Ma Shaa Allah. May Allah reward Musa Furber and bestow increased blessings upon Imam An-Nawawi! I had the honor of reading the manuscript of this book, given to me by Sheikh Abdullah Al-Kadi, when I lived in Saudi Arabia. While the manuscript was good, I was very impressed with the final version--this book is well-written in clear English prose--an irreplacable treasure for English speaking Muslims. There need to be more classical Islamic works well-translated into English, and both the translat ...more

No more of this book! You may wonder why no more with this book. Well, Turn to surat Nissa (women chapter), and read the fourth chapter, verse 34, and put yourself in my place when you discover this books permits the male to read the woman, just because she is not a male. Here is the whole verse:
"If you fear high-handednessb from your wives, remind them [of the teachings
of God:], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them."

A book supposedly sacred encourages me to beat a woman because

Buku ini penting sebagai alat muhasabah diri dan juga menetapkan kayu ukur yang harus kita pegang apabila berhubung dengan Al-Qur'an.

Karangan Imam al-Nawawi yang juga telah mengarang Hadith 40: Terjemahan dan Sharahnya, buku ini menceritakan adab-adab dengan Al-Qur'an - tidak kira sebagai pembaca, pelajar mahupun guru Al-Qur'an.

Bonus tambahan yang sangat bernilai, adalah sisipan artikel yang dihimpunkan oleh penyusun buku ini mengenai kedudukan Al-Qur'an dalam hidup seorang Muslim.

This is the only book that you will need that details the adab that one should have towards the Qur'an. It approaches the issue from almost every conceivable angle. Musa Furber has done a tremendous service to the English speaking world.

In Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ahmed's 'Educating Children' he recommends this book for teaching children adab with the Quran. Although this book has been out of print for a while, we are truly fortunate to have this translation and I believe the new edition will be available via Amazon in the next few days.

If we are able to have the translator Musa Furber teach us this text, I'm sure our experience with the Quran will be further enriched.

I had the privilege of learning this book at the hands of the translator and inheritor of authorisation to teach this book, when he conducted a course in Singapore. Learning the ettiquettes of the Qur'an had the effect of not only teaching me how to respect it properly, it also lifted my spirits in discovering the richness generosity of the benefits of cultivating a relationship with the book.

Have not been able to use this book in a classroom setting but feel it is necessary for every young and old student of the Quran, be they learning basic recitation, memorizing the entire Book, or studying exegesis. Excellent and fluid translation. A worthy buy.

A book I often find myself going back Alhamdulilah when I feel the need to remind myself of the bond I should have with the Quran and am in need of strengthening that bond. The translation is easy to follow yet concise and uses an appropriate level of vocabulary ( doesn't 'dumb down' the content, something I find most islamic translations do).

Peace to all. I have browsed the Arabic version, read the Malay translation and currently going through this translation by Shaykh Musa Furber. I found that this version explains more clearly the Arabic meaning of the book and it encompasses the essence and spirit of the original. It is indeed a required reading for those who seek to be more sensitive and discerning when reading the Qur'an; how to prepare oneself to read and how to prepare oneself as a reader of the Qur'an. The book is indeed cl ...more
