Main Article Content
There are various ways to examine the Qur'an's contents, and one of them is through a semantic approach. This approach involves studying the meaning of language using semantics. This paper analyzes the concepts related to the Holy Qur'an by Izutsu Toshihiko. The researcher seeks relevant books, papers, or journals found through library research to gather information about his view. Izutsu's idea of semantics involves analyzing the most critical words in a language to understand the worldview of the language user. This article presents the essentials of his idea, which includes studying basic and relational meanings, exploring word history and semantics, and clarifying the ideas of the Qur'an. Izutsu's approach helps understand Quranic terminologies. He selects a small number of words essential to comprehending the Qur'an and focuses on the most critical and fundamental word, which is essential to all concepts in the Qur'an. Additionally, he explains that the real purpose of Quranic semantics is to provide readers with a fresh perspective on the book so they can use it daily and understand the Quranic worldview.
