Throughout its history the Koran has presented problems of interpretation. Some scholars estimate that at least a quarter of the text is obscure in meaning, not only for Western translators but even native Arabic speakers, who struggle with the archaic vocabulary that is no longer used in modern Arabic. In this in-depth study of the language of the Koran, scholar Christoph Luxenberg dispels much of the mystery surrounding numerous hitherto unclear passages.

The key, as Luxenberg shows exhaustively, is to understand that Aramaic--the language of most Middle Eastern Jews and Christians of the pre-Islamic era--had a pervasive influence on the development of the Arabic text of the Koran. For a thousand years preceding the advent of Islam, Aramaic or Syriac as it was sometimes called was the lingua franca of many parts of the Near East.

It was the native language of the first Christian evangelists and the main liturgical language of the early Christian churches from Syria to Iran.

Based on this historical context and a profound knowledge of Semitic languages, Luxenberg clarifies many thorny textual puzzles. Perhaps his most interesting argument is that the passage often translated as referring to the "virgins" that are believed to greet the departed faithful in paradise was long ago misunderstood.

In fact, knowledge of ancient Christian hymns in Aramaic suggests that the word in question refers to "grapes" that the departed will enjoy in a paradisiacal garden. Luxenberg discusses many other similar fascinating instances where Aramaic vocabulary and concepts influenced the text of the Koran This highly erudite work makes a significant contribution to the study of the Koran and the history of Islamic origins.

Verified Purchase. Book is lost in details just trying to proof Quran has been change but it is not a Qurans new explanation it is just telling all ancient languages all technical details and not for a common reader to understand what book says. You need to be languages professor or something. Lost in Details no explanation what Quran really means only try to proof it has been change by telling words history.

So dissatisfied that book only says Quran have been change here is proof; that word bla bla words history. There is no new translation of a sura from the start to end. Yes a perfect book to understand the variations in Quran readings and therefore explanations of the verses. Definitely the Quran had repeated many stories from the old and new testaments.

Therefore the language of the Quran is very similar in many ways to Syriac and Aramaic. But this book is mainly suitable for scholars and people who know enough Arabic in order to be able to understand the material presented thoroughly.

Great product, received quickly. Brilliant research. However, it is important for the reader to know German, French, Arabic and Aramaic in order to benefit from it, since these languages are abundantly present.
