The Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qurʾān (IEQ) draws on a wide range of traditional Muslim sources to present all concepts, places, persons, events, and things mentioned in the Qur'an.

What are Scholars saying about IEQ

“These volumes will soon be in every library in the West. This is a great service to Islam, a great service to Islamic studies in the West, and a great service to comparative religious studies into the future.”

Seyyed Hossein Nasr

“The Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qur’an is the most beneficial project of our time. Its goal is to convey the authentic message of the Noble Qur’an to the contemporary readers by tapping into the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), and by following the path of the traditional scholarship laid out by the righteous forebears.”

Imam Yousef Abu Sneineh
Imam and Khateeb,
Masjid Al-Aqsa

“The people undertaking the Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qur’an are poised in the middle of a great venture, not just for defense of our religion and our beliefs but an absolving of ourselves from the debt that is placed upon all scholars to combat misinformation and spread the truth about Islam. They work with limited resources, reliant on Allah’s guidance and eager only for His mercy, and they deserve nothing less than our full support--by pen, by money, by word and deed.”

(Late) Muhammad Mustafa Al-Azami

“It is with great honor that I wish to give support to The Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qur’an project. May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta`ala bless Dr. Muzaffar and his entire team that is under-taking this immense and ever-so-important project. In relation to the communal obligations, I really believe that serving the Qur’an and preserving its message is of utmost importance.”

Yahya Rhodus

“This is the greatest project on the Book of Allah that Muslims have ever undertaken in the last few centuries. It is poised to bring to the world the highest level of scholarship on the Qur’an.”

(Late) Dr Israr Ahmad
