Nasr Hamed Abu Zeid with his attachments on linguistical and hermeneutical theories is going to create affection between tradition and modernity through a modern interpretation. He supposes his method is the only way understanding Quran in which Quran will interpret according to terms of time. In this point of view some verses are only historical witnesses which are doomed to be forgotten, some are able to be rendered as allegorical interpretation, and some are texts with ability of expansion. In this article Abu Zeid's point of views about revelation, regarding Quran as a historical text and cultural product, and dynamic Ijtihad will discuss. The method of study is critical and analytical. The sources are published books, articles and interviews of Abu zeid in journals and websites, and critical books and articles on his perspective.
