The Institute of Ismaili Studies – Shi‘i Ismaili Interpretations of the Holy Qur’an

Professor Azim Nanji

This is an edited version of an article that first appeared in Selected Proceedings of the International Congress for the Study of the Qur’an, 1980, pp.39-49

Given the whole spectrum of views that have developed throughout Ismaili history, it is not easy to define any one of these as representing an exclusive form of Ismaili interpretation. Focusing on the Fatimid period, this article attempts to develop a basis for understanding Shi’i Ismaili interpretations of the Holy Qur’an.

  1. Nice post ISMAILIMAIL!! This article by Dr Azim Nanji shows how cosmologist-philosopher-theologians like Al Sijistani, Nasir Khusraw and As Shirazi, among others, drove the intellectual agenda during this period of Ismaili history(under the guidance of their respective Imams naturally).
