This is a version of the Holy Qur'an, with the original Arabic, accompanied by a phrase by phrase translation by Ali Quli Qarai.

"This is a wonderful translation. It is both faithful and fluent. [The translator has] struck a nice balance here. It is a real improvement over existing translations."

- Dr Muhammad Legenhausen 

 

"What Qarai has accomplished is a revival of the art of translation as an adjunct to the understanding of the original, skilfully adapted to the needs of the English-speaking student of the Qur’an. He has opted always for the maximum degree of closeness to the Arabic compatible with comprehensibility, thereby coordinating translation with original in the most substantial of ways. 

Although Qarai envisions his translation as a paraphrase of the Qur’anic meanings, as a tool for gaining access to the original, it must be stressed that his translation reads extremely well even if regular cross- reference to the Arabic may not be the purpose of the reader. 

The language Qarai has chosen is clear, chaste, straightforward and dignified, distant from both the archaisms and the modernisms that have been affected by other English translators of the Qur’an. 

…It is plain, indeed, that a serious and profound appreciation of the Qur’anic message has animated the whole of Qarai’s successful labours. We warmly recommend his translation to all with a serious interest in the Qur’an."

- Prof. Hamid Algar

Great as expected!

I have been reading the Quran in Arabic as well as in English and I must say that the translation is quite extraordinary. It tries to stay as authentic as possible without giving too much context. It's more of a literal unique translation than an interpretation which is exactly what I was looking for. If you want to order this book, get the green cover as that is a hardcover. Unfortunately I did not know and got the paperback (yellow/creme coloured one). The paperback is of good quality, but a hardcover is nicer to handle and read from. 5-star rating for the quick delivery and quality of the package!

Wonderful….

Aside from the clear and simple translation, the printing is crisp and the paper is sturdy.
