The Belief of Nubuwwah in Jahiliyyah Arabs: A Study Based on Qur'an
MetadataShow full item record
In the academic research of theology, the concept of prophethood, attributed to the Arabs of the Jahiliyyah period, is quite vague; only relating to the other religions of the community and a remembrance of the life of Hazrat Ibrahim. Their viewpoint in this matter is also a remnant of the past cultures and traditions of prophethood and revelation. In our opinion, this is an incomplete assessment of the subject. In the light of the Quranic revelations, it is quite evident that people of the Jahiliyyah period strongly believed in the coming of a prophet from within their ranks which sits beyond having a clear concept of prophethood. In this research, we will defend the notion that Arabs of the Jahiliyyah period had a strong concept of prophethood which would act as a justification for this thesis.
