The current essays deal with questions on the Holy  Qur’an such as knowledge of the revelation,  knowledge of the Qur’anic text in general, linguistic and rhetoric inimitability of the Holy Qur’an, various dimensions of the Qur’an, plurality or infinity of its significations, etc.

The significance of these discussions lies in the following crucial points. One is that revelation, in principle, considering its being the chain of transmission of the Qur'anic text, enjoys a high level of importance in respect of the studies dealing with the foregoing phenomenon. Another is the nature of revelation, considering its being an unseen channel that thought cannot arrive at its essence as is the case with our limited knowledge of energy, light, etc.

Other points discuss the infinite nature of the Qur’anic significations, unlike the positive social, economic and political views or laws which are characterized by their limitedness in time or place. As for the Holy Qur’an and other similar eternal scriptures, they have been composed in a way that every generation or individual or group can explain and make use of in accordance with one's cultural background.

In what follows are themes relating to the different dimensions of the Holy Qur’an. We hope that the reader examines them closely so as to enrich his knowledge of the greatness of the Holy Qur’an.

It is clear that the Holy Qur’an has treated knowledge on all of  its aspects: human, natural and pure. However, human knowledge counts as richer in its content in comparison to other fields of knowledge. For it relates to man’s conduct and practices on both of the individual and social levels.

In view of the significance of this aspect of knowledge, especially that which is related to religion, Islam, the Qur’an, our Foundation has selected a number of Qur’anic essays translated into English and edited them as well as presented them to our dear readers. We hope that you enjoy the span and variety of these essays and attain a share of divine providence in light of the true notions of the Holy Qur’an.
