80 things to understand one verse ?!


Part of my research thesis is to understand how Traditionalist Muslims approach the Quran. Of course Sunni Islam has a very sophisticated method. They call this method ‘3ulum al-quran’ (sciences of the Quran). They amount to 80 sub fields of study! So to understand one verse you need to knw 80 things! Of course these things are instrinsically unknowable (one of them is the Prophet’s MOOD for god’s sake) . This is how they block people from studying the Quran.
