Book Review: Jonathan A.C. Brown’s ‘Misquoting Muhammad: The Challenge and Choices of Interpreting the Prophet’s Legacy’
By Mohammed Mishad K
The book carries out an in-depth analysis of the scriptural hermeneutics in Sunni Muslim juristic thoughts. While elaborating on the interrelated issues, however, Brown stays true to his promise not to provide solutions for those issues and challenges that the Muslims are baffled with. Nevertheless, it introduces the readers to various perspectives regarding the subjects the book discusses about, leaving themselves as deciders of the conclusions.
