Therefore, this journal is designed to serve as a platform to identify the various religious and social dimensions of knowledge, such as considering the Holy Quran as the foremost and fundamental source of Islamic rules followed by the Sunah (biography of the Prophet Mohammed Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) that explains and clarifies the Holy Quran, along with its affiliated Sharia studies on the individual and society, such as studies concerned with Ijtihad which focuses on the studying of modern issues and finding solutions to them.


The effort to understand the Qur'an has been the focus among Muslims and non-Muslims since ancient times. Traditional interpretations of the Quran are of great importance and vital for understanding the meaning. However, these traditional interpretations need to be revised accurately, reviewed, updated and not just remain the only interpretations available. Because the Quran was revealed to be immortal, the final messages within it must continue to convey meanings for every time and place without becoming obsolete. Innovators believe that the curriculum adopted in the interpretation of the Qur’an no longer produces the interpretation, but a repeat of what was said before, so those interpretations are no longer viable in modern times that continue to change. According to the Conservatives, the use of contemporary interpretations such as linguistic tools produces linguistic dimensions, but the actual applications were not a scientific practice, because of the backgrounds of those in charge of them. Therefore, this study aims to establish a practical approach between traditional interpretations and contemporary linguistic studies, through descriptive and analytical methods. The findings revealed the need to renew the Qur’anic studies curriculum and enriching them in the light of contemporary scientific methods. We must distinguish between "contemporary reading" as a modern scientific approach, and the ideological applications. This study postulates the adoption of a combination of Naqli and Aqli approach to revive a renewed understanding of the Qur’an.
