Atlas of the Qur’ân – Dr Shauqi Abu Khalil

Posted by Hashim Abd Ghani On 6:45 AM

This Atlas is new in its subject, a subject that has not been touched before. Its helps whoever recites the Noble Qur’ân or studies it to specify the locations mentioned by the Noble Verses, and to mark those places of ancient people mentioned in the Noble Qur’ân. 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 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 (Al – Ahqaf), the Cave of the young faithful men, the house of Midian, 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 Qur’ân, and takes us to the specific place.
