Context of Situation and the Specificity of the Quranic Text

Brahimi Tahar

Abstract

This article deals with one of the most important types of context, which is the context of situation, as regards its meaning, components and its relationship with the Holy Quran. This is achieved through revealing the specificities of the Quranic text, like the specificity of the speaker and the addressee and taking into account the circumstance and the indications that are linked to [the Quranic] revelation, its time and place. This study deals then with what is wrong in using context of situation and its equivocal use which is called historicism of the text and historicity of the author of the text.
