ISLAMIC NUANCES: ONLINE KNOWLEDGE FOR SEEKERS
Islamic Nuances are online lectures for individuals seeking to dig a bit deeper into the depths of various Islamic Studies topics.
We are happy to present our fourth lecture:
The Imprint of Linguistic Ambiguity on Islamic Legal Rulings
The religion of Islam that Muslims commit to is a divine code that guides us to eternal and abiding happiness. What we have come to know of this code is a result of a sophisticated tradition of engagement with the Divine opening of revelation. Since revelation is firstly language in the Qur’anic and Sunnic sense, understandings and interpretations of language have coloured Muslim scholars’ engagement with these primary texts. Join us in this short lecture to explore the phenomenon of linguistic ambiguity and its imprint on Islamic legal rulings.
Our presenter Abdul Hadi Shah-Idil, is the Arabic Course Director and lecturer at Centre for Islamic Studies and Civilisation (CISAC) at CSU. Abdul Hadi has a passion for Arabic & Fiqh Studies.
