The third volume of Imam al-Buti's pinnacle papers.
How does the Qurʾān appeal to man’s perfected rational and emotional constitution and draw him towards the realities that it speaks of, which include all of his intellectual and sentimental faculties, in equal proportion?
How is its address formulated to suit all classes of people, of differing educations and ages, such that everyone understands the intended meaning to the extent that his education allows without any contradiction in these understandings?
How does it proceed with its arbitrations of the intellect in such a way that the rules of logic are used but none of its terminology is relied on?
In its dialogue, how does it satisfy both the imagination and the intellect without one of them prevailing over the other?
It is in this book, which contains novel studies on the Qur'an, that you will find the answers to these questions and more, even if its title is familiar and well known.
Abḥāth fil-Qimmah (‘Pinnacle Papers’) comprises ten books by the Imam, each of which covers an important topic in Islamic thought. The great scholar deals with several problematic issues that have been raised in recent times in a brilliant, fluent fashion.
