About the Book: This Atlas is new in its subject, a subject that has not been touched before. It helps whoever recites the Qur’an or studies it to specify the locations mentioned by the Noble Verses and to mark those places of ancient people mentioned in the Qur’an. This is besides locating areas where the incidents of the prophetic Seerah occurred. Eventually the diligent reader will easily recognize those places, learn about them, and take heed of them while reciting. Eventually the reader will easily recognize those places, learn about them, and take heed of them while reciting.
The Atlas has also revealed obscure places we used to pass through inattentively, like the site where Nuh’s Ark settled, the site of the curved Sand-hills, the cave of the young faithful men, the houses of Madyan, the site of Sodom and other places determined by the Atlas depending on reliable sources. Thus the Atlas eliminates all the guessing and the fantasies we used to encounter when reciting the Noble Quran, and takes us to the specific place.
Ammar Awais –
I found the ‘Atlas of the Quran’ extremely useful for the reason that it contains very precise references. For example, if I want to know what the Quran says about Prophet Yahya (AS), I can simply look up his name in the contents, and the chapter on him would mention all the Quranic verses about him. Moreover, whatever the Quran says about him is also summarised in the following chapter to give the reader an excellent overview on the topic. All important personalities, places, and events mentioned in the Quran have been covered. This is a must-have book for anyone wanting to study the Quran at any level.
