About The Books
1. Al Mathnawi Al Nuri - Seedbed of the Light :
This book summarizes all the topics in the Risale-i Nur, the author's great multivolume commentary on the Qur'an, and provides an outline for the later, more famous and massive treatise. Now available in English, it offers an overview of the material treated in the Risale-i Nur and an opportunity to browse through brief entries such as Flower, Spark, and Whiff, each of which is a keyword linked to a passage in the Qur'an or a figure of speech in a theological argument.
2. The Gleams - Reflections on Qur'anic Wisdom and Spirituality :
The 30 treatises written by this influential Islamic scholar address key issues of humanity, as discussed in the Qur'an, that are equally applicable to modern society. Essays include expositions on nature and its impossibility without the existence of God, the concept of sincerity and why it is a crucial part of Islam practice, and suggested ways for the elderly and sick to treat their ailments while staying true to their religion.
3. The Letters - Epistles on Islamic Thought, Belief, and Life :
Written by a celebrated Islamic scholar to his students in Turkey after his political exile in 1925, these letters follow the long-established traditions of correspondence between spiritual masters and their students in remote lands. Both expressions of friendship and long-distance tutorials on points of scholarly debate, most of the letters are answers to questions about theology and hold forth on such matters as the nature of hell, the suffering of innocents, the miracles of Prophet Muhammad, and the divine purpose of the universe.
4. The Reasonings - A Key To Understanding The Qur’an’s Eloquence :
This illuminating guide presents an innovative and contemporary approach to the Qur'an and its philosophy in the Islamic tradition. From the religious tome's purpose and objectives to its rhetoric and eloquence, various aspects of the Qur:an are examined while new insights are provided on the existence and oneness of God, prophethood, and bodily resurrection.
5. The Words - The Reconstruction of Islamic Belief and Thought :
The Words forms the first part of the Risale-i Nur collection, an approximately 6,000-page Qur'anic commentary. In this commentary Bediuzzaman Said Nursi's main concern is how to save and strengthen one's religious belief when confronted with the current prevalent materialist philosophy. It does not explain when or why a verse was revealed, but rather the truth that it represents. Subjects discussed are God, resurrection, prophethood, destiny, ego, worship, and how the truth of these matters is revealed through nature. The author also analyzes naturalist and materialist philosophy, as well as scientific theories and findings, and refutes them based on evidence that is clearly apparent in nature itself
