Abstract

Literary approach to the Quran developed by al-Khuli created deep critiques from its opponents, in whose opinion, the usage of literary paradigm to the study of the Qur’an, according to them, implied a consequence of treating the Qur’an as a human text which clearly indicates a strong influence of a liberal mode of thinking that goes out of the line of the Qur’an’s spirit. This article shows a diametric fact compared to that they have claimed. The data proves that linguistic aspects of the Qur’an have succeeded in making an intellectual connection among progressive and liberal scholars in the classical and modern era. This supports the assumption that progressive and liberal thought whose one of its indicators is freedom of thought in accordance to Charles Kurzman term, is “children” of the Islamic civilization. Freedom of thought in the classical Islamic scholarship should be the élan of intellectualism including the field of Quranic studies.

Abstract

Dalam tradisi Sunni, perbincangan tentang sejarah teks al-Quran nyaris tidak menimbulkan gejolak yang berarti, mengingat historiografi dan tradisi periwayatan dalam sekte ini tidak menimbulkan persoalan serius, alias telah diresepsi sebagai sesuatu yang taken for granted. Sementara, hal yang sama tidak terjadi dalam sekte lain, khususnya Syi‘ah, bahkan keberadaan mushaf ‘Uthmānī masih tidak lepas dari kritik otentisitas serta banyak kecurigaan terhadap peran khalifah ‘Uthma>n dalam penyeragaman mushaf, meskipun sampai sekarang ini masih berlaku di mayoritas dunia muslim.
