“Al-Amthal fil Qur’an al-Kareem” – The Applied Examples (Parables) in the Noble Qur’an

by Imam Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

Overview:  There are a number of Ayāt (verses) in the Qur’ān by which Allāh, the Most High, brings greater clarity and insight when explaining things to mankind. This is done through the use of deep and meaningful amthal (parables) that are clear for the human intellect to comprehend and ponder over in order to understand the message fully.

In discussing the unique style and theme and content of the Qur’an, there is little by way of English literature that identifies and explains the invaluable parables found therein. ‘The Applied Examples in the Noble Qur’ān’ is a timely translation of one of the finest, yet concise books written on the topic by one of the most distinguished scholars of the last seven centuries. Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah’s inimitable and distinctive understanding of the Qur’ān and Hadeeth was acknowledged by his peers, while his commentaries and interpretations remain unique in accuracy.

This high quality publication is intended as an introduction to some of the reasons and wisdoms and beauty of a select few, which Allāh uses for a deliberate and poignant purpose. A truly beneficial and inspiring book for all those who seek to create a stronger bond with the Mighty Book of Allāh.
