An ideal beginner's handbook for the students of Quranic study
The development and disciplines and branches of knowledge which were related to the understanding of the Quran and are considered necessary for this purpose - what we call ulum al-quran - began in the lifetime of the prophet himself, peace and blessings be upon him. Numerous books have since been written on this, in most Muslim languages. However until now there was no book in English on this subject. The author has therefore rendered a great service by compiling the first English book, which fills a very serious and deeply felt gap.
An average English reader who has no access to an Arabic text like al-itqan had nothing to help him in understanding the Quran. This book should now provide valuable assistance to him in his task. It is precise, brief, yet quite comprehensive. It deals with the traditional subjects such as meaning of revelation, history and transmission of the text, ashab al-nuzul, exegesis, etc. as well as issues of more recent origin, like recordings of the Quran, orientalists’ views, translations and others. The concluding chapter has valuable practical advice for reading and studying of the Holy Book of Islam.
