Recognition in the Arabic Narrative Tradition

Edinburgh University Press

From the epistemology of a narrative paragon, Joseph in the Qurʾan, we move on in this chapter to consider three case studies, one from each of the following genres: tafsīr, sīrah and hadith. These are all still emphatically religious textual corpora. The aim is to evince how echoes of the Joseph story inflect each of the three examples – the stories of Zayd ibn Oārithah, Salmān al-Fārisī and the slander against ʿĀʾishah, which are centred on prophecy, the early mission of Muaammad, revelation and the ethics of communal conduct.

Keywords:   Arabic Narrative, Narrative, Qur’an, tafsīr sīrah and hadith, Epistemology, Literary Construction, Arabic Literary Tradition, Aanagnorisis
