From Book :

A Present to You! The purpose of this present is to acquaillt readers with the edicts contained in the Qur’an regarding the various aspects of everyday life. Their study will show that In matters of maroof (doing good deeds) these are no different from those required by law or the society in the U.S. This has contributed to its greatness. In the matter of munker (forbidding) there are many differences and the present problems arising in the U.S. are the result of those transgressions of these edicts. However, there is one major difference. A Muslim is required to observe these commandments as an act of worship, namely in obedience to and to seek the pleasure of Allah. Consequently he does not seek ways to get around these. For him these commandments are eternal and no society or authority can make changes in these.



Commentaries on Soorahs al-Ikhlaas, al-Falaq and an-Naas. This Tafseer contains a far greater depth of understanding due to the number of other classical and contemporary commentaries used like al-Qurtubee’s al-Jaami‘ li Ahkaam al-Qur’aan, Ibn al-Qayyim’s Compilations, ash-Shawkaanee’s Fat’h al-Qadeer, ash-Shanqeetee’s Adwaa ul-Bayaan, as-Sa‘dee’s Tayseer al-Kareem ar-Rahmaan, and Al ‘Uthaymeen’s Tafseer al-Qur’aan al-Kareem.



The History of the Qur’anic Text from Revelation to Compilation : A Comparative Study with the Old and New Testaments. The Qur’an reigns supreme in Muslim hearts as the most sacred of texts: a profusion of exalted ideas to rouse the mind, noble histories to stir the soul, universal truths to awaken the conscience and precise injunctions directing humanity to its own deliverance, all distilled into the melodious essence that is the Word of Allah. Through fourteen centuries Muslims have persevered in championing the text against corruption, memorising its every word and contemplating its every phrase, so that in our own times untold millions have enthusiastially committed each letter to heart.



`Ulum al-Qur’an: An Introduction to the Sciences of Quran, deals with the traditional subjects such as meaning of revelation, history and transmission of the text, asbab al-nuzul, exegesis, etc. as well as issues of more recent origin, like recording of the Qur’an, orientalists’ views, translations and others. The concluding chapter has valuable practical advice for reading and studying of the Holy Book of Islam.



This article, which appeared in Urdu under the title  Musalmanon per Qur’an-e-Majeed Kay Huqooq, is based on two addresses delivered by Dr. Israr Ahmad to the Congregations in Jami‘ah Khazra, Samanabad (Lahore) on two consecutive Fridays in January 1968, at a time when the Muslims of Pakistan were celebrating the 1400th anniversary of the commencement of the Revelation of the Holy Qur’an to Prophet  Muhammad (SAW).  Hence the translation now appears under the title The Obligations Muslims Owe to the Qur’an.  This translation has already been published in the form of an article by the All Pakistan Islamic Education Congress in a recent issue of their journal Islamic Education under the title: “What Does the Qur’an Demand from its Followers?” and now, through their courtesy and cooperation, it is reappearing under a new title in the form of a regular booklet.



Translation Of The Meanings Of The Glorious Qur’an: Saheeh International, based out of Saudi Arabia, apparently took the Muhsin Khan “Noble Qur’an,” and modified and revised its translation, to come up with this new translation.



In The Shade Of The Qur’an is more than ‘just another’ commentary; yet it is not too over-reaching or outlandish to be a completely new interpretation. It is an earnest, sincere and sober look at man’s contemporary achievements and difficulties in the light of the message of the Qur’an. It is an effort to vigorously explore its rich wisdom, and expand its invaluable guidance for the benefit of an increasingly ‘sophisticated’ , yet highly perplexed modern society.



An Excellent Gift to Students of Islamic Sciences Literally translated ‘The Fundamental Principles of Qur’aanic Interpretation,’ this book refers to the branches of knowledge which are necessary to provide an accurate interpretation of the Qur’anic texts, such as Arabic grammar and syntax, Arabic literature and Qur’anic sciences (‘uloom al-Qur’aan). Addressed topics include the Tafseer of the Qur’an, books of tafseer, translations of the Qur’an, Wahy (‘divine revelation’), reasons for revelation, the differences between Makkan and Madinan revelations, Naskh, the Muhkam and Mutashaabih, and more.
