    Kashf al-Asrar: The Unveiling of the Mysteries.The volume is arranged in the order of the chapter and verses of the Qur'an and 1,500 pages of Persian text. There are 97 chapters, each corresponding to one Qur'anic chapter (which is to say that 17 of the short chapters do not have commentaries). Each chapter consists of explanations of from one or two to as many as 85 verses. Topics include most of the major issues in Islamic theology, metaphysics, cosmology, and spiritual psychology. The language is relatively simple and poetic, making the book much easier to access than any Qur'anic commentary now available in English, not to mention the numerous impenetrable tomes of Islamic thought.
