The Risale-i Nur (Rasala an Nur) Collection is a commentary on the Glorious Qur’an written by Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, a famous Muslim Thinker (1877 – 1960). The verses of the Qur’an are expounded in the Risale-i Nur, it mainly includes: those concerned with the truths (matters) of belief, such as God’s existence and Unity, resurrection, prophethood, Divine Judgment or destiny, the revealed scriptures, angels, and man’s duties of worship.
The Risale-i Nur is uniquely fitted to address not only all Muslims but indeed all mankind for several reasons. First: it is written to deal with the problems of contemporary mentality, a mentality that whether Muslim or not has been deeply influenced by materialist philosophy: It specifically attempts to answer the most fundamental questions, doubts and confusions that this causes. Second: It explains the most profound matters of belief, which formerly only advanced scholars studied in detail, in such a way that everyone, even those to whom the subject is new, may understand and gain something without it causing any difficulties or harm.
