I am a student studying the Middle-East and Arabic at BYU. I am doing a paper on Dhu al-Qarnayn mentioned in the Qur’an. In my research I discovered that many Islamic scholars believe this figure to be a prophet or a believer and that he was the figure known in the West as “Alexander the Great”. From what I have been taught about Alexander the Great it seems interesting that some Muslims would connect him with a prophetic figure in the Qur’an. I was wondering:
1. Do you consider Dhu al-Qarnayn to be Alexander the Great?
2. How does this fit with the Western understanding of Alexander?
3. Do you consider Dhu al-Qarnayn (Alexander) to be a prophet?
If you could help in any way, it would be very much appreciated.
Many Thanks! Continue reading
