Millions of people have learned its entirety by heart throughout every generation since it was first revealed. Nearly every Muslim memorizes parts of it, and most recite a portion of it every day. No book, religious or otherwise, is read, recited, or listened to as frequently as the Qur’an. Those who recite it in Arabic are always eager to do more, aware of its inimitable clarity, rhythm, and brevity. Yet, modern English readers have had limited access to its meanings, with most reliant upon translations prepared in archaic English, unappealing to the contemporary reader.
In this new translation, the renowned author and scholar Adil Salahi has endeavored to put the meanings of the Qur’anic verses and surahs in straightforward form so that the 21st-century reader may find it concise, easy to access, and yet full of expansive expression.
