In this commentary of the Sūrah ‘Aalaq, Amīn Ahsan Islāhī has made a very valuable contribution to the exegetical literature of Muslims. Apart from probing the first revelation claim regarding this sūrah and explicating meanings of some significant words like ‘iqrā, he has given a fresh insight into the interconnectedness of the sūrah’s verses.

Sūrah Āl-i ‘Imrān (42-63)

This is an annotated translation of twenty verses of Sūrah Ālay-‘Imrān by Jāved Ahmad Ghāmidī. These verses narrate the anecdote of God’s communication with Mary regarding her purity and exaltedness, and her divinely ordained pregnancy. This is followed by Jesus’ ministry, his earnest calls to the Israelites, their ruthless rejection of his message and the punishment of ignominy stamped upon them. Finally, the Israelites of the Prophet’s times are invited to invoke, along with believers, God’s wrath for whoever is on the wrong side.
