Project / Volume 3


Based entirely on primary sources and held to a high standard of academic rigor, the third volume of the Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qurʾān (IEQ) will further enhance the value of IEQ as a research tool. Drawing on numerous new primary sources, seldom used in any reference work on the Qurʾān in a Western language, the third volume begins with an entry on the Qurʾānic concept of “Darkness” and ends with “Hypocrisy and Hypocrites”. Like the first two volumes, the third volume taps into a wide range of traditional Muslim sources, integrates the source material at several levels, and presents a cohesive, cross-referenced text that is at once contemporary and classical.
