The Qur’an in English

Author/Translator: M.A.S. Abdel Haleem

This is arguably one of the best and easiest to understand English translations of the Holy Qur’an out there. The Qur’an is the central religious text of Islam, and has been translated into many languages. However, existing translations can be difficult to understand, due to their use of archaic language and structures. This new translation seeks to remedy that by using contemporary language that is still faithful to the meaning and spirit of the original. The result is a text that is easy to use and understand, without losing any of the Qur’an’s eloquence. In addition, the translation is accurate and free from the errors and inconsistencies that mar other translations. Thus, English speaking readers finally have access to a Qur’an translation that they can actually use.
