A BRILLIANT SURVEY OF THE QUR'AN BY A TOWERING MUSLIM AUTHORITY, AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK. In this book the distinguished Islamic scholar M.A. Draz, one of the Muslim world's most erudite authorities of this century, sets out the fundamental principles of the Qur'an and its much misunderstood and misquoted teachings on gender and women, polygamy, war, faith, Judaism, Christianity and the many other issues on which the Qur'an pronounces.

Review:

'The subject of the book is so significant, and its author and his approach so impressive, that is not only essential reading for scholars of the Qur'an, Islam and comparative religions, but is also of great interest to the general reader. Much has been written about the Qu'ran in English, mainly by non-Muslim scholars: here we have a work by an outstanding Muslim scholar, who combines his deep knowledge of the Qu'ran and Muslim scholarship with an impressive familiarity with French and English works on the subject. This is a book that commends itself to anyone wishing an authoritative, balanced and intellectually engaging introduction to the Qu'ran' --Muhammed Abdel Haleem, King Fahd Professor of Islamic Studies, SOAS, London

'This valuable introduction to the study of the Qur'an provides a rare glimpse of applying modern textual-historical methodology to the study of Muslim scriptures.' --Abdulaziz Sachedina, Frances Myers Ball Professor of Religious Studies, University of Virginia

About the Author:

M. A. Draz obtained his doctorate at the Sorbonne in Paris before returning to Cairo, where he became Professor of Islamic Studies at Al Azhar University. By the time of his death, in 1958, he had established himself as one of the world's leading Islamic scholars. His magnum opus, The Moral World of the Qur'an (2008), is also published by I.B.Tauris.
