Love in the Holy Qur'an : 7th Edition

 Love in the Holy Qur'an :
Expanded 7th Edition,
*[A5+] Large Paperback - 430 pages,
by HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad,
Published by The Islamic Texts Society,
Cambridge, UK.


Description :

The author treats in a simple and accessible style, with reader-friendly and teaching-friendly features, not only of love of God and love of the neighbour, but also of family love; friendship; the stages of falling in love; sexual love; extra-marital love; beauty; taste and much more – all based entirely on the Holy Qur’an. At least one verse from every chapter – and over one fifth of the total text of the Holy Qur’an – is cited. Love in the Holy Qur’an is written and structured both to be read in its totality or as individual ‘stand-alone’ chapters to be sampled at will. This work is thus essential reading not only for Muslims and those interested in Islam and the Holy Qur’an, but for all those interested in the secrets and mysteries of love as such.

H.R.H. Prince Ghazi of Jordan is a Professor of Islamic Philosophy, and is well known as an interfaith activist and author. He obtained his BA from Princeton University in 1988 Summa cum laude, his first PhD from Cambridge University, UK, in 1993, and his second PhD from Al-Azhar University in Cairo.  In 2001 he established the Great Tafsir Project, the largest online project for exegesis of the Holy Qur’an, and in 2008 he founded the World Islamic Sciences and Education University. He is the author of ‘Three Articles of the Amman Message’ in 2005; the author of the historic open letter ‘A Common Word Between Us and You’ in 2007, and the author of the World Interfaith Harmony Week United Nations General Assembly Resolution in October 2010. Love in the Holy Qur’an is a translation of (the expanded 7th edition of) his Al-Azhar University PhD thesis.
