The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation sheds new and much needed light on the message of the Qur'an; light hitherto impeded by dogma originating entirely outside the Qur'anic narrative, but required by Traditionalist Islam.

Traditionalist Islam claims:

– That the Qur'an may be understood only by reference to a later literature called the hadith

– That, taken together, the Qur'an and the hadith provide the foundation for what is called Islam

– That Islam is a religion in the sense of prescribed dogma, rite and custom

– That by adhering to Islam one aligns oneself with the guidance contained in the Qur'an

– That Islam’s emphasis on a Caliphate under Sharia Law originates in the Qur'an

The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation illustrates where and how such claims – as well as others Traditionalist Islam makes – are at unambiguous variance with the Qur'an.

The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation employs a systematic method of lexical evaluation, one which accepts the Qur'an’s internal definitions of key words as binding, and derives the meanings of other key terms on the basis of pan-textual comparison and analysis – which values it then enforces with rigid consistency across the entire translated text.

The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation also draws the reader’s attention to the substance of the Qur'anic narrative in areas long disregarded by the religion which today claims monopoly rights over it, including:

– Muhammad as a fallible man, one whose knowledge of God was limited to the Qur'anic revelation

– The Qur'an’s emphasis on piety and good works as desirable irrespective of group affiliation

– The absence – contrary to the Traditionalist’s expectations – of an external saviour figure

– The existence and features of God’s time-honoured protocol for destroying tyrannical systems

– The implication that God’s warranted destruction of evil is contingent upon actions by believers

The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation (Reference Edition – Parallel Text) features:

– The Qur'anic revelation presented in continuous Arabic-English parallel text

– Layout as an aide-mémoire intended to benefit English-speaking students of the Qur'an in Arabic

– Largest possible font sizes for both Arabic and English in the parallel text

– Unobtrusive system of references linking 9,000 notes with the corpus of the translation

– Appendix comprising twenty-four articles which expand on points referenced in the notes

– Cohesive and ­comprehensive explanation of the historically elusive muqattaʿat

– Logical numbering conventions designed to expedite navigation across content
