  • Patterns in the history of the commentation on the so-called
           ḥadīth Ibn Masʿūd

    • Authors: Thomas Eich
      Abstract: This paper analyzes the so-called Ibn Masʿūd ḥadīth (see below) on two levels: the specific wording of the ḥadīth on the one hand and a significant portion of the commentation written about it since the 10th century until today on the other. This aims at three things. First, I will show how the ḥadīth’s exact wording still developed after the stabilization of the material in collections. Although this development occurred only on the level of single words, it can be shown that it is a reflection of discussions documented in the commentaries. Therefore, these specific examples show that there was not always a clear line separating between ḥadīth text and commentaries on that text. Second, the diachronic analysis of the commentaries will provide material for a nuanced assessment in how far major icons of commentation such as Nawawī and Ibn Ḥajar al-ʿAsqalānī significantly influenced following generations in composing their respective commentaries. Third, I will argue that in the specific case study provided here significant changes in the commentation can be witnessed since the second half of the 19th century which are caused by the spread of basic common medical knowledge in that period.

  • Espaces et identités transformés / transformants: L’entre-deux dans

    • Authors: Laurence Denooz
      Abstract: Résumé: Au croisement de la sémiotique des passions de Greimas et Baroni, de la théorie de la configuration appliquée par Paul Ricoeur à la temporalité et de l’écogenèse territoriale de Claude Raffestin, l’analyse narratologique de Fī l-ṭufūla vise à démontrer que l’espace dans lequel s’inscrivent les souvenirs du narrateur est un acteur de la construction identitaire du petit protagoniste entre deux cultures et, réciproquement, subit l’action de reconfiguration et de recomposition mise en oeuvre par les souvenirs des sentiments qu’ils évoquent encore en l’adulte qu’il est devenu. : Based on the semiotics of passions (Greimas and Baroni), the theory of configuration (Paul Ricoeur) and territorial ecogonenesis (Claude Raffestin), the narratological analysis of Fī l-ṭufūla strives to demonstrate that the space of memories of narrator is an actor in the identity construction of the protagonist between two cultures and, conversely, undergoes the action of reconfiguration and recomposition implemented by the memory of the feelings of the protagonist.

  • The Founding of Damascus University 1903-1936: An essay in praise of the

    • Authors: Sami Moubayed
      Abstract: Damascus University, a pioneer in Levantine academia, has generally been ignored by Syriatologists and historians. Its story speaks volumes about the founding fathers of the Syrian Republic, however, and the anti-colonial movement under French Mandate rule. This article looks its the founding yea8rs under Ottoman times and ends with the tenure of its founder and first president Riḍà Saʿīd. Given that collapse of higher education in Syria at present, because of the current war, it is imperative to look back and see how Syrian academics emerged from times of war to revamp their university after the turmoil of World War I and French occupation. Present academics might find inspiration and a roadmap for the future in looking at the university’s past and the deeds of its founders.

  • Die Grenzen der Grammatiker: der Streit um die kanonischen Lesarten des
           Koranverses قَالُوٓاْ إِنْ هَٰذَانِ
           لَسَٰحِرَانِ qālū ʾin hāḏāni la-sāḥirāni, Sure 20
           (Ṭāhā), Vers 63

    • Authors: Salah Ata Fakhry
      Abstract: This paper investigates the attitudes of different schools of Arab grammarians towards the passage in sūra 20, ʾin hāḏāni la-sāḥirāni (as such in the Cairene textus receptus). Analyzing the approach to the different qirāʾāt (readings) of this passage, three lines of argument emerge: (i) one group of grammarians dismissed any qirāʾāt that did not conform to their own grammatical opinions; (ii) a second group of grammarians cautiously adduced various qirāʾāt as evidence for their own grammatical opinions; (iii) a third group of grammarians assigns a grammatical key value to a qirāʾa with an authentic ʾisnād and argues that such qirāʾāt do not need further argumentative support.

  • A book burner or not' History and myth: Revisiting al-Qāḍī
           ʿIyāḍ and the controversies over al-Ghazālī in the Islamic West

    • Authors: Nora S. Eggen
      Abstract: A number of scholars in the medieval Islamic West engaged with the work of Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī (d. 505/1111), and he was both celebrated and criticised. Among the scholars who are allotted with a prominent role in the controversies around his work, is the Ceutan judge and scholar al-Qāḍī ʿIyāḍ (d. 544/1149). To some extent, his role in the controversies which allegedly resulted in the burning of some of al-Ghazālī’s books, has become a significant element in ʿIyāḍ’s intellectual and historical biography and in construing him as a somewhat fanatic defender of a particular scholarly tradition, the Mālikī tradition, and a particular political order, the Almoravid dynasty. Although ʿIyāḍ’s own writings clearly position him within the Mālikī scholarly tradition and although historical evidence clearly suggests that he sided with the Almoravids in the Almoravid–Almohad conflict of the early twelfth century, the image of a fierce fanatic and a book burner seems to stem from a later date. The earliest traceable source for this image is an anecdote in al-Shaʿrānī’s (d. 973/1565) Lawāqiḥ al-anwār. In other, later sources additional and partly different images of ʿIyāḍ are construed, motivated by the controversies over al-Ghazālī. However the basis for these images is likewise neither to be found in ʿIyāḍ’s own work nor in available historical sources earlier than al-Shaʿrānī.

  • Fact or Fiction' In Search of the "Learned Council" of Jirmānūs

    • Authors: Anthony Edwards
      Abstract: The “learned council” of Jirmānūs Farḥāt (1670-1732) often surfaces as illustrative of ecumenical humanism in the Levant in the century leading up to the Arab Nahḍa (Renaissance). Primary information about the group however is essentially nonexistent, prompting the regurgitation of facts culled from a discrete number of early 20th -century researches on Farḥāt and his colleagues. This essay puts the historical existence of Farḥāt’s “learned council” on trial and argues that it never existed; nonetheless, its historiographical existence is undeniable. Based on a lexicographical study of the Arabic phrase “learned council (majmaʿ ʿilmī)” and a meticulous review of extant scholarship on the group, I claim that the 18th -century group was conjured into existence in the 20th century. I contend that Catholic Maronite scholars invented Farḥāt’s “learned council” in order to insert their confessional community into a crystalizing Protestantdriven narrative of the Nahḍa, which then Western historians reinterpreted as evidence of Arab Christian literary activity more broadly. This essay provides an example of dialectical historiography and calls for the careful reevaluation of some “facts” that have infiltrated Nahḍa Studies.Keywords: Farḥāt, learned council, majmaʿ, Nahḍa, historiography

  • Non-canonical Arabic Detective Fiction: The Beginnings of the Genre

    • Authors: Basilus Bawardi, Alif Faranesh
      Abstract: The focus of this paper is Arabic detective fiction, which began in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, thanks to the broad-scope enterprise of translations, and the subsequent development of an authentic Arabic detective literature in the early 1960s. This paper traces diachronically the emergence of this popular genre at an entirely non-canonical level, in Egypt in particular, and examines its thematic characteristics. The paper also examines the causes of the lack of canonical detective literature until the early 1980s. It argues that Arabic detective literature, canonical and non-canonical alike, is a true reflection of the power relations and the social, political and cultural struggles in the Arab world. It further claims that Arabic detective literature is one of the most important literary strata in modern Arab literature, through which we can clearly discern changes in values and esthetics in modern Arab society, and examine the relations between money and ruling power in Egypt as a mirror of the entire Arab world and the connection between literature, preservation and the undermining of Arab law and social order.Key words: Non-canonical Arabic detective writing, Arabic popular literature, Detective fiction, Crime fiction.

  • Le soufisme New Age des salles de yoga

    • Authors: Dalia Chams
      Abstract: In trendy yoga studios, a new type of Sufism practice is flourishing in Egypt, that we can call New Age Sufism. It’s merging traditional Sufi practices as ḏikr, with Zen meditation and yoga breathing techniques. People who attend this kind of sessions are more or less highly ranked; they are looking for another way to reach serenity and inner peace, to avoid post-revolution stress.
      This paper aims to analyse this kind of practice by first describing a Sufi meditation session, in order to explain how it creates a new type of Sufism New Age, more universal and not linked to a religion in particular. Then, it sheds light on the target group this neo-Sufism is attracting and the reasons behind these practises. At the end, the paper emphasises other related aspects of this phenomenon in the cultural field.

  • Ibn Taymiyya on the Incoherence of the Theologians’ Universal Law:
           Reframing the Debate between Reason and Revelation in Medieval Islam

    • Authors: Carl Sharif El-Tobgui
      Abstract: This article analyzes the overarching themes and goals of Ibn Taymiyya’s roughly forty arguments against the philosophers’ and theologians’ “Universal Law” for the figurative interpretation of scripture, to which he dedicates approximately 500 pages of his 10-volume Darʾ taʿāruḍ al-ʿaql wa’l-naql. While Ibn Taymiyya himself presents these arguments in a disjointed and seemingly random fashion, this study demonstrates that by carefully breaking down, regrouping, and reconstructing them, we can discern a coherent attempt on Ibn Taymiyya’s part to reconfigure the very terms of the debate between reason and revelation in medieval Islam in several important ways. Firstly, he deconstructs what it means for reason to “ground” our knowledge of revelation. Next, he redefines the opposition at stake not as one of “reason vs. revelation,” but as a purely epistemological question of certainty vs. conjecture, with both reason and revelation serving as potential sources of both kinds of knowledge. Finally, he builds on this insight to replace the dichotomy “sharʿī-ʿaqlī,” in the sense of “revelational vs. rational,” with the dichotomy “sharʿī-bidʿī” in the sense of “scripturally validated vs. scripturally non-validated,” arguing that revelation itself both commends and exemplifies the valid use of reason and rational argumentation. By this move, Ibn Taymiyya attempts to introduce a new paradigm in which it is the epistemic quality of a piece of knowledge alone that counts, simultaneously subsuming reason itself into the larger category of “sharʿī,” or revelationally validated, sources of knowledge.
