    This appears to be the first comprehensive, modern Arabic language encyclopedia published.

The publisher hopes to issue new revised and updated editions, continuing to add more Arabic and Islamic materials in the process.

    Drawing upon a rich scholarly heritage, Brill's Encyclopaedia of the Qur’an (EQ) combines alphabetically-arranged articles about the contents of the Qur’an. It is an encyclopaedic dictionary of qur’anic terms, concepts, personalities, place names, cultural history and exegesis extended with essays on the most important themes and subjects within qur’anic studies. With nearly 1000 entries in 5 volumes, the EQ is the first comprehensive, multi-volume reference work on the Qur'an to appear in a Western language. It uses English-language entry words rather than transliterated terminology. This format makes the EQ accessible to both specialists in Arabic and Islamic studies as well as to scholars in such fields as biblical studies, medieval history, comparative literature and the social sciences.
