Chapter Summary

Despite the fact that the possibility of Jewish influence on early Islamic law is at least once again being considered in current debates, a comprehensive and open-ended (if not open-minded) examination into Qurʾāic legal conceptions in the light of Jewish traditions has yet to be undertaken. Hence, the chapter represents an attempt to interpret a non-narrative, non-haggadic passage from the Qurʾā. The aim is to use an individual case to again pursue the question if it is instructive to read the Qurʾā's legal regulations, which as a rule may be expected to represent innovative reforms designed to ensure or at the very least improve the functioning of the believers' community, against the backdrop of the rabbinical tradition. Under particular scrutiny is precisely where the possibilities and the limits lie for a "comparative" study between Qurʾāic and Jewish law. For this purpose, a single verse has been selected: Q 2:282.

Keywords: early Islamic law; Jewish law; Q 2:282; Qurʾan; rabbinical law
