The Holy Quran is the last book of Allah Almighty that unveils the secrets of a happy life. Allah Almighty sent the Quran for the ultimate guidance of Humanity so they can live their life the way Allah wants them to live. The Holy Quran was revealed in the Arabic language as it was the language of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Many new Muslims or those whose native language isn’t Arabic finds it difficult to understand the meaning of the Holy Quran. We all know how rapidly Islam is spreading in Europe and America. The absence of an authentic translation and interpretation of the Holy Quran was a big learning gap for the community. Darussalam has tried to fill this gap by publishing the Interpretation of the Meaning of the Noble Quran that provides verse by verse translation in English.
The two-column text with English and Arabic translations in parallel are provided while the meaning of the difficult words are also explained to make the learning process seamless. There is no doubt in the authenticity of the translation as it meets all the standards of translation. Moreover, the translator and publisher have tried to make the learning and reciting process easy and flawless by adding the index of suras, a list of prostration places, prophets mentioned in the Quran, and notes on related topics.
The footnotes of tafsir are also taken from authentic and the most accepted interpretations such as Al Qurtabi, tafsir Ibn Kathir, and Al Qurtabi. The aforementioned translations are accepted by the mist scholars as they are extracted from Quran and hadith. One must know that the Holy Quran can be interpreted by hadith, incidents shared by the companions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)), and the other verses of the Quran.
Every Muslim must learn the Holy Quran and Understand its meaning. As Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran:
ولقد يسرنا القرآن للذكر فهل من مدكر
And We have certainly made the Quran easy to remember. So is there anyone who will be mindful? (القمر: 17)
Allah also admires the people who recite, teach and learn the meaning of the Noble Quran as He says:
إِنَّ ٱلَّذِینَ یَتۡلُونَ كِتَـٰبَ ٱللَّهِ وَأَقَامُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَأَنفَقُوا۟ مِمَّا رَزَقۡنَـٰهُمۡ سِرࣰّا وَعَلَانِیَةࣰ یَرۡجُونَ تِجَـٰرَةࣰ لَّن تَبُورَ
Surely those who recite the Book of Allah, establish prayer and donate from what We have provided for them—secretly and openly—˹can˺ hope for an exchange that will never fail (فاطر: 29)
He also says:
الَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يَتْلُونَهُ حَقَّ تِلَاوَتِهِ أُولَـٰئِكَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِهِ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ
Those Who have given the Book follow it as it should be followed. It is they who ˹truly˺ believe in it. As for those who reject it, it is they who are the losers. (البقرة: 121)
Allah Almighty rewards on reciting every word of the Holy Quran and those who invest their efforts in the learning of the Holy Quran are better human beings in the sight of Allah. The English translation of the Holy Quran provides a better means of learning and understanding the Holy Quran to English-speaking individuals.
Translating the Quran into another language is possible only for a person who is fluent in both languages. The beauty of the interpreter of this version is that he is an expert in both languages, English and Arabic, for which reason he has translated the complex sentences of the Quran as accurately as possible.
Some additions, corrections, and alterations have been made to improve the English interpretations of the meaning of the Quran to bring it as close as possible to its subsequent Arabic Text. That’s why people from all over the world have endorsed the effort of Darussalm and termed it the best translation and tafsir are written in a simple and easy to understand way.
The Arabic text of the Noble Quran has been taken from Mushaf Al-Madinah An-Nabawiyyah, which has been printed by the Mujamma of King Fahd of Saudi Arabia for the printing of Al-Mushaf Ash-Sharif, in the year 1405 A.D. There isn’t even the slightest doubt in the translation as well as the interpretation of the Holy Quran. The perfect binding and premium quality pages are some additional benefits the user gets with it.
