About The Book
This English translation of the tafsir of Surah al-Fatihah and Surah al-Baqarah is part of the eight-volume Urdu tafsir, Tadabbur-e-Qur’an (Pondering over the Qur’an). This tafsir is based on the principle of coherence, and is perhaps the first sustained and successful attempt to demonstrate such coherence and to refute the oft-repeated allegation of the lack of order or integrity in the Qur’an.
Without recognising and appreciating the coherence of the Qur’an, one may gain knowledge of certain commandments and teachings but will remain ignorant of the Qur’anic wisdom (hikmah) contained in its beautifully integrated and holistic message.
The Urdu original was first published in 1967, the result of the life-long work of Amin Ahsan Islahi (1904-1997), a pre-eminent scholar of the Qur’an.
About The Author
Amin Ahsan Islahi was born in 1904 in Azamgarh, India. There, he was a student, and later a long-serving teacher at the Madrasatu-Islah which specialised in Arabic and Qur'anic studies. A leading Islamic scholar who made Pakistan his home, he was able to draw on what he learned from his own teacher, Imam Hamiduddin Farahi, combining this with a deep understanding of the Arabic language and startlingly original and independent insights.
First published in Urdu in 1967, this translation will inspire and reinspire students of the Qur'an who rely on the English language in accessing Islamic source material. Islahi died in Lahore in 1997.
The present volume covers the first two chapters of the Qur'an, Surah Al-Fatihah and Surah Al-Baqarah. It serves as an important resource for students of the Qur'an because its contents are structured into logical sections and subsections with respect to theme and content. Each portion can thus be studied on a week-by-week or other regular basis in a systematic manner.
The whole approach is to welcome enquiring and questioning minds to engage with the message of the Qur'an.
