Tazkirul Quran is a commentary on the Qur’an, written in Urdu by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, in 1983. First published in Arabic in 2008 from Cairo as al-Tadhkir al-Qawim fi Tafsir al-Quran al-Hakim, the work has also been translated into Hindi and English.
According to the Maulana, the holy Qur’an, the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation fromGod (Arabic: الله, Allah)., stresses the importance of man’s discovery of truth at the level of realization. Its objective is to explain God’s Creation plan, i.e. why God created this world; the purpose of settling man on earth, what is required from man in his pre-death life span, and how his life’s record will determine what the post-death period will bring reward or punishment. The Qur’an thus serves to guide man on his entire journey through life into the after-life. The main themes of the Qur’an, clearly set forth in the present translation and commentary of the Qur’an, are enlightenment, peace and closeness to God. To enable the reader to discover God at a purely intellectual level, the Qur’an emphasizes tawassum,tadabbur, and tafakkur – reflection, thinking and contemplation on the signs of God throughout the world.
