In this 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. 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 different chapters of the Qur’an.
This is a nice, short book for readers looking for a brief guide to the themes in the Surahs.
Reviews of this book:
‘This thesis on the thematic sequence of the Qur’an is truly a pioneering endeavour 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.’
—Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani
‘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.’
—Dr Sohaib Saeed, the Centre for Advanced Study of the Quran and its Interpretation
