About The Book

Allah describes the Qur'an as the ‘guidance to mankind, and the Criterion (of right and wrong)(2:185). 

Islamic scholars have therefore sought to explain the sciences associated with correctly understanding the revelation. This discipline has come to be known as 'ulum al-Qur'an, or ‘sciences of the Qur'an’, and includes many subjects, such as the nature and order of revelation, explanations of the types of expressions used in the revelation and how the sacred text is to be correctly recited. 

Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuṭi wrote one of the leading comprehensive manuals on 'ulum al-Qur'an, entitled al-Itqan fi 'Ulum al-Qur'an. The text here translated is a summary by Salah ad-Din Arqahudan of many major topics covered in the Itqan.

About The Author

Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti (1425-1505) was a towering ninth-century Egyptian scholar and is considered the reviver of his era, foremost hadith master, jurist, Sufi, philologist, and historian, he authored works in virtually every Islamic science. He was a prolific writer and has over 600 titles to his name—many of which are encyclopaedic in nature and cover almost every science of his day. 

Born to a Turkish mother and non-Arab father and raised as an orphan in Cairo, he memorised the Qur'an at eight, then several complete works of Sacred Law.

He travelled in the pursuit of knowledge to Damascus, the Hijaz, Yemen, India, Morocco, the lands south of Morocco, as well as to centres of learning in Egypt such as Mahalla, Dumyat, and Fayyum. He was some time head teacher of hadith at the Shaykhuniyya school in Cairo at the recommendation of Imam Kamal al-Din ibn al-Humam,  Read More
