This article outlines several features of a new methodology of the
of the concept of Sunnah. The proposed methodology would permit us to better understand the
of the Sunnah and its inter-relationship with the body of Quranic and
texts. It will do so by outlining some salient features of a new methodology that will allow for the conceptual differentiation between Sunnah and
beyond those proposed so far. The article will argue that the way the
of the concept of Sunnah is understood or defined is inextricably linked with the way the
of Quranic Revelation is conceptualized. Additionally, the paper will argue on the basis of several examples that apart from its
or practice based component, the Sunnah comprises of
elements which are epistemologically and methodologically independent of
but organically linked to a particular type of Quranic hermeneutic. The article concludes with a brief discussion on the status of
literature in relation to the Quranic and Sunnah bodies of knowledge.
