Religious Harmony and Inter-faith Dialogue in the Writings of ḤAMKA

  • Wan Sabri Wan Yusof

Abstract

Abstract: Born into a religious family, Ḥamka traveled extensively to acquire knowledge. Having gained mastery of Arabic, ḤAMKA translated the Qur’ān, commented extensively on its various aspects and used it as a tool for the purification of Islam in Indonesia. Analysing the relevant verses of the Qur’ān as interpreted by ḤAMKA, gives an insight into his idea of religious unity and his promotion of inter-religious dialogue in order to promote peace and harmony in Indonesia in particular and the world in general.
