Sahih International: "The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful." (2: 185)
The Month of Ramadan, in grammar, is called an “Idaafa”, a genitive or possessive-construct phrase. The phrase contains two nouns related to each other in such a way that, as read in Arabic, the first term is possessed by the second term. Additionally, the single object actually being labeled by the phrase is the first term.
So, in this construction, “The Month of Ramadan”, “The Month” is what is emphasized. For example, a “Chalice of Gold” is describing the “Chalice” and stating that it’s essential make-up is “Gold”. Likewise, “The Month of Ramadan” means that the substance and the essence of “The Month” is “Ramadan” but it’s about “the Month.”
James K Stewart author of the book The Bible According to Jim.
In 1976, Rev. Dr. James K. Stewart read the entire Bible for the first time and became fascinated with God’s relationship with creation. After an early life in construction, Dr. Stewart felt God’s calling and returned to school. At university he majored in ancient history and studied the Hebrew language. His exegetical work is taken directly from Biblical Hebrew and Greek. This ability has helped him understand how male bias has been promoted by the church in all ages.
This book has evolved from the frustration of listening to clergy preach on Old Testament stories and knowing their knowledge comes from commentaries written in the 19th century. Biblical Hebrew speaks clearly to those who listen. Proper nouns enrich the Biblical stories.
Women have a voice and are major contributors to scripture but not from all traditions. The book speaks of the two main traditions, which provide most of the information. The main contributor is Yahwist (male supremacy) and the other major contributor is Elohist (male and female equality). In the Yahwistic tradition, women are blamed for man’s sin.
