For Muslims, the Holy Qur'an is an inexhaustible and hauntingly beautiful source of guidance, consolation and enlightenment. Above all, it is the very Word of God as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad Salallahu Alayhi Wa Salaam and protected for all time against falsification. Muslims' absolute certainty on this point is often difficult for others to comprehend, however majestic and eloquent the text, even in translation.
Shaykh ash Sha'rawi, a distinguished contemporary scholar from Egypt, has written a book designed to be read by Muslims and non Muslims alike. In plain and wholly logical language, Ash Sha'rawi presents objective and well documented evidence of the miraculous nature of the Qur'an.
The Miracles of the Qur'an, now presented in a fluent English translation, is divided into three parts. Part one discusses the nature of miracles and examines those linguistic and rhetorical characteristics of the Holy Qur'an which Muslims believe - and history has shown to be inimitable by man. In parts two and three the author demonstrates, by profound analysis of numerous passages from the text, that the Qur'an contains irrefutable proof of its direct revelation from Allah, the Omniscient Creator.
This authoritative and highly readable book is essential reading for anyone concerned in understanding the nature if the Holy Scripture of Islam.
