Intruder, genuine & original, Interpretation of Know-How (Ijtihad)


Abstract: There is no doubt that the Qur’an is preserved from distortion and alteration. Because Almighty Allah pledged to protect it. In addition, among the measures of preservation one is to preserve its interpretation. However, the Tafsir books have filled with many types of additional Tafsir from other sources, which resulted in many irregular, anomalous and far away sayings in the perspective of content. Herein lies the research problem. The aim of research is to find methods to reveal the intruder in the Tafsir al-dirayah (kind of interpretation) and to indicate practical steps that would be taken by those who want to work in screening and refining the interpretations from the intruder in them with the help of the descriptive analytical method. It emerged from the results that the intruder in the Tafsir al-dirayah could not be limited. Rather, it is extracted according to methods and rules, the best of which are by extrapolating the meanings of the words of the Noble Qur’an in linguistic books and the books specialized in the meanings of the Qur’an. Then to consider the context and concerning the circumstances of revelation. In addition, that behind many of the intruding material are enemies of Islam, stray sects, centers of Orientalism and cultural organizations that have distorted the rulings of the Qur’an on the pretext of renewal. It also resulted from the study that the types of intruder in exegesis from the point of view of Tafsir al-dirayah are all due to the interpretation of the Qur’an without knowing and familiarity with the condition of the interpreter. Knowing the author’s approach to interpretation and his affiliation with a group of sects facilitates the task of searching for the intruder in his book for knowledge of the deviations of his group and his doctrine. Moreover, that the strangeness by transmitting a saying that is only known from his side is likely because it is an outsider in the interpretation.
