über das Wesen des Islam und welches von dem, was once in seinem Namen geschieht, tatsächlich zu ihm gehört.
Als ich begann, für diese Arbeit zu recherchieren, stellten sich mir viele Fragen: Wer darf eigentlich darüber entscheiden, was once der Koran „meint“, mit dem, used to be er „sagt“? Wie muss ein textual content interpretiert werden, der vor über tausend Jahren zu Papier gebracht wurde? Welches Koranverständnis hatten frühe Muslime und used to be ist davon heute noch übrig? Wie viel culture ist nötig und sinnvoll für ein differenziertes Verständnis und welche Rolle spielt dabei die eigene Vernunft? All diese Fragen spielen in die Thematik dieser Arbeit mit hinein, welche am Beispiel unterschiedlicher Interpretationen des umstrittenen „Züchtigungsverses“ die Vielfalt und Methoden klassischer und zeitgenössischer Korangelehrter untersucht.
Nach einer kurzen Gegenüberstellung drei verschiedener Übersetzungen des thematisierten Verses, stelle ich den Verskommentar ÓabarÐs vor. Dieser soll exemplarisch für die „frühe“ Koranexegese den Aufbau und die Methoden klassischer Korankommentare herausstellen und Aufschluss über das damalige Koranverständnis geben. Zudem werden weitere klassische und mittelalterliche Verskommentare hinzugezogen, um dadurch methodische und inhaltliche Veränderungen innerhalb der Koranexegese zu verdeutlichen. Im darauffolgenden Teil steht das moderne Koranverständnis im Vordergrund, das am Beispiel der Verskommentare Sayyid Qutbs und Amina Waduds unterschiedliche Tendenzen innerhalb der modernen Koranexegese aufzeigen wird. Die Unterscheidung in „traditionell“ und „kritisch“ soll dabei nicht unterstellen, dass es sich bei den unterschiedlichen Korangelehrten um zwei klar voneinander abgrenzbare Gruppen deal with. Vielmehr folgt sie der eigenen Abgrenzung der Gelehrten untereinander und soll vor diesem Hintergrund unterstellte Unterschiede und mögliche Gemeinsamkeiten sowie gegenseitige Kritik genauer untersuchen. Der letzte Teil dieser Arbeit bietet einen Überblick über die gewonnenen Ergebnisse und präsentiert mögliche Schlussfolgerungen.

Demokratischer Staat und terroristische Herausforderung

Frankreich, vom Linksterrorismus nach 1968 weitgehend verschont, sah sich in den 1980er Jahren einer neuen terroristischen Bedrohung ausgesetzt. Eine Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Gruppen verübte Anschläge, darunter islamistisch motivierte Terroristen aus dem Nahen Osten. Auch wegen dieses neuen Terrorismus sahen sich die Franzosen schon früh mit Herausforderungen konfrontiert, die heute in ganz Europa eine zentrale Rolle spielen. Dazu gehören die wachsende Bedeutung der inneren Sicherheit im öffentlichen Diskurs, Debatten um Einwanderung, Integration und die Rolle des Islam sowie ein an Stärke gewinnender Rechtspopulismus. Markus Lammert untersucht eingehend, wie Frankreich während der 1980er Jahre sein eigenes Modell der Terrorismusbekämpfung entwickelte.

The Qur’an makes vast use of older spiritual fabric, tales, and traditions that predate the origins of Islam, and there has lengthy been a fierce debate approximately how this fabric discovered its manner into the Qur’an. This particular booklet argues that this debate has mostly been characterised via a failure to completely relish the Qur’an as a predominately oral product.

Combining ancient, linguistic, and statistical research, a lot of it made attainable for the 1st time because of new automated instruments built particularly for this e-book, Bannister argues that the results of orality have lengthy been neglected in reviews of the Qur’an. by way of moving the Islamic scripture firmly again into an oral context, one earnings either a clean appreciation of the Qur’an by itself phrases, in addition to a clean figuring out of ways Muhammad used early non secular traditions, retelling outdated stories afresh for a brand new audience.
