          Abstract

          The interpretation of Qur'an 66:4 relates to our understanding of events in the Prophet's household in the early Medinan period. Traditionally, exegetes have tended to interpret this verse as a reprimand to the wives of the Prophet, their interpretation resting on their understanding of the meaning of ṣaghw. Two South Asian scholars of this century, cAbd al-Hamīd al-Farāhī and Amīn Aḥsan Iṣlāhī, have questioned this traditional interpretation. In their interpretation, they accord primacy to the Qur'anic text, reading this in the light of classical Arabic usage and attestations form jāhilī poetry. Their method of tafsīr demonstrates both a concern for rigorous and philologically sound scholarship and an engagement with the emotional and psychological dimensions of this verse of the Qur'an.
