It   is   very   important   for   parents   to   take   a   keen   serious   academic   intellectual   interest   in   Islam   AND   that   children   see   their    parent’s   mental   cerebral   engagement   with   Islam   and   parents   include   children   in   this,   parents   must   also   share   this   intellectual   engagement   with   children   and   the   larger   family.  

i   humbly   recommend   the   following   introduction   to   the   Qur’an.

It   is   an   academic   introductory   well   structured   introduction   to   the   complex   phenomenon   that   the   Qur’an   is.   A   study   of   this   book   will   foster   a   greater   appreciation   of   the   Qur’an   and   put   the   reader   on   the   path    to   a   deeper   historical   understanding   of   the   Qur’an.  

REMEMBER:   Intellectually   active   AND   involved   parents   are   crucial   to   a   childs   learning   Islam.

Product Description

The bedrock of the Islamic faith, the Qur’an is revered by Muslims as Allah’s final revelation, offering divine guidance to humankind. A seamless blend of narrative, description, parable, and law, it is a moral code for over a billion people. In this comprehensive study, Anna M. Gade closely examines the sacred text to provide illuminating insights into the many different ways that it has been read and interpreted.

The Qur’an: An Introduction supports English-language readers in their studies by equipping them with a solid foundation in the terminology and methods of traditional Qur’anic analysis. Addressing the format, style, and history of this unique work, it also critically assesses its relevance to the major issues of the day, from politics and gender to conflict and even ecological crisis. Featuring extensive extracts and a handy glossary, this is an indispensable primer for students and scholars, as well as general readers with an interest in Islam’s sacred scripture.
