Description

The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation sheds new and much needed light on the message of the Qur'an; light hitherto impeded by dogma originating entirely outside the Qur'anic narrative, but required by Traditionalist Islam. Traditionalist Islam claims: - That the Qur'an may be understood only by reference to a later literature called the hadith - That, taken together, the Qur'an and the hadith provide the foundation for what is called Islam - That Islam is a religion in the sense of prescribed dogma, rite and custom - That by adhering to Islam one aligns oneself with the guidance contained in the Qur'an - That Islam's emphasis on a Caliphate under Sharia Law originates in the Qur'an The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation illustrates where and how such claims - as well as others Traditionalist Islam makes - are at unambiguous variance with the Qur'an. The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation employs a systematic method of lexical evaluation, one which accepts the Qur'an's internal definitions of key words as binding, and derives the meanings of other key terms on the basis of pan-textual comparison and analysis - which values it then enforces with rigid consistency across the entire translated text. The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation also draws the reader's attention to the substance of the Qur'anic narrative in areas long disregarded by the religion which today claims monopoly rights over it, including: - Muhammad as a fallible man, one whose knowledge of God was limited to the Qur'anic revelation - The Qur'an's emphasis on piety and good works as desirable irrespective of group affiliation - The absence - contrary to the Traditionalist's expectations - of an external saviour figure - The existence and features of God's time-honoured protocol for destroying tyrannical systems - The implication that God's warranted destruction of evil is contingent upon actions by believers The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation (Reference Edition - English Only) features: - Largest possible font sizes for both translation and notes - Unobtrusive system of references linking 9,000 notes with the corpus of the translation - Appendix comprising twenty-four articles which expand on points referenced in the notes - Cohesive and -comprehensive explanation of the historically elusive muqattaʿat - Logical numbering conventions designed to expedite navigation across content Quranite publications for 10% less than on Amazon: quranite.com/store
