I am looking for a "systematic theology" for Islam ideally in English but Arabic would also do. This is different than the tafsir or anything like that.
In this case, a systematic theology is an attempt to answer the question of "What does the (whole) Quran teach us about x?", where x is any given topic and is perhaps supported by hadiths. It groups all the verses in a topic together in order to come to valid conclusions. I recognize that the Quran is supposed to be read in the order given, but there is also great value in grouping all verses on a given topic to greater understanding any given subject.
It would be an attempt to group verses together on topics such as:
- The Quran as the Word of God (inerrancy/infallibility, preservation, clarity, etc.)
- The Existence of God
- The Knowability of God
- The Character/Attributes of God
- The Names of God
- God's Providence/Predestination
- 5 Pillars (Tawhid, Salah, Zakah, Siam, Hajj)
- 6 Articles of Faith (Allah, Angels, Holy Books, Rasools, Fate, Afterlife)
- The nature of mankind
- The nature of sin (major, minor, etc.)
- Muhammad's Prophethood
- The Previous Prophets
- The Second Coming
- Judgment Day
This is not an attempt to come up with an outline of a systematic theology, but merely to give an example of the type of comprehensiveness I would be looking for and why it would be useful. I also recognize there are various schools of Islamic theology, but I don't want to exclude any particular school in this search.
What references for systematic grouping of texts and exposition of teachings exist for the Quran? I would also be interested in a "topical" Quran (compare topical Bible online 1 and 2), with references all verses on a certain subject quite nicely arranged. I have a "subject index" in my Quran, which is very helpful, but I am still curious about finding a true systematic theology, which are generally several hundred to several thousand-page expositions.
