In this article I am going to discuss Malek Bennabi’s (1905–1973) definition of Quranic phenomenon and his approach to the Muslim society, revelation on the basis of his work, The Quranic Phenomenon. Bennabi was educated in Paris and Algiers in engineering, later based himself in Cairo, where he spent much of his time toiling through fields of history, philosophy and sociology. In 1963, upon returning to Algeria, he witnessed modern science and technological civilizations unfold before his very eyes. This has spurred him to reflect on the question of culture in the early nineteenth century. His approach was simple; not parroting what had been discovered before his time, but rather, searching for what constitutes the essence of culture and the birth of civilization. He wrote Le Phénomène Coranique (The Quranic Phenomenon) in 1946. Bennabi’s reformulation of the Quran’s miracle within the wider philosophical and historical context of the religious phenomenon and prophetic movement is unique. It invites the mind to a different reading of human religious history and a different understanding of the human condition that goes far beyond the mere concerns of Muslims.
