In the second edition, Sells offers a new translation and commentary on the Sura of the Compassionate (al-Rahmān), which holds a special place within Islamic devotion and literature. Additionally, a new preface addresses the ongoing controversy over teaching about Islam and the Qur'an in Americna universities."--Publisher.

Feminist Edges of the Qur an Book Review:

Aysha A. Hidayatullah offers the first comprehensive examination of contemporary feminist Qur'anic interpretation, exploring its dynamic challenges to Islamic tradition and contemporary Muslim views of the Qur'an. She analyzes major feminist readings of the Qur'an beginning in the latetwentieth century, synthesizing their common concepts and methods and revealing their vital part in the development of the nascent field of Qur'anic tafsir (exegesis). Hidayatullah contributes her own critical assessment of feminist ''impasses'' in the Qur'anic text and the field's appeals to the principles of equality and justice. She expands these observations into a radical critique of feminist approaches to the Qur'an, arguing that the feminist exegeticalendeavor has reached a point of irresolvable contradiction by making claims about the Qur'an that are not fully supported by the text. Hidayatullah outlines major challenges to the authority of feminist interpretations of the Qur'an and interrogates the feminist premises on which they have relied,questioning the viability of current strands of feminist Qur'anic interpretation and proposing a major revision of its exegetical positions. An innovative work of Muslim feminist theology, this volume offers an essential contribution to conversations about feminist tafsir and asking bold questions at the ''edge'' of Qur'anic interpretation.

Communities of the Qur an Book Review:

What is the nature of the Qur’an? It might seem a straightforward question, but there is no consensus among modern communities of the Qur’an, both Muslim and non-Muslim, about the answer. And why should there be? On numerous occasions throughout history, believers from different schools and denominations, and at different times and places, have agreed to disagree. The Qur’anic interpreters, jurists and theologians of medieval Baghdad, Cairo and Cordoba coexisted peacefully in spite of their diverging beliefs. Seeking to revive this ‘ethics of disagreement’ of Classical Islam, this volume explores the different relationships societies around the world have with the Qur’an and how our understanding of the text can be shaped by studying the interpretations of others. From LGBT groups to urban African American communities, this book aims to represent the true diversity of communities of the Qur’an in the twenty-first century, and the dialogue and debate that can flow among them.

Qur an and Woman Book Review:

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 justify violence toward Muslim women, revealing that their original meaning and context defy such interpretations. What her analysis clarifies is the lack of gender bias, precedence, or prejudice in the essential language of the Qur'an. Despite much Qu'ranic evidence about the significance of women, gender reform in Muslim society has been stubbornly resisted. Wadud's reading of the Qu'ran confirms women's equality and constitutes legitimate grounds for contesting the unequal treatment that women have experienced historically and continue to experience legally in Muslim communities. The Qu'ran does not prescribe one timeless and unchanging social structure for men and women, Wadud argues lucidly, affirming that the Qu'ran holds greater possibilities for guiding human society to a more fulfilling and productive mutual collaboration between men and women than as yet attained by Muslims or non-Muslims.

Quranic Code of Conduct a Guide to Etiquette of the Quran Book Review:

***Visit to get 3 Islamic books for FREE*** Do you want to STRENGTHEN YOUR CONNECTION WITH THE QURAN? If your answer is YES, then you will find this book extremely useful. INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR Q - WHY SHOULD SOMEONE READ THIS BOOK? A - Despite the presence of dozens of translations of the Quran and supplication (dua) books in the marketplace, it is sad to find Muslims living in the most pathetic condition in the world. They seem to be the people who are most in need of help/guidance. The simple reason why we have stopped benefitting from this Divine Message is that, we approach the Glorious Quran without knowing its proper etiquette. My book will teach you the correct etiquette of the Quran, which will strengthen your relationship with it. Once you learn the etiquette, you will notice that the Noble Quran will once again take the centre stage in your lives by reclaiming the spot of the ultimate go-to book for all your life's problems. Then, you will no longer feel the need to seek refuge in other man-made self-help books. Q - WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK SPECIAL? A - This is the ONLY book of its kind that has the Quran etiquette taken exclusively from the Quran and Authentic Ahadith. Moreover, full references are provided in the footnotes along with the hadith grading, so readers can check the sources themselves if they want. The book also addresses many misconceptions surrounding the handling and recitation of the Quran. This will prevent the readers from making those mistakes when approaching the Noble Quran. Q - WHY DID I WRITE THIS BOOK? A - Five years ago, when I first received the request from my sister to put together a book on Quran etiquette, most of the published work on Quran etiquette was filled with personal opinions. That is why; I decided to put together this book and spent countless hours to make sure that all the etiquette which I covered in it were exclusively taken from the Quran and Authentic Sunnah. Q - HOW SHOULD THE READERS TREAT THIS BOOK? A - This book should be treated as a constant companion of the Quran and should be in every house that contains the Glorious Quran. When the Quran is approached in a befitting manner, it will move and soften the hardest of hearts by the Mercy of Allah.

A Thematic Commentary on the Qur an Book Review:

In a multi-faith world, Islam is widely regarded as dogmatic and exclusivist. Yet in the Qur’an we have a great and worthy example of how to live in diversity, of powerful scriptural tenets that lend themselves precisely to engagement with those of other faiths. As such Islam has much to add to the debate on Religious Pluralism. For Muslims the issue is a delicate one. Aside from being tolerant and respectful of other faiths, advocating freedom of faith, and peaceful coexistence for all humanity, Muslims have to intellectually engage on matters of religious truth whilst defending the validity of their own Islamic tenets. This study is focused on the Qur’anic text. It explores the Qur’anic conception of normative religious pluralism with a view to providing answers to questions such as whether the Qur’an itself regards normative religious pluralism as a value system or simply a method through which the Qur’anic world view can be actualized. In doing so the author corrects some highly controversial misquoted, mistranslated, and/or quoted out of context verses of the Qur’an, including the so-called verse of the sword and the perception of not taking non-Muslims as friends. In reality, the Qur’an calls for freedom of faith and peaceful coexistence, but condemns oppression, religious persecution, and those who initiate hostilities. In this way it not only invokes human dignity, but restores it when it is violated.
