Description:

TOWARDS UNDERSTANDING THE QUR'AN is a fresh and highly readable English rendering of Tafhim al-Qur'an, Sayyid Mawdudi's monumental and masterly Urdu translation and commentary. Here is a Tafsir with a difference, by a scholar of an entirely different sort. An immense wealth of profound understanding of the Qur'an is here, so is a vast treasure of knowledge and deep insights, illuminating historical accounts and philological discussions, and a highly systematic exposition of social, political, economic and legal teachings. But what makes this Tafsir unique is that it translates the Qur'an into a book to be lived by, a mission to be lived for, and a duty that a reader can no longer evade or postpone. This rare quality is imparted not only by the depth of his scholarship and style of exposition, but also because Sayyid Mawdudi lived by what he expounded, as his life abundantly proves. This Tafsir answers contemporary questions, and makes the Qur'an fully relevant to the concerns of our day, yet it loses nothing of its timelessness nor sacrifices any of the traditional understanding. It demonstrates the unity and coherence of the Qur'an by centreing everything in it on its message, like gems hung on a single string. Each Sarah is prefaced by an account of its background and teachings: Maps and indexes add greatly to the understanding. To sum up: in this Tafsir, Sayyid Mawdudi is offering us what we need most to understand and live by the Qur'an.
ZAFAR ISHAQ ANSARI, Director General, Institute of Islamic Research, International Islamic University, Islamabad, Pakistan, was born and completed his early education in undivided India. He obtained his M.A. in Economics from the University of Karachi, and later his M.A. and Ph.D. from McGill University, in Islamic Studies, with specialization in Islamic History and Islamic Jurisprudence. Prior to his assignment in Islamabad, he has been associated with the University of Karachi; King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah; King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran; Princeton University; University of Chicago; Melbourne University and McGill University in connection with teaching and research. He has contributed a host of research papers to journals of international fame and articles to Encyclopaedia Britannica and Encyclopaedia of Religion. He also co-edited with K. Ahmad, Islamic Perspectives: Studies in Honour of Sayyid Abul A'la Mawdudi (Leicester, Islamic Foundation, 1979). THE ISLAMIC FOUNDATION is an educational and research organization devoted to making Islam a living reality in our age. For this purpose, it aims to improve human communication and develop a better understanding of Islam among all people of the world, Muslim and non-Muslim, so as to galvanize man to the message and ideal of One God and the unity of mankind, as brought by all the Prophets of God throughout the ages, last of whom was the Prophet Muhammad (blessings of Allah and peace be on him).

Towards Understanding the Quran Vol: 9 (Tafhim al-Quran)

Mawdudi Abul A'la

This English rendering of "Tafhim al-Qur'an" aims to answer contemporary questions and make the Qur'an relevant to the concerns of the day. Each "surah" is prefaced by an account of the backgrounds and teachings. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The problem is further complicated when our enemies operate in such a covert manner that we are unaware of their tactics and plan of attack. Such is the state of our daily confrontations with our greatest enemies: Shaytan (the devil) and our nafs (carnal desires).

The War Within Our Hearts was written with the purpose of showing Muslim youth in the West that they are not alone in the problems they are facing today. As integration and assimilation to society is increasing within the Muslim community, youth are battling a variety of enemies that were not faced by their parents. By recognizing that these problems are not unique to an individual but are common place for Muslim youth today, this book will address certain issues which would have otherwise been avoided. Although this book does not necessarily provide answers to all issues, the goal of this book is to provide a platform for us to begin dialogue on these issues in order to get closer to our Creator.

By Customer Services on 13.06.2012
As-Salamu Alaikum, I recently ordered the set of 10 volumes of the tafim ul quran in english called, "towards understanding the quran". I have noticed that the last volume does not have a number like the first 9. It is called, "Part 30", rather than "volume 10", and there is gap in the surahs they both cover. Volume 9 covers 33-37, and Part 30 covers surahs 78-114. I am just wondering about surah's 38-77. Do volume(s) exist to cover that range? If so, do you know if they are still in production? Would you happen to know how I can get those volumes? Many thanks. Jazak Allah Khair Ayaz
By Ayaz Hussain on 10.10.2010
I think the answer to the question is that the last part: Juz 30 was published before all other books and so does not follow the same numbering pattern.
By Customer Services on 14.10.2010
this set consists of 7 volumes. do these 7 volumes cover chapters 1 thru 114?? ive heard that this set only covers half of the holy Quran because the other half has not yet been translated into english.
By thomas on 10.08.2006
This 7 volumes covers surah 1 to 28.
By Customer Services on 10.08.2006
