MetadataShow full item record
During classical period, medieval, modern, and until nowadays, the Qur’anic interpretation has a different methodology. One of the figures that can be classified into contemporary Qur’anic exegete is Muhammad Abid al-Jabiri. According to al-Jabiri’s view, one of the problems of interpretation is it bound to previous interpretation without attempting to find the deepest meaning of the Qur’an. The implication is, repeating the previous interpretation, does not give the new meaning and unable to answer the problem. This paper tries to analyze the methodology of interpretation. The analysis showed that al-Jabiri seemed to responds Muhammad Shahrur’s view. Al-Jabiri introduces the principle of making Qur’an contemporary for itself and for the readers. The result can be used as a reference of interpretation methodology in finding solutions of human problems.
