Coherence in the Quran By Ḥamīduddīn Farāhī
Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi, Cambridge Islamic College, UK
“Maulana Hamiduddin Farahi (d. 1930) devoted most of his life to study the Qur’an. An erudite scholar, Farahi commanded knowledge of a number of languages, among them Hebrew and English. Among his books are: Mufradat al Quran (Vocabulary of the Quran), Asalib al Quran (Style of the Quran), Jamharat al-Balaghah (Manual of Quranic Rhetoric) and Iman fi Aqsam il Qur’an (Study of the Quranic Oaths).
Farahi’s main contribution in the field of Qur’anic studies has been the development of the theory of Niẓām i.e. thematic unity – every chapter of the Qurʾān has a specific theme around which all elements of the chapter are woven. According to the concept of niẓām, the Qur’an being coherent means that it has an overall theme (and) each chapter has a theme. The whole book and every chapter of it are connected in how they present those themes. In other words, niẓām refers to the order of the Qurʾān, and the sequence of its arguments and statements, in relation to the theme of the whole Qurʾān, then to the order of different groups of chapters, then the order of elements within each sūrah in each group.”
