Imagine that you

Write a 4-5 page paper (double-spaced) on the following topic:
Imagine that you live in the middle of a desert and that the only portion of the Qur’an to reach your isolated village is Sura 26, “The Poets.” Excited by this discovery, you read this text several times and proceed to write an analysis of its major ideas and teachings. Your task is to identify and discuss at least five themes found in Sura 26 in a coherent essay.
1) You do not need to use any additional readings to Sura 26 (attached below).
2) Be sure to support your themes with Qur’anic verses. Cite verses in the following format: (sura #: verse #), so that verse 7 of sura 26 would be cited as (26:7).
3) You should cite at least three verses for each theme. These verses should come from different parts of the sura and not all be adjacent to each other.
4) Make sure that your paper has an introductory paragraph and a concluding paragraph.
5) Papers must be typed in 12-point Times New Roman font with standard margins. The first paragraph of the paper should begin near the top of the first page. Neither a title page nor a “sources cited” page is necessary.
1) Read Sura 26 multiple times prior to writing the paper.
2) Write an outline of your paper prior to writing the complete version. (You do not need to turn in your outline.)
3) In the Qur’an, the singular God is referred to by the pronouns “He,” “I,” and “We.” The translator consistently capitalizes the pronouns referring to God.
4) While you may discuss Sura 26 with your friends, you must write your own paper. No two papers should look as though they were written by the same person.
5) If you find writing papers challenging, make an appointment with your TA to show them a draft.
6) Avoid common mistakes: it’s = it is; its = possessive. An effect (noun); to affect (verb).
7) Avoid slang and excessive use of semicolons and contractions.
