Definition of ‘Uloom al-Qur’aan

The know ledge of ‘uioom al-Qur’aan, or ‘The Sciences of the Qur’aa n’, deals with the knowledge of those sciences that have a direct bearing on the recitation, history. understanding and implementation of th e Qur’aan. It is, therefore, a vast field of Islaamic scholarship, and one th at is of primary importance.

Thus, for example, with regards to recitation, ‘uioom al-Qur’aan deals with the science of pronunciation (tajweed), th e different methodologies of reciting the Qur’aan (the qira’aat ), th e blessings of reciting the Qur’aan, and the etiquette of its recitation.

Therefore, to call this branch of Islamic knowledge ‘The Procedure and Methodology or Interpretation’  (‘Ulum Usool  at-Tafseer) instead  of ‘us00l al-Qur’aan would  not be  far from the truth.
