Abstract Share this page

The Qur’an has always been a medium through and upon which Islam and the Muslim faith are structured and built. It mediates the relationship between Muslims and God. Despite its alleged divine origin, the Qur’an as a scriptural and textual reality remains to be understood by Muslims. Many theories and principles have been developed out of the long Qur’anic interpretive tradition to address the Muslims’ theological and legal needs. One of the most interesting, yet controversial, exegetical legal theories is the theory of naskh, a theory stipulating the abrogation of a verse of the Qur’an by another.
