All praises are due unto Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, and upon his family, and all of his Companions. Thus to proceed:
This is an introduction concerning the Noble Qur'an. It is intended to present writings about the stories in the Noble Qur'an. In this writing we would like to discuss the Qur'an itself: Defining it, describing it, discussing its virtue, when it was revealed, and how it was revealed. Also we will discuss why it was revealed in separate parts, who compiled it, how it was compiled, and when was it compiled. Then we will discuss its distinguished characteristics, its many facets, its miracles, and other related discussions.
We have intended in this introductory study of the Qur'an to show the student its mistaken understandings, and to guide the Muslim youth towards the correct understanding of the Qur'an and its related aspects. It also has not evaded us that we should point out the wisdom of expounding upon the Qur'anic stories in the Qur'an. This is so that we can stop at the thresholds of the Qur'anic stories with an understanding of this book (the Qur'an) which holds these stories between its covers.
It is Allah, the Most High, Who I ask to make this matter easy for us, and that He make possible that this pen be from the pens of Islamic struggle that defend the religion of Islam, and spread every valuable aspect of the religion.
Allah is the One Who we seek help from, and He is behind our every good intention.
