    Reasons for the revelations. Refers to a field of study and genre of literature devoted to recounting the circumstances of the Prophet Muhammad and his followers when particular verses from the Quran were revealed. Perhaps the best-known of these texts is the Asbab al-Nuzul of Ali ibn Ahmad al-Wahidi , which is regularly reprinted alongside the text of the Quran. Legal scholars regard this study as of great importance, on the principle that sound understanding of the revelation proceeds from knowing the reasons God revealed theQuranand how the Prophet Muhammad applied the revelation when he received it.
