Exploring the subjectivity of the Qur??n?s meaning in the world, this book analyses Qur??nic referencing in Muslim political rhetoric.

Muslims have always used verses from the Qur'an to support opinions on law, theology, or life in general, but almost no attention has been paid to how the Qur'an presents its own precepts as conclusions proceeding from reasoned arguments.
