Notes on the semantic range of “deliverance” in the Quran

Mohammed Rustom

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This article argues against the indiscriminate reading of Christian discursive categories into the Quran, taking the term “salvation” as its case in point. Rather than “salvation,” the word “deliverance” more adequately accounts for the complexity inherent in four closely related Arabic root structures employed throughout the Quran.
