Starlatch presents an enduring classic work (composed by the illustrious Imam al-Nawawi) on the etiquette that a Muslim should have with regard to handling, teaching, studying, respecting, and reciting the Quran.
This fascinating and important book attempts to investigate the nature of the seven Ahruf in which the Qur'an has been revealed and the reason for the variations in readings among the Qurra' of the Qur'an
This unique book brings together, for the first time, traditional and new principles required in Qur'anic interpretation. It sets the challenge for present day scholars to take up the mantle of elucidating the Qur'an within our modern context and reinforces to the layman what a bewilderingly wondrous gift it is that Allah has placed in our midst.
Allah describes the Qur'an as the ‘guidance to mankind, and the Criterion (of right and wrong)’ (2:185). Islamic scholars have therefore sought to explain the sciences associated with correctly understanding the revelation.
This book attempts to answer questions about the place of the Qur'an in the world today, such as Does the Qur'an promote peace and harmony or discord and conflict? Does it contribute to pluralism or exclusivism?
In this seminal work, the author suggests that each chapter of the Qur’an contains at least one distinct theme that underlies—and shows the logical connection—between every verse of that chapter. Moreover, he proposes that the chapters themselves take together make up a deliberate and unique portrait of human beings and of the spiritual life.
