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.

I've read over 5 different translations and I realized how hard it is to translate arabic. This was not only is easy to read but it gives an intro to chapters so you can get a jiff of the context. This helps to avoid misconceptions and also provides a clear understanding for the situation the prophet (SAW) was in and how Allah comforts him with clear stories of the past prophets. Alhamdulillah (All praise is due to Allah), this was amazingly put together by multiple Muslims that truly understands today's english. May Allah reward and have mercy on us all. Ameen
First the translation is first rate. But there are people who need large type in order to read. This edition is a very welcome addition to help those with weak eyesight who would very much like benefit from the Quran. Maashallah.
