    One thought on “Major Themes of the Qur'an”

    1. Bagus, dan sangat disarankan kepada muslimin muslimat sekalian untuk baca Bahkan, boleh disyorkan pada pandangan saya kepada yang belum islam.Pun begitu, berhati hati kerana ada beberapa tempat penulis merujuk kepada ibn Ishaq, yang periwayatannya boleh dipertikai dan diragui.

    2. The author in my opinion is a gifted scholar and I was impressed by the way he presented the major themes of the Quran and they are 1 God 2 Man as Individual 3 Man in Society 4 Nature5 Prophethood and Revelation 6 Eschatology7 Satan and Evil 8 Emergence of The Muslim CommunityThe only disappointment was when he says and I qoute The Qur n will tolerate strongman rule only as a temporary arrangement if people are immature, for how can a society whose people remain immature produce mature leaders p [...]

    3. A great thematic overview of the quran unlike any book written in the English language Dr Rahman writes with an astute clarity and a sharp pen, and he assumes the reader can follow along Each of the ideas are supported by a plethora of verse quotations and annotations Even in his controversial opinions see the chapter on Prophethood and Revelation , Dr Rahman maintains his scholarly clarity and illuminates his thoughts for the reader Dr Fazlur Rahman has produced a supreme achievement in this b [...]

    4. Ok, I think I may have said this a few times about other books previously, but now, this book earns the title of the best book I have read this year and also the best book I have read on the Qur an and the history of early Islam so far I will definitely come back to this book many times and will keep many of its points on mind for the rest of my life Eye opener, paradigm shif causer, and just a joy to read A must read for anyone interested in the Qur an imho.

    5. Fazlur Rahman s Major Themes of the Qur an was recommended to me as part of my continuing journey toward learning about Islam It looks like a small book, but I was amazed at how much thought provoking content is packed into its brief 170 pages I read generally a chapter a day, and even that was a too quick tour through it I will certainly return to this one again sometime soon.I liked Rahman s commentary, because it helped me see clearly the differences between Islam ad Christianity The two fa [...]

    6. Zameen muntazir aasman muntazir,Hai sarey ka sara jahan muntazir,Imamat ka deedar in ko miley,Ye mehrab o mimber azan muntazir,Jahan main Ho shams e imamat tuloo,Makan muntazir la makan muntazir,Sunane ko noha Shah e karbala ka,Har ik Shah ka noha khwan muntazir,Chaley zulfiqar e ALI a.s aik baar,Hain sarey he Peer o Jawan muntazir,Areeze main MEHDI ne bas ye likha,Aaiye MOLA hai ye madhha khwan muntazir.

    7. I strongly suggest the readers to have a copy of the Quran or its translation to refer to when reading this book In that way, the readers could see the examples and that would help them to better understand the context of the verses.

    8. I think Fazlurrahman had great insights on how the Quran unfolds itself to us To my surprise we share the same thoughts of taqd r, which makes me love him and recepticle to his words.However, I cannot shake off my disagreement to some of his views that I found rather eccentric Perhaps, if only he has not neglected the Sunnah in a such a venture that offers quite a perplexed view on certain central themes of Islam, I would have been persuaded Still, I do not reject him categorically I m keepin [...]

    9. the books shows that the author can not think or designs doctrines in a systematic thought, he had a leak of logic and order mind to determine ideas for example in first chapter when he talked about God, he can not identify God, or who is he, he just explains God s attributes but the Natural of this God nothing at all.

    10. The only chapter that I read closely for the class I took recently on the Qur an was chapter two on Man as Individual, but based primarily on that chapter, this was possibly my favorite of the many books assigned for the class Rahman s style the way he mixes scholarship, cultural influences, and spirituality really spoke to me I got so much from just this one chapter I anticipate reading from this book now that the class is over.

    11. A different and refreshing perspective on many subjects Especially the way Taqdeer is explained is marvelous The translation of Quranic Verses done by the author quoted in the book is amazingly beautiful.

    12. instead of because it is quiet academic A very serius read if it had been simplier, maybe it would be appealling to readers I find it very informative though, and would wish it would be read by muslims in particular non muslims in genaral.

    13. Best exegesis on the Qur an, in English, that I ve read His understanding of the themes really helps one to settle, and understand what the thrust of the Qur an really is He was just an amazing scholar.
