Description :

Lubab an-Nuqul fi Asbab al-Nuzul, Reasons & Occasions of the Revelation of the Holy Qur'an. This classical work is Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti'a Asbab an-Nuzul, presented here in English translation with parallel Arabic. Among the most important sources for understanding the Qur’an are the tafsir works, commentaries on the Qur’an, which help to properly explain and contextualise the Revelation.

The Qur’an is the highest code for Muslims in everything relating to their spiritual, religious, ethical, social, and legal matters. One of the sciences of the Qur’an is the “Asbab al-Nuzul”- the occasions, reasons, or causes of revelation. Muslim scholars agree that the revelations of the Qur’an can be divided into two broad types. One type includes passages from the Qur’an which were revealed in response to specific events, incidents or questions put forward to the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. The second type includes passages which were not a direct response to any historical or social development in the life of the Muslim community.


A thorough understanding and full appreciation of the scope of the first type of passages, therefore, depend on knowing the circumstances, facts and details of the events which occasioned them. Such knowledge is an invaluable tool for grasping the meaning of this type of Qur’anic verse.



About Imam al-Suyuti :
He is 'Abd al-Rahman ibn Kamal al-Din Abi Bakr, Jalal al-Din al-Misri al-Suyuti al-Shafi'i al-Ash'ari, also known as Ibn al-Asyuti (849-911), the mujtahid imam and renewer of the tenth Islamic century, foremost hadith master, jurist, Sufi, philologist, and historian, he authored works in virtually every Islamic science.

Born to a Turkish mother and non-Arab father and raised as an orphan in Cairo, he memorized the Qur'an at eight, then several complete works of Sacred Law, fundamentals of jurisprudence, and Arabic grammar; after which he devoted himself to studying the Sacred Sciences under about a hundred and fifty shaykhs.  A giant among contemporaries, he remained alone, producing a sustained output of scholarly writings until his death at the age of sixty-two. He was buried in Hawsh Qawsun in Cairo.
