Revisiting the Collection and Transmission History of the Qur’an
This is a multi lecture series by Dr Shehzad Saleem, Fellow Al-Mawrid, for serious students of the Qur'an. It is based on his fifteen year research in which he has revisited some intriguing areas of the collection and transmission history of the Qur’an. He has attempted to critically evaluate the traditional narratives and accounts and tried to re-construct the history of the Qur’an on the basis of established historical sources.
This multi lecture series comprises 20 topics and each topic is divided into various episodes. These lectures will be periodically released episode-wise.
A Narrative on the Placement of Surah Anfal (8) and Surah Tawbah (9) - Episode 01
A narrative informs us that ‘Uthman (rta) exercised his own judgement in placing Surah Anfal (8) and Surah Tawbah (9) together when the Qur’an was written in his times; since he had no guidance regarding this from the Prophet (sws), he considered them to be a single surah because of similarity of the topics of both surahs. In this episode, Dr Shehzad Saleem critically analyzes the text and chain of narration of this narrative.
