"Der Koran ist göttlich, seine Interpretationen jedoch sind Menschenwerke"
Sprache der Verständigung – Verständlichkeit des Koran
It seems that the language of the sacred text of the Qur'ân is more useful for communication than for understanding. The distinguishing characteristics of the oral and written forms that can be seen in qur'ânic texts show us that the texts of the Qur'ân have different and divergent medialities. Muslim religious communities are subject to traditions and rituals but also create religious identities which refer to the sacred texts of the Qur'ân, but which also are positioned within the global and medial challenges confronting 'societies in motion'. The Arabic language is closely linked with the Qur'ân in its written form and as such is ambiguous in its construction. One perspective for religious muslim communities in the process of renewal could be a (new) theory of ambiguity.
