4 - 6 days availability


This book is written by a retired Iraqi university staff-member who had specialised in English literature. All the Suras (chapters) of The Holy Qur'an are summarised here, preceded by a literary introduction. The book is not a commentary on The Holy Qur'an, nor it is an attempt to impose an interpretive point of view, for that would usurp the function of religion. It is sufficient that the holy book is a fascinating document of enormous importance to the culture and history of mankind. Going beyond that is subject to sectarian controversy. The approach is a literary one and not a theological one. It is intended to be for the English-speaking world.
