In The Shade of The Qur’an Vol.17 (Al-Jumu’ah, Surah Al-Mursalat) – Special Offer: The complete collection of all currently available translations in English. Since its 1400-year anniversary, the Qur’an is a source of inspiration and guidance, as well as a point of reference and a rich source for social and moral dynamism. It has been believed to be the immutable word and will forever remain so.
It seems like every generation is able to find a new way to understand the Qur’an’s universal messages and gain a deeper understanding of them from a modern perspective. The Shade Of The Qur’an offers more than just another commentary. It isn’t too far-reaching and outlandish to be considered a new interpretation.
It’s a sincere, honest, and sober examination of man’s current achievements and problems in light of the Qur’an’s message. It is an attempt to vigorously explore its rich wisdom and expand its invaluable guidance in the interest of a more’sophisticated’ but highly perplexed society.
