    Van Putten is sarcastically refuting Kerr, ignoring willingly or unwillingly that the hima inscription is attributed to northern arabs.


    Yes.

    Quote
    About the "mentality" of the christian arabs before islam, what may be a good source to understand it?


    Scarce allusions of the Roman literature about the Roman and Persians Arabs during the Persian-Roman war.

    Quote
    About the dating of the surah, what may suggest an earlier dating than the tradition? Even if we set aside the narrative, what may suggest that the surah were initially composed second half of 6th century?


    The centrality of the apocalyptical dimension. Middle of the 6th c. is the time of the catastrophes: plague and climate.

    1  Strict Islamic traditionalists accuse Islamic liberals like myself for replacing divine truths with human norms.

    But our argument is that the Islamic tradition is already filled with human norms: Umayyad manipulations, Abbasid dictates, patriarchal cultures, pre-modern contexts.

    Quote
    Join me on this new series as I sit with experts to discuss resources, tools, and other important questions across various sub-fields in Islamic Studies.

    I'm joined today by Dr. Hythem Sidky, Executive Director of the International Quranic Studies Association, who will be talking to us about Quranic manuscripts. What are some important manuscript collections? How do we find and use manuscripts? What are some important scripts we see in early Quranic manuscripts?  What are some important markers we see in Quranic manuscripts? How do we date manuscripts and what are some major methodological issues with various dating methods? And more!

    I believe the translation that he is referring to is, The Qur'an: A New Annotated Translation, by A. J. Droge.  I find it very objective, impartial, accessible and useful as a study Qur'an and would use it if I were to teach, say a high school or college course on Islam.

    hello Mubashshir888., welcome to den and that is your first post?  For some reason i fell that you are reading the forum for a long time without joining in it., and  thanks for for the post that clears my problem of understanding  Reynold's words about his selective Quran.,

    I am curious when there are so many translated Qurans why you and Reynold   prefer that Arthur Droge's translation   

    you may find it   objective, impartial, accessible and useful as a study Qur'an  but i find it THAT HE IS DISMISSING THE  CLAIMS OF TRADITIONAL ISLAMC SCOHOLRAS ., and in fact his questions on Quran  are very critical of Quran being word of Allah/God...

    anyways   thank you again welcome to the forum

    Who was Muhammad, where did he come from and what was the historical context for his life? Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook discuss one of the most influential religious, social, and political leaders in history.

    About  the existence of 'Muhammad' I don't see how it could be otherwise that Holland be a great Believer. If it was not, he would be dead.
    Holland is right to point out Zubayr: I (many times) said here: The (Iraqi) Zubayr family are the key men of the emergence of the Quran and the prophetic figure to which the quranic texts adresses, they believed that this figure:
    1/ has existed meaning that the Biblical God (who is speaking in the texts) addresses in Arabic to someone ('you' in the texts) is a 'Prophet'. They claimed to hold his 'place' in the desert: they are the first and they are from the East, not from Damascus/Jerusalem.
    2/ They never see this figure, they never knew him. This figure and his story are their intellectual construction from the quranic texts they were the sole to have. It has permitted  them to rally people against Damascus (Malik).

    Altara - are you arguing here that the quranic texts would not have been in circulation in Damascus/Jerusalem in the early conquest period? (in say the first few decades)
  • Qur'anic studies today
     Reply #10393 - September 14, 2021, 12:33 PM

    Yes.
    I edit and add that it does not mean that there was nothing from the ideas of the Quran in Syria between 636-692 , but clearly there is nothing which attests of the circulation of quranic texts in the West before 692, i.e before the defeat of Zubayr.

    Interesting.

    If we take, for example, an early manuscript such as the Sanaa palimpsest (which seems to be accepted as dating from the mid-7th century) do you think that it would have arrived in Sanaa soon after it was produced or is it something that could have ended up there many years later?

      zeca statements are possible only

    1) you prove Sana ARABIC MANUSCRIPT/S are different from the present book and is published after YOUR YEAR OF ISLAM  692..(??)

    2). You Prove or agree  that there were Arabic written manuscripts way before Islam begin.. that means before ..much before "This Muhammad " Character /story  of classical Islam was born ... that is 29th August ...570 ...  AND THOSE ARABIC MANSUCRIPTS/ STORIES  WERE DIFFERENT FROM PRESENT BOOK QURAN.,  damn we know exact date of birth of prophet

    We do not have any dates about the Sana palimpsest manuscripts. All discussions are conjectures. So both propositions are possible because nothing is provable. In fact all is possible, since we have no dates and when Zeca says about   Sana palimpsest: "( which seems to be accepted as dating from the mid-7th century)" it is a conjecture, nothing else.

    This manuscript has been dated (C14) numerous times. It is clearly from first half of 7th C. Making it later is absolutely not tenable based on the material evidence.

    "If your argument is correct that the gospels were produced within highly literate elite circles, what becomes of the gospels as sources for early Christian history?"

    I consider that the quranic texts are the product of a 'highly literate elite circles', towards a target which was not at all the people of a 'great city of commerce' populated by idolaters, pagans, etc. City which have nerver existed, nor big or small where is 'Kaba/Mecca/ZamZam' today.

    "We need to ask: what do we know about authorship practices and what do we think their objectives might have been as intellectual elite cultural producers?"

    The question should be applied to the quranic texts. I have (of course...) certain responses to these questions. Responses (setting aside the frame Mecca/Abu Bakr/Kaba) grounded by historical sources which recount historical events which explain (for me...) the reason of the existence of the quranic texts. All has an explication.

    "Theoretically, you don’t need a religious “community” to describe that work historically; you just need texts and authors. "

    That's correct.

    Robyn: That is an excellent book that I teach often. The work of Stan Stowers and Bill Arnal’s Symbolic Jesus were also formative for me, along with Sue Marchand’s work on German Romanticism; her German Orientalism in the Age of Empire is basically the book I wish I could have written. I really recommend those works to our colleagues in order to think more about these issues and I hope someday to write something as useful.


    well The lady Prof .. should work on another book and I suggest that book name    should be  "SYMBOLIC MOSES" and Jewish   Romanticism
