Online Seminar with Professor Aun Hassan Ali

Join Professor Aun Hasan Ali for a virtual seminar on the relationship between the Qur'an and Hadith in Shi'i Islamic thought. Professor Ali will examine Imāmī discussions of classical literary theory as a critique of the belief in the so-called “primacy” of the Qur'an, and will argue that these discussions offer Muslims a useful approach to textuality because they preserve the sacredness of the Qur'an and the value of exegetical history.
