Product Description

About the Author

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, CBE, FRSL (/ li /; 14 April 1872 10 December 1953) was an Indian Islamic scholar who translated the Qur'an into English.[1] His translation of the Qur'an is one of the most widely known and used in the English-speaking world. Ali was born in Bombay, British India to a wealthy merchant family with a Dawoodi Bohra (sub-sect of Shia Islam) father. As a child, Ali received a religious education and, eventually, could recite the entire Qur'an from memory. He spoke both Arabic and English fluently. He studied English literature and studied at several European universities, including the University of Leeds. He concentrated his efforts on the Qur'an and studied the Qur'anic commentaries beginning with those written in the early days of Islamic history. Yusuf Ali's best-known work is his book The Holy Qur'an: Text, Translation and Commentary, begun in 1934 and published in 1938 by Sh. Muhammad Ashraf Publishers in Lahore, British India (that became Pakistan in 1947). While on tour to promote his translation, Ali helped to open the Al-Rashid Mosque, the third mosque in North America, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in December 1938.[2][3] Ali was an outspoken supporter of the Indian contribution to the Allied effort in World War I.[1] He was a respected intellectual in India and Sir Muhammad Iqbal recruited him to be the principal of Islamia College in Lahore, British India. Later in life, he again went to England where he died in London. He is buried in England at the Muslim cemetery at Brookwood, Surrey, near Woking, not far from the burial place of Marmaduke Pickthall.

Ma Sh Allah! Received mine today and was blown away with the outstanding quality of this beautiful Qur'an! I have seen similar in Islamic shops 3 or 4 times the price so I was very impressed. Basically for those who don't know Roman transcription is Arabic written in English the way it is pronounced for those who don't have a great grasp on Arabic this is ideal and ideal for reverts like myself :) Alhamdulillah amazing! Would highly recommend kitaabun sellers they sent a bookmark and a little sheet of reminders which I thought was lovely so thoughtful! Will be buying direct from the sellers website as they are fast in sending well packaged and great quality!

If you know some Arabic and are not confident with reading it, this transliteration will help you to some extent.
To fit in the Arabic text, English translation and transliteration the text is a fairly small, however the book is well printed and text is easy to follow. There are none of the footnotes and commentaries that you would normally get on a English translation. However there is a good index at the back.
