Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Ahmed Ali's work is clear, direct, and elegant--a combination of stylistic virtues almost never found in translations of the Qur'an. His is the best I have read. Furthermore, I found the Arabic in the margin to be extremely attractive."--F. E. Peters, New York University

"This translation of the Qur'an aims at doing something new--it seeks to bring out the original rhythms of the Quranic language and the cadences. It also departs from traditional translations in that it gives more refined and differentiated shades of important concepts."--Fazlur Rahman, University of Chicago

Synopsis:

This English translation of the Qur'an was first published in 1984 in Karachi, Pakistan. Ahmed Ali, the distinguished Pakistani novelist, diplomat, and poet, presents the Muslims' Holy Book in a bilingual edition. Available for the first time in paperback, the translation renders the original in a contemporary and accessible voice.
