Tafsīr in the Modern Period and the Risale-i Nur Collection

  • Hakan Çoruh
Part of the Palgrave Series in Islamic Theology, Law, and History book series (ITLH)


This chapter investigates approaches to the Qur’an and tafsır in early Muslim modernism, the main figures of this period such as S Ahmad Khan and Muhammad ʿAbduh, and the characteristic features of modern exegesis. Later on, the chapter discusses Nursi’s definition of his collection and the place of the Risale-i Nur collection in Islamic disciplines, particularly in the discipline of tafsır. Through this analysis, the chapter provides supporting evidence of the argument of this book.
