Reflections on the Qur'an: Commentaries on Selected Verses
Commentaries on Selected Verses
The Qur'an is believed by Muslims to be the final word of God revealed to humanity through Prophet Muhammad speaking to all humans for all times. This nature of Islam's holy book brings along a continuous study of it so that its injunctions are reinterpreted according to constantly changing times and conditions of our world. This book presents such interpretations from a respected Muslim scholar who explains verses for the modern age. Gülen is well-informed of the classical exegetical discipline; nevertheless in this book he keeps his explanations short and to the point, not to tire away readers. The book does not cover all the verses of the Qur'an, but selected ones, those relate most to the human existence on earth, life after death, and stories revealed in the holy book.
