A unique and modern contribution to understanding the Quran, A Thematic Comentary by the late Shaykh al-Ghazali is a significant contribution to the first reading, i.e. that of the Qur'an - the repository of divine truth and enlightenment. A unique and modern contribution to understanding the Quran, unlike traditional approaches because it focuses on the organic unity of each sura, highlighting the logic or inherent reasoning that courses through the surah and unifies its various components and images. The author's cogent method of interpretation takes account of the fact and each surah has its unique coherent and integral character, defined by a main subject or theme of topics. Once this is defined, the rest of the surah comes together like the pieces of a puzzle. This wonderful approach makes the beauty of the surah come alive and the reader gains a greater understanding of its meaning and flow.
