By: Thameem Ushama’

Abstract

The ’Ulum al-Qur’an is a science that contributes to the proper understanding of the message of the Qur’an. Having gradually developed based on the earliest Islamic sources it serves as the primary guideline for
historical, technical, linguistic, stylistic, jurisprudential, interpretative and exegetical issues in the study of the Qur’an. Hence, this article presents a brief analysis of the origin and development of the ’Ulum during the era of the Companions, the Successors, and the Followers of Successors. It also takes stock of the works and evaluates the Muslim scholarship in the field. In addition, it explores the development and codification of various intra-related branches of the ’Ulum and highlights the contemporary Muslim contributions to this science.
