Knowing the Qur'ān: Consolidated Classics and Modern Commentaries
The Qur’ān is Allah’s last revelation to mankind; the fruit of all His guidance He has revealed since the beginning of creation. It was revealed to His last and greatest Prophet, Sayyiduna Muhammad ﷺ, through the archangel Gabriel, over a 23-year period. With just over 77,000 words, it is not just a literary masterpiece but a miracle, such that it challenges anyone to imitate it. Indeed, the greatest Arab orators and linguists were left dumbstruck by its composition and comprehensiveness. Despite its brevity, it is a treasure chest of unending wisdom and meanings, whilst its conciseness rejuvenates the reader.
Throughout the centuries, scholars in the art of tafseer (commentary and exegesis) have, in light of the prevailing times, endeavoured to explain the depth and breadth of the Qur’ān’s eloquent message.
Knowing the Qur’ān is a unique work that brings together key classical and contemporary commentaries to reveal the Qur’ān’s eternal message, including:
The Companion Abdullah ibn Abbaas
Imam Raazi’s Tafseer Kabeer
Tafseer Ibn Katheer
Tafseer Ruh al Bayaan
Tafseer Dhiyaa ul Quran
Tafseer Nur ul Irfaan
Tafseer Tibyaan ul Quran
This work has been compiled and written in an accessible manner and is a must for anyone interested in the Qur’ān, Muslim and non-Muslim, of all ages. This first volume focuses on the last 12 short chapters of the Qur’ān which most Muslims have memorised to heart and recite daily inside and outside their prayers.
