Manhaj al-ḥarakī or dynamic methodology is one of modern methods or approaches in Qur’ānic exegesis which has been introduced in the early decades of the twentieth century. The development of this method has been established by Islamic movements especially Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwān al- Muslimīn). However, this method has not been widely known, in fact, a few scholars of the Qur’ānic studies discussed it. This study, therefore, attempts to introduce the concept of Manhaj alharakī and its origin, as well as the dimension of renewal (tajdīd) in interpretation of the Qur’ān. By applying qualitative method and descriptive analysis, this study concludes that the Manhaj al-harakī is not completely a new method in the Qur’ānic exegesis, but it is a rebranding to the method which had been used by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his companions and generation of Salaf in dealing with the Qur’ān. The application of Manhaj al-ḥarakī in interpretation of the Qur’ān aims to bring modern Muslims closer to the Qur’ān and to understand the objective of its revelation as a practical and realistic book which deals with every aspect of human life.

Some contemporary scholars of the Qur’an seeks to popularize the use of the theory of kulliyyāt al-tafsīr in understanding the Quranic text which is very complex. In fact, this theory of kulliyyāt al-tafsīr can rival the Izutsu’s semantic theory espoused by some contemporary Quranic scholars. Therefore, this article seeks to explain the concept of kulliyyāt al-tafsīr thoroughly and at the same time reveal its significance in the field of Qur’anic exegesis. Through the collection of data related to kulliyyāt al-tafsīr scattered in various books of tafsir and ʿulūm al-Quran, the study can conclude that kulliyyāt al-tafsīr is a general conclusion produced by the exegetes about words and styles contained in the Quran. The significance of this theory can be highlighted through the identification of the role played by kulliyyāt al-tafsīr in the field of exegesis.
