Scriptural studies are central to the understanding of religions that have scriptures at their heart. These are pieces of sacred literature which provide information, guidance and directions for and about the religions and their adherents. This is certainly true about the Holy Quran. This is a book that is described by Muslims as directly composed by God word by word. They are of the conviction that this belief is substantiated by various pieces of evidence from not only historical transmissions of the religious traditions and theological arguments but by first and foremost the Quran itself. This, associated with a sense of perpetuality of the mission as well as an understanding that Islam is set to address and permeate all aspects of life, has rendered the Quran a source of incessant inspiration for renewed efforts of exploration of God's will. The Holy Book offers theologians, jurists, ethicians and many more categories of people a foundation to delve into new arenas of spirituality and scholarly expeditions. The conference in London is intended to be an extra step towards drawing further contributions as far as these expeditions are concerned. The conference propounds topics of universal interest with an eye on more pressing areas in the modern times. Therefore it will be our privilege to call upon all those who find areas of the Quran studies that might be in need of further examination to submit their proposals.
The general topics that will be considered are but not limited to the following:
All those who wish to attend the conference including the presenters ought to register.
