Abstract:

This latest edition of Discovering the Qur'an includes a new preface
by the author. Used by students around the world as a reliable guide
to reading a translation of the Qur'an, it shows how the Qur'an is
experienced by Muslims, describing the rhythmic and rhyme scheme
structures, the context in which it is heard, the part played by
learning by heart, and the importance of calligraphy. It is also about
the Qur'an and its relationship to Muhammed, as well as helping to
divine the ordering of the 'surahs' or chapters. In an
English-speaking world newly sensitized to Islam and its believers,
Discovering the Qur'an will be an invaluable tool to greater
understanding.
