The Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qurʾān (IEQ) draws on a wide range of traditional Muslim sources to present all concepts, places, persons, events, and things mentioned in the Qur'an.

What are Scholars saying about IEQ

“These volumes will soon be in every library in the West. This is a great service to Islam, a great service to Islamic studies in the West, and a great service to comparative religious studies into the future.”

Seyyed Hossein Nasr

“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…I think, it will be a standard in the field. So, I think it is really worth supporting it and I hope that all of you support it, I certainly do in my own limited capacity.”

Hamza Hansen Yusuf

“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 the 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.”

Imam Yousef Abu Sneineh
Imam and Khateeb,
Masjid Al-Aqsa

“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 schol-arship. The quality, rigor, and depth of scholarship in the first volume is impressive.”

Faraz Rabbani

“It is with great honor that I wish to give support to The Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qur’an project. May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta`ala bless Dr. Muzaffar and his entire team that is under-taking this immense and ever-so-important project. In relation to the communal obligations, I really believe that serving the Qur’an and preserving its message is of utmost importance.”

Yahya Rhodus

“This is the greatest project on the Book of Allah that Muslims have ever undertaken in the last few centuries. It is poised to bring to the world the highest level of scholarship on the Qur’an.”
