The object of the essay is prophecy in the Qur’ān, through the stories of the prophets and the language they use. Specifically, the Qur’ānic narrative and Joseph’s speeches have been systematically examined, with the intention of introducing a symmetrical reading of the story between incidents and the specific language. Emphasis has been placed on the philological aspects, by focusing the analysis on the Arabic version of the Qur’ān, in order to try to draw up a personal profile of Joseph and, at the same time, to attempt to counter an approach that claims to see all the Qur’ānic envoys only in their instrumental function in the mission of Muḥammad.
Qur’ān, prophets, Joseph, language.
Titre original : “Joseph in the Qur’ān, a prophetic narrative. Incidents and specific language”
L’objet de cet essai est la prophétie dans le Coran, à travers les récits des prophètes et le langage qu’ils utilisent. Plus précisément, le récit coranique et les discours concernant la figure de Joseph ont été systématiquement examinés avec l’intention d’introduire une lecture symétrique de l’histoire entre les événements et le langage. L’accent a été mis sur les aspects philologiques, en focalisant l’analyse sur la version arabe du Coran, afin de tenter de dresser un portrait personnel de Joseph et, en même temps, contrer une approche qui tiendrait tous les émissaires coraniques comme des figures servant la mission de Muhammad.
