Summary
Since publication, The Story of the Qur'an has received praise for its sensitivity, scholarship, and carefully balanced portrayal of the study of the Qur'an and its place in historic and contemporary Muslim society. Islamic scholar Ingrid Mattson now updates her work through the addition of expanded sections on the Qur'an in art and architecture, in the life cycle of Muslims, and in Islamic ethics and law. Through a close examination of the doctrines in the Qur'an, Mattson reveals their significance to individual Muslims and the societies in which they live. Other key themes addressed include the Qur'an's most important historical interpretations, significant figures who transmitted and taught the sacred scripture over the centuries, and the influence of the Qur'an on major aspects of Muslim society -- including personal relationships, popular culture, political movements, science, and literature
