”...the author’s approach to figure out the logic which binds certain verses in surah to one theme, and all the themes of the surah to each other, represents a genuine and valuable contribution to the library of Tafsir, which makes the Qur’an and its message more comprehensible to readers: Muslims or non-Muslims…” Dr. Fathi Osman

“With a deliberate informality of style, Dr. Khan helps the reader along by drawing attentionto the principal issues, by explicatng key terms, by bringing out aspects of conceptual coherence, and by pointing out trajectories of reflection…”  Professor Mustansir Mir, Youngstown State University

”...Your commentary…has provided me with insight into the nature and purpose of Qur’anic revelation, into the main values and crucial perspectives of the islamic faith, and into the meaning of what it means to be human…”  Dr. A.H. Mathias Zahniser, Professor Emeritus of World Religions, Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky

”...In his textual study of the verses of the Qur’an, in his detailed exegetical notes, Dr. Khan meticulously studies the significance, importance, meaning and suggestiveness of the specific Qur’anic words and expressions.”  Dr. Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Tafsir and islamic Sciences, AMU Aligarh, IIU Kuala Lumpur, and Imam Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University, Saudi Arabia
