Approaching the Qur'an: The Early Revelations

Approaching the Qur'an: The Early Revelations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Approaching the Qurán is a major event in religious publishing. Professor Michael Sells has captured the complexity, power, and poetry of the early suras of the Qurán, the sacred scripture of Islam. In this second edition, Sells introduces important new translations of suras and a new preface that addresses the ongoing controversy over teaching about Islam and the Quran in American universities. Approaching the Qurán presents brilliant translations of the short, hymnic suras associated with the first revelations to the Prophet Muhammad. Most of these early revelations appear at the end of text and are commonly reached only by the most resolute reader of existing English translations. These suras contain some of the most powerful, prophetic and revelatory passages in religious history. They offer the vision of a meaningful and just life that anchors the religion of one-fifth of the worlds inhabitants. Approaching the Qur'án is enriched by inclusion of free downloadable audio recordings of Quranic reciters, allowing readers an opportunity to hear the Qur'án in its original form. The book includes Sells Introduction to the Qurán, commentaries of the suras, a glossary of technical terms, and chapters discussing the sound nature and gender aspects of the Arabic text.
