The Message of the Qur’an- Translated and explained by Muhammad Asad (Revised Edition)

“READ in the name of thy Sustainer, who has created - created man out of a germ-cell! Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One who has taught [man] the use of the pen - taught man what he did not know.” (Surah 96)

The Message of the Qur'an is a translation and interpretation of the Qur'an by Muhammad Asad, It is considered one of the most influential Quranic Translations of the modern age.

It is widely considered among the best of the English language translations of the Quran making this edition a must-have for English readers with a budding interest in Islamic studies and veteran scholars alike. He drew upon his extensive knowledge of classical Islamic texts to provide an illuminating commentary founded upon extensive linguistic, cultural, and historical knowledge.

Each surah has a comprehensive introduction explaining its theme, message and the circumstances of revelation.  Asad's translation and commentary, incorporates many of our modern understandings of the world into his explanation.

This book serves as a matchless aid to understanding the holy book of Islam and provides in itself a complete education in the faith. If you are interested in the Quran, or anyone for that matter even one who understands proper Arabic it is highly recommended to read this book. It is a key in understanding the Quran. 

Unlike any other book, its meaning and its linguistic presentation form one unbreakable whole.

There are several occasion where the writer has gone beyond the translation and explain the logic of a particular statement of the Quran allowing the reader to actively engage with the Qurans message. It goes beyond the translation but only in the foot notes, not in the actual texts.

As a major contribution to the correct understanding of the Quran, this should be a must-read book for all who are interested in gaining a short-cut access to the introduction of genuine Islam.

This new edition has been completely revised in the layout and presentation, with very clear, readable Arabic script.
