By Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (d. 751H)
There are a numerous verses in the Noble Qur’an by which Allah, the Most
High, brings greater clarity and insight when explaining things to
mankind. This is done through the use of deep and meaningful parables
that are clear for human intellect to comprehend, ponder over and
understand the message of the Qur’an.
It is from His infinite Wisdom that Allah destined these parables to
become rooted in His Final Revelation, until the Last Day - through
these divinely revealed verses mankind can increase in knowledge,
recognise guidance and embrace the truth.
This book explains many parables in the Qur’an, in such depth –
exquisitely and beautifully. It is an amazing work that will get the
intellect thinking and pondering over the beauty and precisions of the
Magnificent Qur’an, guiding mankind to the straight path. Not only is
this work an intellectual discourse, but also a spiritual enlightenment
for every Muslim.
In discussing the unique style, theme and content of the Qur’an - this
is the first work of its kind in English literature.
