Muslim Scholars as Self-Translators
journal contributionposted on 2020-10-27, 16:19 authored by Ahmed Elimam
Self-translating is commonly practised by Muslim imams in their sermons, including those delivered at weekly Friday congregations. Self-translation in this context is an unrecognised phenomenon, insofar as analysis of it is conspicuously absent from the translation literature. It is, therefore, significant from both pedagogical and academic points of view to conduct research into how this long-standing practice is carried out in this context. To do this, four Friday sermons delivered in mosques across the UK are recorded, transcribed and examined. Furthermore, the respective imams are interviewed in order to corroborate the results of the descriptive part of the research.
