The methodology of this study is in the form of text analysis and content analysis. While inductive, deductive and comparative approaches are used to analyze the data. The findings of this study revealed that Maqasid al-Quran has a role in the interpretation of verses that are nuanced cultural diversity. It also revealed that HAMKA has applied the classical and contemporary Maqasid al-Quran to the interpretation of verses that are nuanced cultural diversity in Tafsir al-Azhar. Nevertheless, the contemporary model of Maqasid al-Quran is more dominant than the classical, although both verses are related to faith in terms of its content.
