Review

In 1985 some dedicated alumni of Madrasah al-Islah, Azamgarh, established the Idarah Quran at Aligarh with the objectives of producing quality research on the Qur’an in today’s idiom and context. In pursuance of the same, the Idarah has been bringing out since 1985 its biannual Urdu periodical, Majallat [Ulum al-Qur’an (Journal of Quranic Studies). Zafarul Islam Islahi, former Chairman and Professor of Islamic Studies at the AMU, and one of the founders of this Centre and a regular contributor to this journal, has done well to publish a reader-friendly, subject-wise index of the contents of this important journal in the last 35 years. Some of the outstanding features of this journal include thought-provoking articles on various aspects of Qur’anic scholarship, with a focus on tafsir studies, book reviews on recent publications on the Qur’an; occasional bibliographies on Qur’anic studies in Urdu in the Indo-Pak subcontinent, and an overview of Qur’an studies around the world.
