Description from the publisher:
Allah describes the Qur?an as the â€˜guidance to mankind; and the Criterion (of right and wrong)' (2:185). Islamic scholars have therefore sought to explain the sciences associated with correctly understanding the revelation. This discipline has come to be known as ?ulum al-Qur?an; or â€˜sciences of the Qur?an'; and includes many subjects; such as the nature and order of revelation; explanations of the types of expressions used in the revelation and how the sacred text is to be correctly recited. Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyu?i wrote one of the leading comprehensive manuals on ?ulum al-Qur?an; entitled al-Itqan fi ?Ulum al-Qur?an. The text here translated is a summary by ?ala? ad-Din Arqahudan of many major topics covered in the Itqan.
