Upon the Second Part of the
The Qur'an is the Divine Revelation and the Book of human training in the school of Islam. The commentary of the Holy Qur'an is an explanation which not only makes its subjects clear but also expands the range of. knowledge in human beings, and increases the insight of those who believe in it and act according to its contents.
In the introduction of the previous volume of this commentary of the Qur'an, part one, a rather detailed explan.ation has been written about the reason for compiling and introducing this series of the holy book. in the English version, entitled: "An Enlightening Commentary into the Light of the Holy Qur'an". The need and frequent requests of people. with various nationalities throughout the world, from this Scientific Religious Research Center for a commentary of the Qur'an in English has been the main factor that prompted the stuff of the Center to take action on compiling and publishing these existing volumes in order to make them available for the seekers of this heavenly Book. In that preface, a short definition upon 'Commentary' and the history of the commencement of the commentary of the Qur'an, and the effective phenomena contained within, is precisely presented. Therefore, by referring to that introduction, the readers can become acquainted with the quality and circumstance of the contents of this magnificent book and the difficulties that naturally exist in this great field, in general.
Tne matchless and warm appreciation of the truth seekers of the contents of this exegesis has been the best encouragement and, in fact, the driving force that, with the help of Allah and ceaseless striving and cooperation of all people involved in the course of its development, caused this volume, with no pause and in a good status, to be published and distributed among people of different countries immediately following the previous volume.
The certain need of Muslim believers in the newly independent countries of the Eastern Europe for the Qur'anic literature and obtaining its guiding meanings and enlivening concepts, especially florishing with the godly traditions of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) and Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.), in the Russian language, was another grace of Allah (s.w.t.) which was showered upon the staff of this Researching Center and caused that the existing volumes of this commentary of the Qur'an, besides being translated into English, to be expressed in Russian, too, and distributed throughout the region.
May Allah, the Almighty, bestows upon all of us the opportunity to be
capable of continuing this humble service on this sacred and godly path so
that we can compile, publish and distribute the commentary of the "hole
Qur'an successfully and praiseworthily in Persian, Russian, and English
languages, in a way that the Lord, Glory be to His Majesty, may accept this
small endeavour with the sanctity of the honour and rank of His Authority
over the earth (May
Allah hasten his glad advent). and because of that may He receive it from
the servants of the Qur'an and Islam assembled in this Center. Amin.
