How To Read The Qur’an

Mona Siddiqui

The Qur’an is regarded by Muslims as the direct word of God, timeless and unchanged. It is used not only for prayer and worship but as a path which can lead the believer to a closer understanding of the essence of their relationship with God. In this thought-provoking, considered study of the scripture of Islam, Mona Siddiqui explores the ‘big themes’ of prophecy, law, sin and salvation from her dual position as a believer and a scholar.
