Description from the publisher:
Excellence of the Holy Qur’an by late Haji Rahim Baksh, presents a comparative study of Islam with respect to the other existing religions of the world. He researched and reported the basic principles of the religions with great reverence. He also responded to the objections raised by the non-Muslim critics about Oneness of God, finality of Divine revelations to mankind and the institution of Messengership on the Holy Prophet, Muhammad (m.p.b.h.).

sovereignty for all the readers. The Excellence of the Qur’an has been
translated in English in order to promote the understanding of Islam by
all, especially the non-Muslims in the West, because the God, Almighty,
the Holy Prophet (m.p.b.h.). and the Holy Qur’an are for all, from eternity
