The prevailing belief among Muslims is that, because the Qur'an is
the Word of God and God is eternal, it follows that His Word is
also eternal. The belief is based on the postulate that the Word of
God must be of the same nature as God Himself. Mahmoud Hussein
refutes this by showing that it contradicts the very teachings of
the Qur'an. Whereas God transcends time, His Word is inscribed
within time. It is not a monologue, but a living exchange, through
which God reveals to His Prophet different orders of truth, weaving
together the absolute and the relative, the general and the
particular, the eternal and the contingent. An international
bestseller, Understanding the Qur'an today offers a new perspective
on one of the world's most influential texts and adds an invaluable
contribution to the debate on Islam and modernity.
