About this title


In this translation of a portion of the fiqh section of the Futuhat al-Makkiyyah, at least two startling key issues emerge. Being startled, in itself, is the first key. And the second is the'arabic language' which means that language which the original audience of the Qur'an understood. Also startling are all the twists and turns, all the secrets and mysteries, all the bizarre and strange permutation of the original text.

Although the translation is quite literal and over 300 pages, with careful reading, special academic preparation is not necessary. This book is a spiritual and intellectual treat, and a great hope for a more authentic and deep Islamic discourse.

About the Author:

Eric Winkel, an expert in Arabic language and Islamic studies, has taught at several universities in the United States, the Middle East, and Pakistan.
