A Key to Understanding the Qur'an's Eloquence!

Description from the publisher : 

This illuminating guide presents an innovative and contemporary approach to the Qur’an and its philosophy in the Islamic tradition. From the religious time’s purpose and objectives to its rhetoric and eloquence, various aspects of the Qur’an are examined while new insights are provided on the existence and oneness of God, Prophethood, and bodily resurrection.

This was the atmosphere in which Bediüzzaman Said Nursi, a scholar of great importance, found himself when he arrived in Istanbul, the capital of the Ottoman state in 1907. He studied the traditional Islamic sciences, having profoundly immersed his heart and mind in the Qur’an and the Sunna, while at the same time he adopted a unique, individual manner of not asking any questions from living traditional circles, in addition to studying natural sciences and following new developments in sciences and technology.

In the face of the “ avant-garde-ists,” who evidently perceived Islam as a hindrance to development and associated the West’s scientific and military advances with its “negative” outlook on religion, Bediüzzaman Said Nursi declared, “I shall prove to the world that the Qur’an is a spiritual sun that cannot be extinguished.” It was in such an atmosphere that Said Nursi worked toward the construction of an indestructible fortress around the Qur’an, undeterred by the blasts detonated internally or externally, and thus opted to be a tireless servant in the implementation of the Divine declaration,

          “Indeed it is We, We Who send down the Reminder (i.e. the Qur’an),
           and it is indeed We Who are its Guardian
” (al-Hijr, 15:9).

The Reasonings is an indispensable guide for aspirers to knowledge who wish to obtain robust understanding amid the web of decades of dispute, and to unshackle themselves from excess and apathy.

            Extract : If the truth, which has long slept, does not awaken within you
         with this loud voice, and your heart does not open, take scholars such
         as Ibn Humam and 'Fakhr al-Islam' by the hand, and go to Imam
         al-Shafi‘i. Ask him: “The Shari‘a orders the Prayer at five fixed times.
         But in the world there are people in whose country there is sometimes
         no time for the Late Evening or Night Prayer. There are people in other
         countries where the sun does not rise for many consecutive days, or
         does not set during other consecutive days. How do they fast?” Ask
         him again, “ Turning towards the Ka‘ba is compulsory during the Prayer.
         But we can turn toward it only while standing or sitting. How can we turn
         toward the Ka‘ba in other acts of the Prayer such as during bowing and
