Product Description

Muhammad Asad's classic English translation and explanation of the Qur'an is much easier to handle. With a prologue by the Gai Eaton and original artwork by Ahmed Moustafa, this translation is widely considered to be the foremost in conveying the meaning and sensibility of the original Arabic text, making this edition a must-have for both veteran scholars and English readers with a budding interest in Islamic studies.

Muhammad Asad's translation and commentary is widely considered among the best in the English language, renowned for its intellectual insight and frequent reference to classical commentaries such as Zamakhshari. Muhammad Asad, a German by descent, ranks highly among the select group of well-known 20th century converts to Islam who subsequently took up scholarship. After his conversion, he traveled widely in the Gulf region during the tumultuous 1930s and 1940s. He later settled in Pakistan upon its creation in 1947, and was Pakistan's ambassador to the United Nations during the 1960s. He died in the late 1970s. His variety of experience, in the Gulf during its still unadulterated pre-WWII Bedouin lifestyle, to his presence in the high civilization of America in the 1960s, makes him a unique gentleman to understand both the environment the Qur'an originally flourished in, as well as its relevancy to modern times.
