From the Back Cover:

The Study Quran is a historic and groundbreaking work, produced by a distinguished team of Islamic studies scholars led by Seyyed Hossein Nasr, which offers 

  • A new English translation of the Quran that is accurate, accessible, and reliable in how it renders this sacred text
  • A wide-ranging verse-by-verse commentary that brings together the most respected and distinguished traditions of metaphysical, spiritual, theological, and legal interpretation of the Quran within Islam
  • A helpful introduction to each surah that provides an overview and background of its teachings 
  • Essays by fifteen internationally renowned scholars on how to read and understand the Quran and its role in shaping Islamic civilization
  • A beautiful two-color, two-column design that presents the sacred text and commentary in the spirit of traditional Quran manuscripts
  • Maps, a time line of historical events, comprehensive indexes, and other features to aid reading 

The Study Quran provides a service never before available to readers of English: a scholarly yet accessible resource where one can quickly and easily explore how Muslims have interpreted the Quran through the centuries to the present day. An invaluable resource for scholars and students of all backgrounds, and especially to Muslims who want to deepen their understanding of their own tradition, The Study Quran is a much-needed guide in a time when confusion about the Quran and Islam is so prevalent. 

About the Author:

Seyyed Hossein Nasr is university professor of Islamic Studies at George Washington University. Author of over fifty books, Professor Nasr is a well-known and highly respected intellectual figure both in the West and in the Islamic world. Born in Tehran, raised from the age of twelve in the United States, and a graduate of MIT and Harvard University, Nasr is well qualified to explain Islam to a Western audience.
