About this resource:

The Encyclopaedia of the Qur'an (EQ) is the first comprehensive, reference work on the Qur'an in a Western language. The Qur'an is the primary religious text for Islam. Understood by Muslims to contain God's own words, it has been an object of reverence and of intense study for centuries. Muslim scholars have contributed to Qur'anic interpretation and to the linguistic, rhetorical and narrative analysis of the text. Cross-referencing and indices relate entries, and each entry includes a relevant bibliography. The final volume of the EQ contains indices of transliterated terms, of Qur'anic references, exegetes cited in the entries, and essays as well as a synoptic outline of the full contents of the EQ.
