About this title: The present work deals with anthropomorphism and interpretation of the Qur'?n in the theology of the Zaidite imam al-Q?sim ibn Ibr?h?m (785-860 A.D.). The edition and annotated translation of al-Q?sim's epistle "Kit?b al-mustarshid" is preceded by a detailed introduction, which treats early Islamic theology. For the abrogation of the literal meanings of Qur'?nic anthropomorphic expressions, the author uses similes, idioms and phrases in Arabic, pieces of evidence from ancient Arabic poetry and rational arguments which often reflect the Mu'tazilite ways of dealing with anthropomorphism. The second subject, the place of the Qur'?n in al-Q?sim's writings and his methods of interpretation of the Qur'?n, bears directly upon his doctrines in general and upon his doctrine of anti-anthropomorphism in particular, and also contributes to the understanding of the development of Qur'?nic exegesis in the first half of the ninth century.
