The Holy Qur'an (also known as The Koran) is the sacred book of Islam. For Muslims, it is the word of the one God. The Qur'an was revealed to the last prophet and messenger Muḥammad (محمد) from the year 610 until his death in 632 by the angel Gabriel (جبريل).

According to the Qur'an, God exists and is unique, and He is the author of all the sacred books of the three monotheistic religions that are Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. He thus revealed the Gospel to the penultimate prophet Jesus and the Torah to the prophet Moses. We read thus in verse 3 of sura 3: "It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind".

However, Islam considers that, with the exception of the Quran, all the holy Books have been falsified by man. Verse 75 of Sura 2 goes in this direction: "Well, do you hope [Muslims] that such people [the Jews] will share your faith with you? while a group of them; after having heard and understood the word of Allah, knowingly falsified it."

As the influence of Islam grows and spreads to the world, translating the Qur'an is of fundamental importance in order to introduce and explain Islam to anyone interested.

This present work is a translation into English of the meaning of the verses of the Quran made by Saheeh Interntional. This translation is considered to be one of the most faithful rendering available in English.

About this book:

It is one of the best available translations currently available. This is a simpler, clearer and easier to read translation than many of the popular ones which proceeded it. Saheeh International reviewed each verse in Arabic with reference to several works of Arabic tafseer and grammar, choosing contemporary wording and carefully placing them in order similar to that of the original Arabic whenever possible. 'Without going into excessive detail, a word is due here about the methodology of this abbreviated edition.

Three main objectives have served as guidelines: To present correct meanings, as far as possible, in accordance with ' aqeedah ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jama'ah. To simplify and clarify the language for the benefit of all readers. To let the Qur'an speak for itself, adding footnotes only where deemed necessary for explanation of points not readily understood or when more than one meaning is acceptable.'[Taken from Editor's Preface] This acclaimed translation of the meanings of the Holy Qur'an has set new standards of readability and accuracy, for the benefit of everyone needing a resource of the Qur'an in English.

It is now available in paperback form for ease in carrying and distribution. Readers will appreciate the clear, modern English, the smooth flow of sentences, and the concise footnotes which give necessary information but allow uninterrupted reading of the main text. The scholars and translators of Saheeh International have paid careful attention to authentic sources of hadeeth and tafsir and have made comparisons with previous classic English translations. The result is a highly accessible and reliable work that can be used by anyone wanting to study the authentic meanings of the Holy Qur'an Very Clearly Laid Out + Reader Friendly + An Excellent Index.
