It is a pleasant task for me to review the book, Analysis of the Quran authored by Salahuddin Ahmed, a noted scholar in the realm of Quranic studies and research. Surely it is imperative to know and realise the meanings and implications of the actual words used by Allah in the Quran for our guidance in our worldly life and Hereafter. Keeping in mind those readers whose mother tongue is not Arabic, the author has provided English transliteration of the Ayats of the Quran used in the narration of it. For authentic Arabic transliteration, the author has used the Times New Arabic Font. We are hopeful that his clarity in the Quranic research has culminated in the present book, - a quintessential quality that the author has attained through perseverance and devotion to this eternal subject. The entire purpose of this book is to take interest in reading the Quran to prepare one to make him knowledgeable and better equipped in performing his obligatory duties in this world and discharging his accountability in the Hereafter.
The book contains as many as 31 chapters making it useful from the point of view of a large number of topics in the Quran. The book not only covers the core topics like Allah, Muhammad (S), Islam, Quran, Hereafter, but also the worldly topics like marriage, social life and duties, character positive and negative traits. Viewing humbly, the book presents us a balanced perspective of our earthly life and the eternal life in the Hereafter in the light of the Quran.
The book has been presented in a brilliantly simple, lucid and unaffected way that can be readily accessed and absorbed. I strongly recommended the book to all serious readers of the Quran for a blissful reading of the book.
The author, Salahuddin Ahmed, a Barrister-at-law of Lincoln’s Inn and a retired law academic from the University of NSW, Australia has published more than a dozen titles from New Delhi, Kuala Lumpur, London, New York, besides Dhaka. Two of his books are Google books, which are available in the Internet for readers' viewing.
The present book has been published by the well-reputed Indian publisher APH Publishing Corporation of New Delhi.
The book is beautifully bound with attractive jacket containing 347 pages. The book can be purchased from the Website of Amazon.com for Indian Rupees 1,659.
