The Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qurʾān (IEQ) draws on a wide range of traditional Muslim sources, including exegeses, Hadith collections and commentaries, classical lexicons, biographical dictionaries, universal histories, works of jurisprudence, Prophetic biographies, and treatises on spiritual and moral psychology—some of which have never before been presented in any encyclopedic work on the Qur'an. Based on primary sources and held to a high standard of academic rigor, IEQ integrates source material at several levels: its conceptual structure presents an integrated view of the overall message of the Qurʾān; it incorporates and integrates various strands of Islamic scholarly tradition and presents a cohesive, cross-referenced text.
“I have seen the first volume. I think it is a work of exceptional scholarship. It is very vigorous academically. It is done with a very high level of beauty and intelligence. It is something that the Muslim community can be proud of, because, unfortunately, most of the encyclopedias on Islam produced in the West are done by people of other faiths, whereas this is a Muslim initiative and it is very important. I sincerely hope that people will support it.” Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
“The Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qur’an responds to the urgent need for an academic resource about the Qur’an and the Qur’anic sciences that is rooted in Islamic understanding and scholarship. The quality, rigor, and depth of scholarship in the first volume is impressive.” Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
"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 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.”Shaykh Yousef Abu Sneineh, Imam and Khateeb, Masjid Al-Aqsa
