'Secrets within the Order of the Qur'an' [Asrar Tarteeb al-Qur'an], English & Arabic. This unique book displays the genius of Imam al-Suy???, may Allah be pleased with him, in exegesis of the Qur??n. Through his deep reflection and knowledge of the Qur??n and its related sciences, Al-Suyuti provides insights into why its chapters are ordered so and unveils intricacies to the reader which could only have been unearthed by one possessing such mastery and genius.

The author states at many junctures within the book that he is displaying his reflections to the reader, so one is given the opportunity through this intimate writing style to ponder over the Qur??n from the perspective of a true tafs?r master.


From the Back Cover :

Qat?dah (d.118) said, “By Allah, they would find in the Qur??n that which would impede sinfulness, if only they contemplated upon it and comprehended it.” [Tafs?r al-?abar?].

Al-Shawk?n? (d.1250) said, “Al-Suy??? was a major Im?m, and a prolific author. He was given authorisation (ij?zah) by the major scholars of his time from different countries and towns. He excelled in the various sciences and surpassed his peers; he gained distinction and his acclaim spread far and wide. From his beneficial works are his two J?mi? collections of ?ad?th, al-Durr al-Manth?r and al-Itq?n f? ?Ul?m al-Qur??n.” [Summarised from his biography in al-Badr al-??li? (1/328-335)]

The author said, “[I have aimed to produce an interesting book about a special theme]—that being the rationale of the order of the s?rahs—so it can help and save the time of one who is after such knowledge. Most of its content is from my own thoughts, contemplation and insights since only a few people have touched upon this topic. I have explicitly given reference to that which I used from others, and I would only mention that which is good and would not make me subject to criticism.”
Imam Jalal al-Din as-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.
