The interpretation of The Gracious Qur'an is thoroughly guided by wide and deep experience with the civilizations of both luminous Islam and the enlightened west, while not unmindful of the light that infuses the world’s brilliant traditions. Fully four decades of scholarly expertise in Qur'anic studies and related disciplines are in its service, and the latest advances in the art of translation conspicuously benefit it.
The Gracious Qur'an opens a cosmic vista on the sacred in the English language. Through it, men and women of all faiths can gaze at the authentic world of the Qur'an and glimpse the Divine intent for humanity in this brief life and into the infinite Hereafter.
At the very least, it promises to enrich the understanding of the inquiring minds and expand the awareness of the contemplative about the worldview and vision of the fast-growing faith-community of the way of Islam, religion of peace and willing submission to the true and only God.
