The Risale-i Nur

The Book of Light (Risale-i Nur) is one of the most influential and original works of Qur’anic exegesis and Islamic theology written in the past two hundred years; and yet considering its stature, it is relatively little-known in the West, even amongst Muslims. Comprising around one hundred and thirty epistles across five thousand pages, there are few books that treat a larger range of questions relating to every aspect of Islam, from creed and theology to ethical, social and liturgical questions.
