The Tafsir of Sura Qaf was written for seekers who wish to learn the meanings of the Book of Allah and deepen their connection to the Messenger of Allah s.w.t by the Syrian gnostic (‘arifbillah) and lover of the Prophet ﷺ, Shaykh ‘Abdullah Sirajuddin al-Husayni r.a. The blessings of the Quran are infused into the wisdom of its meanings. Sura Qaf comprises timeless messages focusing the reader on the hereafter, transporting him to the time of his own death (sakrat al-mawt), removing the veil from the Recording Angels (raqibun ‘arid) on his shoulders, and placing him squarely in the middle of the Day of Judgement. Yet, despite this sura’s heavy focus on the akhira, it is Shaykh ‘Abdullah Sirajuddin’s love of the Prophet s.a.w that surfaces throughout this work.
