Abrogation and the Preservation of the Qur’an


This is my latest interview with Paul Williams on his excellent channel, Blogging Theology.

Any critique of abrogation (naskh) was always going to be received by the approval of some and the disapproval of others. Those who appreciate that this confusing and self-contradictory concept introduces serious, rather than solves, problems, would welcome a critical review. On the other hand, those who see the centuries-long history of abrogation as a reason to accept its veracity would consider any attempt to reject this doctrine to be misguided, if not devious.

I hope that you find the presentation useful, whatever your takeaway is.
