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.

Waleed Arafa –
Excellent introduction to the sciences of Qur’anic exegesis, originally written in Arabic by Usama Al-Sayyid Al-Azhari as an introduction to “Al-Nibras” written by Al-Azhari’s mentor; the former Grand Mufti of Egypt Sh. Ali Gomaa, and now translated into English and introduced by a formidable scholar in his own right; Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi, an author and translator of many important Islamic esoteric texts especially texts from and about Hadramawt “The Blessed Valley” and it’s many saintly figures.
This book is a meeting point of three excellent scholars who are unearthing the real jewels of Islam and Islamic thought in a time marked by ignorance, fanaticism and violence. A must read for anyone who is interested in approaching Islam’s most important divinely revealed holy text; the noble Qur’an.
