This volume is a "sampling" of the works of 18 living poets whom the author knew in Lahore, Pakistan between 1959 and 1962, and whom he considers to be representative of the style and quality of the "gazel" genre. Each selection appears in Urdu (Arabic script), with its English translation, and explanatory notes. The Introduction contains brief biographical descriptions of the poets. Appendix One discusses Urdu poetics--(1) the types of poetic composition, (2) rhyme, (3) scansion, (4) measure and meter, (5) catalexis, and (6) an analysis of the meters used in the text. The appended Vocabulary is presented in Urdu and phonemic transcription, with English glosses. The authors suggest that this volume may be used by students on the second year level who have finished "a Course in Urdu." (See ed 013 435-7.) Two other works in the Urdu language, forthcoming from the same project at the Institute of Islamic Studies at McGill University, are "An Urdu Newspaper Reader" and "An Urdu Newspaper Wordcount."

Modern Muslim intellectuals and the Qurʼan( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines Muslim intellectuals from the Arab world, Iran, Turkey, Indonesia, Pakistan, the USA, and Europe who employ contemporary critical methods to interpret the Qur`an, arriving at conclusions that challenge those of the past. It offers a framework for understanding their work and responses to this among Muslim and Non-Muslim audiences, and illustrates the diverse struggles in which they recruit the Qur`an, read through the lens of their modernist or post-modernist positions. Pointing to the emergence of a new trend in Muslim interpretation characterised by direct engagement with the word of God and the embrace of intellectual modernity in the context of an increasingly globalized world, it presents and analyses for the first time a representative selection of its voices, methods, and conclusions

Scripture, poetry, and the making of a community : reading the Qurʼan as a literary text by Angelika Neuwirth( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. -- provided by publisher
