Abstract

Several efforts have been recently made by Muslim scholars in understanding the true meaning of the Qur'an. This is proven by more and more publications concerning the interpretation of the Qur'an come into existence. Moreover, the development of commentary of the Qur'an has produced a variety of approaches and methods in perceiving the message of the Qur'an. This positive trend, of course, should be strongly appreciated. Despite having the bulk of treatises on the commentary of the Qur'an, it does not make much easier for Muslim in general to understand its meaning. There are some Muslims who perceive the verses of the Qur'an only by textual approach regardless of the real meaning and purpose represented by the verse itself. In other words, understanding the verses of the Qur'an without considering its context. Therefore, it would be necessary to conduct an intensive research regarding some interpretations of the Qur'an which seem apparently simple but are not appropriate. A mistake in interpreting the verses of the Qur'an might lead to misunderstanding the message under consideration. This article aims at elucidating some misinterpretations of the verses of the Qur'an that should be placed within their proper contexts. This is conducted through library research by exploring some popular references on the commentary of the Qur'an.
