About the Translation
For a translation to do justice to the Quran and capture its elegance and vigor, it has to be accurate, smooth, eloquent, and accessible. Unlike most popular translations, The Clear Quran® masterfully passes on all counts. To achieve accuracy, the translator has made use of the greatest and most celebrated works of old and modern tafsir (Quran commentaries), and shared the work with several Imams in North America for feedback and insight. For clarity, every effort has been made to select easy to understand words and phrases that reflect the beauty, flow, and power of the original text. Along with informative footnotes and Sura (chapter) introductions, verses have been grouped and titled based on their themes for a better understanding of the chapters, their main concepts, and internal coherence. Thanks to our dedicated team of scholars, editors, and proofreaders, we believe that what you are holding in your hands now is the finest translation of the Final Revelation.

Came in time and was nice!
I wasn't expecting the english mushaf to be as clear and concise as it is with each surah detailing where it was revealed and other important footnotes laid throughout the book. May Allah reward Dr Khattab greatly!
I have been a Muslim all my life, and I read various dry poorly translated Qurans many times and just became confused. I’m sure many poor translations have deterred people from Islam sadly. But this translation out does them all. The book is constructed in a thematic format, grouping each few verses that are conveying a concept. There’s an intro explaining some context to every surah. And there’s info at the bottom of each page that explains some important critical information. I know some Arabic and the Arabic can never be truly translated into English, as this translation says in its introduction, but it’s the closest I have ever seen. I absolutely love it. I recommend it to every single person. I buy multiple copies to give out, so that people can really understand the beauty of the Quran and the beauty of Islam.
I 100000% recommend this! I have tried many different translations and I have to keep a dictionary nearby even though English is my first language. This
Even though Arabic is my native language, I still like this translation as it shows a "title" for every set of verses, gives an introduction to the chapter, and provides alternative translations for the same verse.
Jazakum Allah Khairan Katheera.
Alhamdolillah, I am very pleased to receive the copy of Clear Quran translated by Dr. Khattab. The translation is lucid and pleasing to read and understand. The binding and compact size of the Clear Quran is attractive and enables to carry and handle it with ease. My profound commendation to all individuals who put in their time and effort to create such a magnificent and priceless marvel. May ALLAH SWT Bless them infinitely in this world and the hereafter for their service and contribution in this noble cause. ALLAHUMMA AAMEEN.
When I ordered I thought I was I only going to get one copy and not 50 but I did find a brother that needed them for his Dawah booth so they will be used for a worthy cause In Shah Allah.
