Zeid Ibn Sabet and the Issue of Collecting the Quran

Shahin Ghahremani Izadi[1]


One of the main issues in the history of the Quran is its collection over various eras and the quality of its compilation. Zeid Ibn Sabet is one of those scholars holding a prominent position amongst Quranic scholars in case of collection of the Quran. He has not remained obscure in the works of historiographers. Considering the role of Zeid in historical events after the Prophet (peace be upon him), the author of the present research proposes that Zeid's decision for collecting the Quran over various periods is not irrelevant to his political role. Given that, the present study aims at probing into Zeid's intentions for collecting the Quran considering his life throughout the early years of Islamfrom the emergence of the Prophet to his demiseand his political role. The role of Zeid in Saghifeh event, his accompanying the Caliphs, refraining from pledging allegiance to Ali (A), leaving Medina for Damascus, and joining Moawiyeh are issues discussed in this study.
