Al-Jabiri

FacebookAli-Al-Jabiri

Work which would have stirred rich intellectual debate, involving historical and methodological questions in studying contemporary Arab political thought has, instead, taken bizarre twist. George Tarabishi's book Nakd Nakd Al Aql Al Arabi, Nazariyyat Al Aql, published by Dar Al Saqi, levels harsh criticisms at fellow Arab intellectual, Moroccan theorist Mohammed Abed Al-Jabiri in response to his Theory of Arab Reason, third book of four volume. Tarabishi focuses on both intellectual limits of Al-Jabiri and alleged scandal, fraudulent usage of sources, including misinterpretations and erroneous conclusions. This has not only set stage for what has come to be known as Tarabishi Al-Jabiri debate, but also has unleashed another scandal: revealing Al-Jabiris sectarian predisposition when he explained Tarabishi's criticisms in terms of Syrian author's Christian faith. This intellectual confrontation dates back to 1993 publication by Tarabishi of Mazbahat Al Turath fi Al Thaqafa Al Arabiyya Al mu'asira. In Massacre of Turath, Tarabishi reportedly devoted half of his book to debating Al-Jabiri, offering deconstructionist reading of Moroccan theorists epistemological approach to Arab culture, according to Kamel Shaya in London-base Arabic weekly Al Wasat. In Massacre of Turath, Tarabishi criticizes Critique of Arab Reason on grounds of Al-Jabiris irrational study of nature of Reason, and his bias in favor of its entrusted judgment in categorizing three fields of knowledge: statement, knowledge, and proof. Besides Al-Jabiris epistemological approach and his illogical examination of nature of Reason, Tarabishi brings to light, perhaps for first time, his manipulation of evidence and its interpretation in ways that contradict its original meaning. Theory of Reason continues attacks on Al-Jabiris intellectual project, where Tarabishi substantiates his claims not only by Arabic sources as he does in Massacre of Turath, but also by French sources from which he draw., Write Shaya. Compared with Massacre of Turath, reader finds in Theory of Reason comprehensive deconstruction and dismantling of Al-Jabiris theoretical and bibliographical tools. Shaya quotes Tarabishi to that of hundreds of citations Al-Jabiri uses to constitute Arab Reason' only very few remain free from distortion, falsification, or from illogical usage. Intellectual confrontation that follow Tarabishi's Theory of Reason has assumed strange twist, especially after interview Al-Jabiri gave to Moroccan Al Itihad Al Ishtiraki newspaper, published on February 27 1997. What transpired in interview appears to have transformed debate from intellectual discussion into controversy. Portions of interview were picked up by one critic after another, starting with Hazem Saghieh, who writes column in Al Hayat. When debate intensified on pages of Al Hayat and other Arab dailies, Al Hayat reproduced text of original interview with Al-Jabiri on April 27 1997.

Members of this family had become important Ulema in second half of 18 century. In 1760, head of family was Ahmad Jabiri, who lived in quarter of 'Aynayn in western suburbs of city and owned considerable property there which he inherited from his mother mostly. In 1765, about five years before his death, Ahmad created waqf from this property, including family home, which was to be residence for his descendants, Nevertheless, before he died, three of his four sons had moved into new houses in different quarters of city: ' Taha: clerk in court and move to Farafira, yousif: start as teacher in Aleskandaria school in bab Al jynayn, then He move to Masabin although He spend most of His time in Istanbul where He had take post as clerk in imperial divan.

AL-JABIRI, ABD (1935 - )

Call it Naqd Al-Aql in Arabic. It consists of Formation of Arab Reason, first published in 1984; Structure of Arab Reason from 1986; and Political Reason, released in 1990. In this concert, bayani stands for discursive theology grounded in Islamic scriptures and exemplified by writing of Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali; irfani refers to mystical, intuitivist and illuminationist Traditions of Persian World; while burhani represent demonstrative Reason which reach its heyday in work of Ibn Rushd and his interpretation of Aristotelian or Peripatetic Philosophy. Al-Jabiri elaborates this in great detail in of Arab Reason. This last point has been taken up by Yudian Wahyudi, professor in Faculty of Syariah at UIN Sunan Kalijaga in Yogyakarta, former visiting scholar at Harvard and Tufts University, and now senior official in Indonesian ministry of religious affairs. Admittedly, his hermeneutics of fiqh and study of maqasid Al-shari draw predominantly on Hanafis rereading of usul Al-fiqh as philosophical methodology, but his approach is also grounded in comparative study of Hasan Hanafi, Muhammad Abid Al-Jabiri, and Nurcholish Madjid which he wrote his PhD at McGill.
