The Qur’ān, Robinson affirms, is particularly an oral as well as aural text, meant more to be recited and heard . This latter part includes a critique by Robinson of some of the modern historical-critical scholarship on the Qur’ān.

The Qur’ān, Robinson affirms, is particularly an oral as well as aural text, meant more to be recited and heard than merely read and studied dialectically. This, in turn, speaks to the memorization of the Qur’ān which is frequently observed even among non-& Muslims who cannot understand it without a translation. Finally, he discusses the place of the Qur’ān in everyday Muslim life, including the uses of various verses as talismans in Muslim popular religion.
