The Message of the Qurâ€™an by Muhammad Asad, dedicated to â€œpeople who thinkâ€,Â serves as a matchless aid to understanding the Holy Book of Islam and provides inÂ itself a complete education in the faith.Â As the distinguished British Muslim, Hasan Gai Eaton, explains in a new Prologue to theÂ work, there exists no more useful guide to the Qurâ€™an in the English language thanÂ Muhammad Asadâ€™s translation and commentary, and no other translator has come soÂ close to conveying the meaning of the Qurâ€™an to those who may not be able to read theÂ Arabic text or the classical commentaries.Â
Muhammad Asadâ€™s obituary in the Independent praised his magnum opus, TheÂ Message of the Qurâ€™an as a work without rival in English as an interpretation of theÂ Holy Book, not only in its â€œintellectual engagement with the textâ€, but also in its â€œintimate,Â subtle and profound understanding of the pure classical Arabic of the Qurâ€™anâ€.Â This new edition makes the work even more accessible by introducingÂ â€¢ a complete Romanised transliteration of the Arabic textÂ â€¢ a supporting guide to pronunciationÂ â€¢ a newly compiled general index of names and key conceptsÂ â€¢ original artwork by the internationally renowned Muslim artist and scholar, Dr.Â Ahmed Moustafa.Â The unique value of Muhammad Asadâ€™s lifelong labour in bringing to light theÂ teachings of the Qurâ€™an is becoming widely and deservedly recognised at a time ofÂ growing worldwide interest in what the universal message of Islam has to offerÂ mankind.Â
