Presentation

Through extensive textual analysis, this book reveals how many passages of the Qur’an define death and resurrection spiritually or metaphorically.

While the Day of Resurrection is a major theme of the Qur’an, resurrection has largely been interpreted as physical, which is defined as bones leaving their graves. However, this book shows how the Qur’an alludes to death and resurrection in a very metaphoric manner – for example, rebuilding a desolate town, typically identified as Jerusalem, and bringing the Israelite exiles back. At other times, the Qur’an speaks of non-believers as spiritually dead, those who live in this world, but are otherwise zombies.

The author presents an innovative theory of interpretation, contextualizing the Qur’an within Late Antiquity and traces the Qur’anic passages back to their Biblical, extra-biblical, and rabbinic subtexts and traditions
