Quran and its Study
The present work represents one of the finest contemporary examples of Qur’anic scholarship written by a scholar who has spent a lifetime studying and teaching Qur’anic studies. In the course of five rich sections, Prof Adnan Zarzour considers an incredible range of topics including the nature of Qur’anic revelation, the history of the Qur’an’s compilation, an exploration of the Qur’an’s language, style and the nature of its stylistic inimitability and artistic features.
Other themes explored here include the impact of the Qur’an on Islamic civilisation, as well as the various classical sub disciplines of Qur’anic studies, including the study of the variant readings (qirā’āt), the reasons for revelation (asbāb al-nuzūl), and abrogation (naskh).
Treasures of the Qur'an
The first group of Surahs in the Qur'an (al-Fatihah, al-Baqarah, al ‘Imran, al-Nisa’ and al-Ma’idah) are introduced and examined in this title, with the author looking at their structure and major themes. The central theme of which is conferring the status of ummah (Muslim community) on the believers, to which a new Shariah (legal guidance) was given; a complete code of life was promulgated.
Written in a clear and simple manner this book offers much valuable material, as well as explanatory notes and key words. It is suitable for readers interested in the Islamic vision in the Qur’an.
Four Key Concepts
This book elucidates these basic Qur’anic concepts: ilah, Rabb, Ibadah and Din in order to bring out fully the Islamic way of life, as distinct from other perspectives. This elaboration goes a long way in developing a sound understanding of the Qur’an. It also explains the man-God relationship in Islam, guiding Muslims on how to lead their lives in total surrender to Allah.
Women in the Quran
With few female commentators on the meaning of the Qur’an and an overreliance on the readings of the Qur’an compiled centuries ago in different circumstances to today, this message is often lost. By acknowledging the systemic injustice frequently experienced by Muslim women in today’s societies in the name of religion; and also rejecting a perspective that seeks to promote Western values as the only means of liberating them, the author is able to define a third way. One in which their refusal to remain silent in the face of injustice is an act of devotion and their demand for reform, within the guidelines laid out by God, will lead to liberation.
