A Study of The Mystical Quranic Exegesis by Muhammad Sholeh Darat (1820-1903)

The present study aims at investigating the first Quranic exegesis in the Javanese language by Muhammad Sholeh Darat of Semarang (1820-1903), namely Faiḍurraḥmān. It primarily concerns with the mystical notion of the two-volume exegesis which characterizes also all other works by Sholeh. In general, this mystical exegesis employs the allusive method in which a far-reaching meaning of a verse is worked out.
