Makkan and Madinan Revelations aims to provide an in-depth study of the
Makkan and Madinan revelations of the Qur'an in terms of structure, themes,
linguistic, stylistic and textual analysis of the suras. The main objective
of these analyses is to make the contents of the Qur'an more accessible by
the modern reader.

Firstly to represent the context in which the revelations took place, an
account of the historical background of the two towns Makka and Madina at
the time of the Prophet himself is given. The present discussion presents
the Qur'an in terms of its composition and its status as a Holy Scripture
compared to the previous other two Scriptures. Thus, an insight into the
Makkan suras has been provided: Outlines of its structure, themes,
peculiarities, and textual analysis in terms of tenets of faith of some
selected Makkan suras have been dealt with. Similarly, an insight into the
Madinan suras has also been provided along with structural, thematic and
textual analysis of some selected Madinan suras. Other concepts such as the
'coherence in the Qur'an', 'nazm in the Qur'an' and 'icjaz al-Qur'an' which
are looked at in terms of conceptual chaining between adjacent suras and
ayas have been developed in this study.

The present study provides intriguing comparative and contrastive analyses
of the Makkan and Madinan suras from Muslim and non-Muslim perspectives
which led to 28 highly valuable observations about the study of the two
phases of revelation. The author's approach has thus become different from
classical classification of the suras. It is now based on suras structure,
themes and text linguistics.
