Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tenets of Islam cannot be grasped without a proper understanding of the Qur'an. In this important new introduction, Muhammad Haleem examines its recurrent themes -- life and eternity, marriage and divorce, peace and war, water and nourishment — and for the first time sets these in the context of the Qur'an's linguistic style. Professor Haleem examines the background to the development of the surahs (chapters) and the ayahs (verses) and the construction of the Qur'an itself. He shows that popular conceptions of Islamic attitudes to women, marriage and divorce, war and society, differ radically from the true teachings of the Qur'an.

About the Author

Muhammad Abdel Haleem is Professor of Islamic Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. His Introduction to the Qur'an is also published by I.B.Tauris.
