About this item

The largely Arabo-centric approach to the academic study of tafsir has resulted in a lack of literature exploring the diversity of Qur’anic interpretation in some other areas of the Muslim-majority world.

The essays in The Qur'an in the Malay-Indonesian World help to resolve this, aiming to expand our knowledge of tafsir and its history in the Malay-Indonesian world. This volume represents unity in diversity in striking ways. Scholars involved come from diverse Muslim and non-Muslim backgrounds, western and non-western origins, and are writing on various scholarly disciplines: history, theology, politics and society. Yet the various chapters are bound into a coherent unit by their common consideration of Islam’s most sacred text, the Qur’an, with particular reference to its scholarly and popular interpretation in Southeast Asia. The book thus constitutes a mosaic that is addressing an issue of great currency in today’s world.

Presenting new examinations of an under-researched topic, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of Islamic Studies and Southeast Asian Studies.
