IEQ is a joint venture between the Center for Islam and Science, Canada and the Society for Qur'anic Studies, Pakistan
Center for Islam and Science, Canada
Established in 2000, the Center for Islam and Science (CIS) is an independent research center dedicated to the promotion of research and diffusion of knowledge on all aspects of Islam. CIS operates under an international advisory board and a local executive committee. It is a registered not-for-profit organization in the province of Alberta and a registered charity with revenue Canada. In addition to publishing its semi-annual journal, Islam & Science, the center holds conferences, workshops, and symposia.
Society for Qur'anic Studies, Pakistan
Society for Qur'anic Studies (SQS) was established in Pakistan in 2008 under the Societies Act XXI of 1860. Its main objective is to produce and publish IEQ and more broadly to promote the understanding of the Qur'an and other Islamic Sciences.
The combined effort by CIS and SQS will benefit from the well-established international contacts these organizations have and the joint venture will make the Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qur'an a world-wide effort, benefiting the entire Ummah. Our aim is to produce a scholarly work that will become a standard reference work on the Qur'an both in the Muslim world as well as in the West.
