Book Description
Containing the full Arabic text of the Qur'an, an accompanying English translation, and extensive commentary, this is a compilation of the Muslim faith's Final Revelation from God to mankind through the last Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon Him. The Qur'an has a wealth of information--both worldly wisdom and intellectual concepts--providing a code of life for humankind generally and Muslims in particular.

Book Description

The Koran: A Very Short Introduction
Michael A. Cook
0192853449
April 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Koran has constituted a remarkably resilient core of identity and continuity for a religious tradition that is now in its fifteenth century. In this Very Short Introduction, Michael Cook provides a lucid and direct account of the significance of the Koran both in the modern world and in
that of traditional Islam. He gives vivid accounts of its role in Muslim civilization, illustrates the diversity of interpretations championed by traditional and modern commentators, discusses the processes by which the book took shape, and compares it to other scriptures and classics of the
historic cultures of Eurasia.


The Formation of the Classical Tafsir Tradition: The Quran Commentary of Al-Thalabi (D. 427/1035) (Texts and Studies on the Quran, V. 1)
Walid A. Saleh
9004127771
December 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This work is both an introduction to the genre of classical tafsîr and a detailed study of one of its major architects, al-Thaʿlabî (d. 427/1035). The book offers a detailed study of the hermeneutical principles that governed al-Thaʿlabî's approach to the Qurʾân, principles which became the norm in later exegetical works. It is divided into three main sections; the first outlines the life and times of the author; the second is a detailed study of his major exegetical work, al-Kashf; the third charts a brief history of the genre of tafsîr through documenting the reactions of later exegetes to al-Kashf. This work brings together material never examined before and tries to offer a new way of understanding the history of classical Qurʾân exegesis.

Qur'an and Woman: Re-Reading the Sacred Text from a Woman's Perspective
Amina Wadud
0195128362
June 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Fourteen centuries of Islamic thought have produced a legacy of interpretive readings of the Qu'ran written almost entirely by men. Now, with Qu'ran and Woman, Amina Wadud provides a first interpretive reading by a woman, a reading which validates the female voice in the Qu'ran and brings it
out of the shadows. Muslim progressives have long argued that it is not the religion but patriarchal interpretation and implementation of the Qu'ran that have kept women oppressed. For many, the way to reform is the reexamination and reinterpretation of religious texts.
Qu'ran and Woman contributes a gender inclusive reading to one of the most fundamental disciplines in Islamic thought, Qu'ranic exegesis. Wadud breaks down specific texts and key words which have been used to limit women's public and private role, even to...


War, Terror & Peace in the Qur'an and in Islam
Timothy P. Schwartz-Barcott

Nov 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
T. P. Schwartz-Barcott has taken 230 Muslim battles from the years 624 through the Afghanistan-Iraq war and, combined with incisive evaluation of scripture from the Qur'an as used by Muslim warriors, has deducted some surprising--and highly useful--patterns of warfare and combat behavior that will prove enormously useful in dealing realistically with Muslims in combat should their present anti-Western operations continue throughout the world. An amazing compilation of, and objective research into, Muslim warfare. Especially useful for government and military leaders who must deal with Muslims in combat situations. Critically reviewed by prominent internationalists and praised for its practical and realistic insights into the motivations and patterns of behavior of Muslim warriors.

Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women
Geraldine Brooks
0385475772
December 1995
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Geraldine Brooks spent two years as a Middle East news correspondent, covering the death of Khomeini and the like. She also learned a lot about what it's like for Islamic women today. Brooks' book is exceedingly well-done--she knows her Islamic lore and traces the origins of today's practices back to Mohammed's time. Personable and very readable, Brooks takes us through the women's back door entrance of the Middle East for an unusual and provocative view.

From Publishers Weekly
Having spent six years covering the Middle East for the Wall Street Journal, Brooks presents an exploration of the daily life of Muslim women and the often contradictory forces that shape their lives. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Koran for Dummies

Review
“…I was quickly humbled by this guide, which showed me how much I had misunderstood.  I would recommend this to anyone interested in Islam…”  (Catholic Herald, 26 November 2004)

The Qur'an's overall context of hostility to those who disbelieve in Mohammed's prophecy is downplayed in one forthcoming book, The Koran for Dummies by Sohaid Sultan. Under the heading "Discovering the Basic Messages of the Koran," Sultan lists as Mohammed's basic themes "The unity of God," "Worship and service to God," "Prophets to teach and guide," "Completion of past revelations," "Guidance to a spiritual path," "Movement for social change," "Accountability of deeds." All of which sounds pretty harmless—nothing about making war on unbelievers. (Publishers Weekly, May 10, 2004) ...
