THE MEANINGS OF THE GLORIOUS QUR’AN AN EXPLANATORY TRANSLATION

In the Name of Allah, the Most Glorious, the Most Merciful
“… The Qur’ân cannot be translated. …The book
is here rendered almost literally and every effort has
been made to choose befitting language. But the result
is not the Glorious Qur’ân, that inimitable symphony,
the very sounds of which move men to tears and
ecstasy. It is only an attempt to present the meaning
of the Qur’ân and peradventure something of the
charm in English. It can never take the place of the
Qur’ân in Arabic, nor is it meant to do so…”
[Marmaduke Pickthall, 1930]
