Homework assignment due Friday 9/6

You are handing in your notes on this assignment (5 points) on Friday 9/6 so that we can discuss your process and findings.

  1. Pose a question to the Qur’an, on anything. Frame it explicitly as a question, and note this question down.
  2. Now you’re going to try to use the book to answer it. Start with the index to Abdullah Yusuf Ali’s translation, to navigate to the places in the text that may answer your question. You may need to adjust your search and use the index several times, or re-frame your question (note this process down).
  3. Answer your question, based on what you find in the text.


Note that the first paper is now due Friday 9/13 (rubric in the syllabus)
