Shaltūt and Tafsīr Mawḍū‘ī

(p.150) 8 Shaltūt and Tafsīr Mawḍū‘ī
Maḥmūd Shalt=ut and Islamic Modernism


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the tafsīr of Maḥmūd Shaltūt. The prominent elements of his tafsīr are the emphasis of the thematic approach and the organic unity of the Qur'ān. Shaltūt's tafsīr deals with the Qur'ān sūra by sūra and not verse by verse. He believed that the tafsīr mawduū'ī is the ideal form of the tafsīr and that the verse-by-verse style has contributed to the areas of conflict within tafsīr and has made it easy for those with a particular bias to interpret the verse in their own way.

Keywords:   tafsīr, Maḥmūd Shaltūt, Quar'anic exegesis, sūra, tafsīr mawduū'ī
