A Tentative Guide to the Themes of the Surahs of the Qur’an
In this seminal work, the author suggests that each chapter of the Qur’an contains at least one distinct theme that underlies—and shows the logical connection—between every verse of that chapter.
In this seminal work, the author suggests that each chapter of the Qur’an contains at least one distinct theme that underlies—and shows the logical connection—between every verse of that chapter. Moreover, he proposes that the chapters themselves taken together make up a deliberate and unique portrait of human beings and of the spiritual life. Finally, the author argues that the secrets to the themes are contained and shown in the hadith literature describing the spiritual rewards and effects (fada’il) of various chapters of the Qur’an.

This thesis on the thematic sequence of the Holy Qur’an is truly a pioneering endeavor to gain insight into this intricate subject. I . . . have found that the sequence of verses in the light of the proposed theme seems logical and beautifully described.

In this short work, Prince Ghazi has outlined an approach to reading the Qur’an which has the potential to enhance the understanding of seekers from East and West, and enrich their appreciation of the message of each surah. Among its fresh insights is the connection between the themes of particular surahs and the virtues (fada’il) narrated attached to them in Islamic tradition.

This is my 2nd purchase of this gem of a book. I recently gave my 1st copy to a dear friend who alos enjoyed it! It's too good of a book not to have it in your personal library! Must have and a bargain price! My only bother was that Prince Ghazi needs to finish the book! May Allah accept him and his books! Ameen.
