Fi Zilal al-Quran


Fi Zilal al-Qur'an (Arabic: في ظِلالِ القرآن‎, romanized: fī ẓilāl al-qur'ān, lit. 'In the Shade of the Qur'an') is a highly influential commentary of the Qur'an, written during 1951-1965 by the Egyptian Sayyid Qutb (1906-1966), a leader within the Muslim Brotherhood. He wrote (or re-wrote) most of the original 30 volumes (114 Surahs) while in prison following an attempted assassination of Egyptian dictator Gamal Abdel Nasser in 1954. The book outlines Qutb's vision of a Muslim state and society. It is considered by some to be a comprehensive and far-reaching commentary that takes a clear and lucid interpretation of the Qur'an. It has much influence throughout the Muslim world, especially amongst the ordinary lay practitioners of Islam in the Arab world.The work extends to 30 volumes that correspond to the 30 juz' parts of the Qur'an. It has been translated into several languages, including English, French, German, Urdu, Turkish, Indonesian, Persian, Malayalam and Bengali. The full set of volumes covers the entire Qur'an.
