The Qur'An

Oxford Islamic Studies Online   "Oxford Islamic Studies Online provides two different interpretations of the Qurʾan frequently recommended in courses for their even-handed approach and accessibility. Accompanying the Qurʾan interpretations is a full Concordance linking English words and corresponding transliterations of the Arabic text to chapter and verse citations. These resources can be used and displayed individually and in combination for browsing or intensive study and comparison."

A Concordance to the Qur'An BP 133 .K37 1983 (Waldo, General Stacks)
An English language concordance in which the reader looks up an English word, is then directed to its Arabic root, and then to the Koranic terms related to this transliterated term.

Arabic-English Dictionary of Qur'anic Usage BP 133 .B23 2008 (Waldo, Ref) "The words are arranged according to their Arabic root. The entry for each includes an inventory of its various meanings (or "semantic scatter"); the morphological derivatives that occur in the Qu'ran and the number of times they occur; and an accordance with the order in which each derivative occurs in abd al- Baqi's Concordance."

Holy Qur'An BP 109 .1982b (Waldo, General Stacks) An English translation of the Qur'An is placed side-by-side, passage by passage, with the Arabic.

The Qur'an: An Encyclopedia BP 133 .Q715 2006 (Ref) "The complex teachings and meanings of the Qur'an, its commentators, main figures, places, and events are some of the topics described in entries written for the general reader. A clear focus on the Qur'an is carefully maintained throughout, but current affairs, approaches, and controversies are discussed in the broader entries."

The Qur'an: Modern Muslim Interpretations BP 130.45 .C66513 2011 (Waldo, General Stacks) Surveying contemporary Muslim interpretation of Islamic scripture, Campanini (medieval philosophy, State U. of Milano, Italy) looks at the Qur'an and praxis; traditional Salafi, traditionalist, and scientific commentary; the Qur'an as text, discourse, and structure; Sayyid Qutb's radical exegesis of the Qur'an; the Qur'an and the hermeneutics of liberation; and other areas of Qur'anic exegesis.
