Beams of Illumination from the Divine Revelation
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

This is a commentary on Juz alí-Amma, the final section of the Glorious Qur`an. Juz al-ĎAmma begins with Surat an-Naba and ends with Surat an-Nas, and it contains the greatest number of surahs (37) of any juzí. Most of these surahs were revealed in Mecca and contain some of the earliest revelations.

These early surahs are primarily concerned with aspects of haqiqah, the inner reality of creation, but also contain illuminative descriptions of the outer reality and the laws governing existence. Powerful and graphic descriptions of the destruction of this world and the approach of the next life are presented in Juz al-ĎAmma.

Heart of the Qur`an and the Perfect Mizan
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

A vivid commentary on Surah Yā Sīn, considered the heart of the Qur`an. It is the surah which is read over the dead, so it is a surah of great importance to the living. If we want to know the meaning of life, we have to experience death, for we have come from non-life, and we are proceeding towards it again at a swift rate...The knowledge of a situation, or of a destiny, depends upon the condition of our hearts. If the condition of our hearts is pure and receptive, we suddenly see perfection in all aspects of the situation we find ourselves in.

Keys to the Qur`an
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

These commentaries on several essential chapters of the Qur`an are based on Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeriís teachings in the West. These explorations of selected chapters of the Qur`an are aimed at those seeking guidance and transformation in the modern world.

In the Qur`an we see the laws which govern the experiential, physical world as well as the subtle hidden worlds above and below. The Qur`an tells the story of creation from before creation to beyond the end of creation. It takes one to its sourceóthe timeless, boundless, All-Encompassing Absolute Creator.

Keys to the Qur`an are based on discourses given by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri in America and Europe. These 5 volumes look to the Qur`an for existential guidance and direction in this life. They do not resemble other traditional commentaries. From the Qur`an they seek a way of living that will enable humankind, here and now, to travel courageously, purposefully and humbly toward enlightenment and awakening.

The Light of Iman From the House of Imran
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

The Qur`an reflects the absolute truth in all aspects. In its garden one hears the eternal song of mercy, love and the oneness of creational reality. In the Qur`an we see the laws which govern the experiential, physical world as well as the subtle, hidden world.

The Light of Iman From the House of Imran looks to the eternal garden of Qur`an through an existential angle, seeking guidance and direction for safe conduct in this life. It does not follow the traditional tafāsīr (commentaries), for its attempt is to seek from the Qur`an the knowledge of a way of living that will enable man, here and now, during his short lifetime, to travel courageously, purposefully and humbly toward his noble destiny, his Creator.

The Qur`an in Islam
Allamah Tabatabai
Translated by Dr. Asadullah Yate

From a general discussion of the Holy Qur`an's essential relevance to humanity, stressing God's guidance of all His creatures toward happiness and well-being, the author proceeds to show how the Qur`an contains the fundamental roots of Islam and the proof of prophethood as the Word of God. Copious quotations from the Qur`an are given to illustrate its teachings, its exoteric and esoteric dimensions and the meaning of exegesis. The eternal validity of Qur`anic revelation is examined in depth, together with the attitudes of both Muslim and non-Muslim writers to the questions of Revelation and Prophethood. The relationship of the Qur`an to the sciences shows to what extent it encourages us to study all manner of natural and physical sciences, as well as philosophy, literature and every available branch of knowledge. The book closes with a brief description of how the Qur`an has come down to us.
