Methodology for Study of the Qur'an

 Methodology for Study of the Qur'an : New,
*[A5] Paperback - 318 pages, 2nd Edition,
by Imran N. Hosein,
Ansari Memorial Series,
by INH Publications.

Description :

The continuous recitation of the Qur'an, cover to cover, constitutes an essential prerequisite for the study of the Qur'an. Whoever accepts the Qur'an as the revealed Word of the One God and does not continuously recite the Book, would be in disobedience of the very first word revealed in the Book, which was also a divine command, i.e., Read or Recite! Such conduct would qualify as forsaking or abandoning the Qur'an, and the Prophet, ﷺ, himself was made to complain to his Lord-God against such of his followers in a verse of the Qur'an.

And the Messenger of Allah, ﷺ, will say :

"O My Lord-God! Surely my people have forsaken this Qur'an"
(since, among other things, they no longer recite the Qur'an continuously)!
[Al-Furqaan, 25 : 30]

About the Ansārī Memorial Series :

The Ansārī Memorial Series of books is published in loving memory of Mawlānā  Dr. Muhammad Fazlur Rahmān Ansārī, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, (1914-1974) who was a Sufi Shaykh of the Qādiriyyah Sufi Order, a philosopher, an outstanding Islamic scholar of the modern age, a roving missionary of Islam, and my teacher and spiritual mentor of blessed memory.  My  love for him, and my continuously increasing admiration for both his Islamic scholarship as well as his philosophical thought, more than 40 years after his death, is such that I cherish  the very dust on which he walked.  See Islam to the Modern Mind.
