Muslims, young and old, have always loved to read the stories of all the prophets mentioned in the Quran - Islamic stories always leave their impact on our imagination. but to capture the pictures in mind, for the first time an untouched subject has emerged in the form of "Atlas of the Quran".

‘Atlas of the Quran’ is an authentic compilation of the Qur'anic stories and information regarding the prophecies and the places where different prophets lived, ruled and died. The book contains tables, pictures, regions, routes and maps of all those places which are discussed in the Quran. It also embellishes the beauty of some of the major divine events with reference to their scientific facts and innovative historical and modern sources such as the flood during the times of Prophet Noah. Apart from this, almost all the stories and incidents of the twenty five prophets, mentioned in Quran by name, are discussed in this book.

Compiled by Dr. Shawqi Abu Khalil, ‘Atlas of the Quran’ is one of the greatest attempts ever to adumbrate the Islamic facts and the author of this book surely seems to have burnt the midnight oil to undertake such extensive research.
