About this book

Plants of the Qur'ān is the first book to explore and highlight the history of the plants mentioned in the Qur'ān, many of which are part of our everyday life, from pomegranates and grapes to ginger and garlic.

The main section of the book highlights thirty of the plants most prominent in the Qur'ān, with details on where the plant is mentioned in the Qur'ān text, detailed etymology, cultural history, and botanical description. Ghazanfar's in-depth research for this book has led to new findings in our knowledge of the historical and cultural significance of these plants, their traditional and present uses, as well as detailed exploration of the context in which they are mentioned in the Qur'ān. Each of these plants are beautifully illustrated with unique botanical paintings by artist Sue Wickison, drawn from living specimens in the wild.

The authors take us on a fascinating journey through the cultural history of these important plants, brought to life with vivid and stunningly detailed botanical paintings.
