Ulum al Quran

I've been keen to learn Ulum al Quran for sometime, and alhamdulilLah, I've stumbled upon this video, which is part of a series of lectures on the Sciences of the Qur'an by Sheikh Navaid Aziz, one of latest additions to Al Maghrib's instructor line-up as well as one of the youngest :)

He recommends a comprehensive and authentic contemporary book on the Qur'anic Sciences, Manahil al-Irfan fi Ulum al-Quran written by Muhammad Abdul Azim Zarqani (2 volumes). It is an excellent book for studying the history of the Quran and how it came to be, subhan Allah.

Another book recommended is Mabahith fi Ulum al-Quran by Mana'al Qattan. And during my discussion with Ramzan about ayat Makani and Madani, he shared another good reference by Ahmed von Denffer, subhan Allah.
