Discusses philosopher Mullā: Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s commentary on the opening chapter of the Qur'ā:n.

This book investigates the convergence of philosophy, scriptural exegesis, and mysticism in the thought of the celebrated Islamic philosopher Mullā: Ṣ:adrā: (d. 1050/1640). Through a careful presentation of the theoretical and practical dimensions of Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s Qur'ā:nic hermeneutics, Mohammed Rustom highlights the manner in which Ṣ:adrā: offers a penetrating metaphysical commentary upon the Fā:tiḥ:a, the chapter of the Qur'ā:n that occupies central importance in Muslim daily life. Engaging such medieval intellectual giants as Fakhr al-Dī:n al-Rā:zī: (d. 606/1210) and Ibn 'Arabī: (d. 638/1240) on the one hand, and the wider disciplines of philosophy, theology, Sufism, and Qur'ā:nic exegesis on the other, Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s commentary upon the Fā:tiḥ:a provides him with the opportunity to modify and recast many of his philosophical positions within a scripture-based framework. He thereby reveals himself to be a profound religious thinker who, among other things, argues for the salvation of all human beings in the afterlife.

ldquo:Informed, informative, and a superb example of seminal scholarship, The Triumph of Mercy is a highly recommended and core addition to academic library Islamic Studies and Philosophy Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists. rdquo: mdash: Midwest Book Review

ldquo:By focusing on Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s commentary on the Qur'ā:n rsquo:s opening chapter, Rustom shows how the great Iranian thinker created an original Qur'ā:nic hermeneutics as well as a new ontology of the Qur'ā:n. Rustom rsquo:s book is a groundbreaking and richly detailed study of the way that Ṣ:adrā: both appropriated and transcended the Islamic traditions of theology, mysticism, philosophy, and scriptural exegesis. rdquo: mdash: Robert Wisnovsky, author of Avicenna rsquo:s Metaphysics in Context

ldquo:Mohammed Rustom has opened the door to a remarkable philosophical exegesis of the Qur'ā:n in this pathbreaking study of the outstanding Iranian thinker of the seventeenth century, Mullā: Ṣ:adrā:. In the process, he clarifies the profound connections between philosophy, Sufism, and Islamic theology in Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s work. This absorbing study will be welcomed by anyone interested in the fundamental question of how reason interacts with revelation. rdquo: mdash: Carl W. Ernst, author of How to Read the Qur'ā:n: A New Guide, with Select Translations

ldquo:This first book-length survey of Mullā: Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s Qur'ā:nic commentaries is a major contribution to the study of this seventeenth-century Muslim philosopher and to the field of philosophical exegesis in Islam. Mohammed Rustom presents Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s vision for the unity of the lsquo:intellectual rsquo: and lsquo:transmitted rsquo: sciences and gives us a complete picture of a first-rate thinker contemplating upon the Qur'ā:n. He does an excellent job of contextualizing Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s Qur'ā:nic hermeneutics within the framework of his lsquo:Transcendent Wisdom rsquo: and shows how scriptural reasoning complements philosophical vision. Based on an in-depth reading and translation of Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s key texts on Qur'ā:nic exegesis, the book examines a much-neglected aspect of Ṣ:adrā: rsquo:s thought and introduces the reader to the rich philosophical tapestry of the Islamic intellectual tradition. rdquo: mdash: Ibrahim Kalin, author of Knowledge in Later Islamic Philosophy: Mullā: Ṣ:adrā: on Existence, Intellect, and Intuition
