The Opening and Other Meccan Revelations: Selections from al-Bahr al-Madid
Ahmad Ibn Ajiba, translated by Abdul Aziz Suraqah
Paperback, 73 pages
Renowned for its unique style, In Ajiba's commentary of che Quran, Al Bahr al-Madid (The Vast Ocean) combines traditional exegesis with spiritual contemplation, exploring the inner meanings of the sacred text. In this companion volume to our inaugural publication Prophetic Grace, In Ajiba explores the outer and inner meanings of the most important and most commonly read chapter of the Quran, Sura al-Fatiha, as well as the shorter chapters of the Quran that are read daily by children and adults alike, in homes and in mosques throughout the world.
In these selected commentaries, the reader can begin to appreciate the depth and transformative power of what are perhaps the best known chapters of the Quran.
