The Character of the Bearers and People of the Qur'an discusses the required manners and character of those who preserve, recite and believe in the Qur'an, thus including all Muslims in general. The book is divided into ten chapters. Most of the material is of two types: quotations and admonitions. The quotations are from the Qur'an, Sunnah and words of the Companions and the Salaf; the admonitions have been composed by the author on the basis of the quotations, to address the reader directly and guide him to righteousness and virtue. Al-Ajurri's book is regarded as one of the principal sources in its subject-matt er, being one of the very first works to comprehensively address the required manners and character of the people of the Qur'an. Al-Qur'an Society is pleased to introduce this book and its author to an English readership for the first time, by the Grace of Allah.
