The Qur’ān is Allah’s last revelation to mankind; the fruit of all His guidance He has revealed since the beginning of creation. It was revealed to His last and greatest Prophet, Muhammad, through the archangel Gabriel, over a 23-year period. With just over 77,000 words, it is not just a literary masterpiece but a miracle, such that it challenges anyone to imitate it.
Indeed, the greatest Arab orators and linguists were left dumbstruck by its composition and comprehensiveness. Despite its brevity, it is a treasure chest of unending wisdom and meanings, whilst its conciseness rejuvenates the reader.
Throughout the centuries, scholars in the art of tafseer (commentary and exegesis) have, in light of the prevailing times, endeavoured to explain the depth and breadth of the Quran’s eloquent message.
Knowing the Quran is a unique work that brings together key classical and contemporary commentaries to reveal the Quran’s eternal message, namely:
