Neo-Traditional Salafi Qur'An-Sunnah Hermeneutic and the Construction of a Normative Muslimah Image
Hawwa (2007)
Abstract

The aim of this article is to outline and analyse the delineating featuresof the Neo-Traditional Salafi model of interpreting Qur’an and Sunnah indicants and the interpretational implications of this model in relationto constructing a “normative” concept of a Muslimah (model for a Muslimwoman). The author argues that the NTS interpretational model is basedon a range of epistemological and methodological assumptions pertaining to the conceptualisation and interpretation of the nature and the scopeof the Qur’an and Sunnah.
