The Qur’an is the word of Allah, it is the most eloquent and best of all speech. The Qur’an uses different rhetorical devices and parables to convey its message. Allah says in the Qur’an: ‘We have given every type of parable in this Qur’an so that they can understand and think’. Allah conveys to us facts, stories and examples as well as guidance and warnings throughout His book. Yasir Qadhi’s book will take 30 parables of the Qur’an and explain its context and meaning in order for us to understand, reflect and change our lives.
