There is a lot of attention paid to the central religious text of Islam, the Qur’an, but how familiar are we with the many other writings and traditions of interpretation that surround the scripture? Our ministerial intern Sally Fritsche did her undergraduate research at Grinnell College on the topic of Islamic jurisprudence and Qur’anic interpretation. Join her for a conversation on some of the interesting history and traditions that have helped form the foundations of different Islamic beliefs and practices.
