SURAH 6. Volume 5, The famous DETAILED commentary by Sayyid Qutb.
VOLUME 5, SURAH 6
Ever since its revelation 1400 years ago, the Quran has been a book of guidance and inspiration, a reference point, and a rich source of social and moral dynamism for hundreds of millions of people throughout the world who believe it to be the immutable word of God.
Hardly a generation passes without a fresh attempt to unravel the meanings of the Quran and gain deeper insight into its universal message within a contemporary perspective.
In the Shade of the Quran is more than 'just another' commentary; yet it is not too overreaching or outlandish to be a completely new interpretation. It is an earnest, sincere and sober look at man's contemporary achievements and difficulties in the light of the message of the Quran. It is an effort to vigorously explore its rich wisdom, and expand its invaluable guidance for the benefit of an increasingly 'sophisticated', yet highly perplexed modern society.
The work, which is by far Syed Qutb's largest and most profound, spans the whole of the text of the Quran. It was written, and partly rewritten, over a period of more than 15 years, most of which the author had spent in Egyptian prisons, during the 1950's and 1960's. In it is embedded Sayyid Qutb's insight, highly esteemed intellectual vigor, and his widely-acclaimed literary prowess.
In the Shade of the Quran has been universally recognized as an outstanding contribution to Islamic thought and scholarship, to which students and scholars, as well as contemporary Islamic revivalist movements all over the world, owe a great deal. Now that it is available in English, it will continue to enlighten and inspire millions more. It will take its rightful place as an indispensable work of reference for a proper understanding of contemporary Islamic thinking.
