An enduring classic
work on the etiquette that a Muslim must or should
have with regard to handling and reciting the Qur'an (the Muslim
scripture). The topics this volume raises include: ritual cleanliness,
opportune times for recitation, the etiquette that students have with
their teachers (and that teachers must have with their students), and
variety of other issues that every Muslim should know and frequently ask
about.Extract from the Foreword
The present work was designed and written to explain to men and women how best to benefit from the Book of Allah. The blessing of the Qur'an is that whoever recites it as it should be recited is changed by it, and brought by imperceptible degrees to see why everything is the way it is. The seed of this knowledge is a humble intention to draw nearer to the Divine, the soil in which it takes root are reverence, awe, and love, and its fruit is the certitude in the eternal truths of faith that bring felicity in this world and the next. It is well known to everyone conversant with the Islamic disciplines that the learning of many things does not teach wisdom, and that traditional books do not reveal their secrets or bestow their benefits to those without the key to them.
This key is adab
, the “right way of doing things,” rendered in the title as “etiquette.”… Books, especially sacred ones, give their knowledge to those of adab
, and Westerns who know something about the sciences of Islam have been waiting for a book like this in English for a long time.''
