This study, which is entitled " Abdul Majid al-Sharfi’s Modernist Reading of the Holy Qur’an" is a thesis to obtain a Master's degree from the College of Islamic Theology" at Al-Quds University in Palestine. The aim of the study is to fulfill an insightful critical study of the Quranic project of Abdelmajeed al- Sharfi who is considered one of the most prominent figures of the modernist Quranic studies school, and to deconstruct his thesis to reveal its principles and evaluate its methodology and claims. The study is composed of an introduction with a three chapters, and a conclusion. The first chapter was devoted to analyze and interpret the views of Abdelmajeed al-Sharfi on the classical books of exegesis (Tafssir) books, and his unorthodox interpretation of the Quranic verses. The second chapter focused on shedding light on the fundamental assumptions of al-Sharfi which are the basis of the modernist reading. As for the methods adopted in my study, I followed the inductive method, as I extrapolated the parts in which al-Sharfi used the Qur'an and its sciences. And I followed, too, both descriptive and analytic methods, as I presented some of the statements of al-Sharfi in each case and follow it with my analysis, critics and comments. The study concluded with a set of results, but the most important one is that the modernist reading of Abdelmajeed al-Sharfi started with hermeneutic tools that deny the sacred state of the Qur'an as a reveal book and ended up with repudiating its divine origin, which will lead to establishing a new understanding of Islam that rejects the undisputed doctrines of Islam received from the prophetic age, including the basic Islamic creeds. Concerning the recommendation presented by the study, it is necessarily to encourage all the experts in the fields of the Islamic studies, especially Islamic Theology and the biography of our prophet (peace be upon him), to be more concerned about the studies published by Abdelmajeed al-Sharfi, to refute his heretical views retaled to the Quran, its origin, and commandments.
