I will be giving the third Abdullah Yusuf Ali Memorial Lecture, which is organized by the Islamic Book Trust (IBT). The lecture will be at the Conference Hall, the International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies (IAIS), Jalan Elmu, off Jalan Universiti, Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is on 16th of February 2013, 3.00 pm. The lecture is open to the public but priori registration is required. Registration is free. This is the registration page on the organizer’s website. For more information about the event, please visit the lecture page on the IBT website.
The event will also witness the launch by IBT of a paperback edition of my book Abrogation in the Qur’an and Islamic Law: A Critical Study of the Concept of “Naskh” and its Impact. I have therefore chosen for the lecture a topic related to this book: “Is the Mushaf a complete record of the Qur’an? The controversy of abrogation.” A summary of the lecture is available here on my website.
