We are living in a time when the need to center our lives on something resolute is most urgent and compelling. The Qur’an, the word of God, the Book that has not been changed, updated, or amended in 1400 years is that. For without this we will never give meaning to our existence in this world and discover ourselves and our place in it.
The first group of surahs in the Qur'an (al-Fatihah, al-Baqarah, Al ‘Imran, al-Nisa’ and al-Ma’idah) are introduced and examined in this volume, with the author looking at their structure and major themes. The central theme of which is conferring the status of ummah(Muslim community) on the believers, to which a new Shariah (legal guidance) was given and a complete code of life was promulgated.
Written in a clear and simple manner this book offers much valuable material, as well as explanatory notes and key words. It is suitable for readers interested in the Islamic vision in the Qur’an.
