Expanded 8th Edition

By Prince Ghazi Bin Muhammad, Seyyed Hossein Nasr (translator)

Examining at least one verse from every chapter of the Qur’an, and citing more than one-fifth of the entire text, this study analyzes what the Islamic holy book has to say about love. More than simply exploring the well-trodden subjects of  of God and love of neighbor, however, this book discusses familial love, friendship, the stages of falling in love, sexual love, extramarital love, beauty, taste, and many more. Written and structured in such a way that it can be read in its totality or referenced on a chapter-by-chapter basis, this work is essential reading not only for Muslims and scholars of Islam and  but anyone interested in the secrets and mysteries of love.
