Details:  The Names of the Qur'anic Chapters : Their Origins and Meanings,
[A5] Paperback - 97 pages,
by Dr. Shetha al-Dargazelli (al-Qadiri).
Published by Luna Plena, UK.

Product Description :

Being the holy book of Islam and the centre of veneration of Muslims, the Qur’an has extensively been studied by Muslim scholars. This interest developed ‘Ulum Al-Qur’an” or “the Sciences of the Qur’an” into a discipline that comprehensively studied every aspect of the Book of Allah. This book focuses on one of those sciences, which is studying the names of the chapters (suras) of the Qur’an. It explains where each chapter name has come from and tries to identify naming patterns.

The book is divided into two main parts. The first contains seven chapters each of which focuses on certain elements of the subject. The second part analises in detail the name of each of the 114 Qur’anic chapters.


The Meanings and Origins of the Names of the Qur'anic Chapters :

     ***An introduction to the Qur’an,
     ***Ahadith where the Prophet, May Allah bless him & grant him peace,
           refers to chapters by their names,
     ***Chapters that have two names,
     ***The Qur’anic origin of the chapter names,
     ***Where the names appears in their respective chapters,
     ***Categorisation of the meanings of the chapter names.
