About the Translator

On April 4, 1872, ‘Abdullah Yusuf ‘A1i was born in a family of the Bohra community in Surat, India. His father, a merchant, was a very religious man who made sure that his son learned Qur’an before anything else. Upon the completion of young ‘Abdullah’s committing the entire Qur’an to memory, his father celebrated the occasion with a grand banquet, thus showing to his son the importance of his achievement and the importance of the Qur’an. In addition to studying contemporary knowledge at school, ‘Abdullah continued to receive lessons in Arabic language and never ceased in his studies of the Qur’an. He was a superior student who excelled in academic achievement and won the much coveted Indian Civil Service Award, a prestigious honor resulting from the extremely competitive entrance examinations for high positions in the Indian Civil Service which wealthy families would aspire for their sons to receive. ‘Abdullah was easily able to absorb English literature and was considered to be among the best of his fellow countrymen in writing English. Many of the most well-known scholarly magazines in India published his works and expressed their appreciation for his beautiful literary style. Later, ‘Abdullah Yusuf 'Ali left India for Europe and visited many European capitals and eventually resided in London for a considerable period of time.

While in London, he was exposed to many translations of the Qur’an and continued to have a tremendous interest in it and its studies. He then began to closely study the Qur’an giving special attention to its various interpretations, both old and new. After studying what was written about the Qur’an in both European and Eastern languages, he returned to India and took up new residence in Lahore where he became the Dean of the Islamic College. He then began his monumental work of translating and commenting on the Qur’an which after three full years of work was completed on his 65th birthday.

‘Abdullah Yusuf ‘Ali later died in London on December 10, 1953.

Description from the publisher:

This brand new (for 2011) Qur'an concept is revolutionary in its ability to communicate the English meaning of Arabic Qur'anic text. Each word of Arabic Qur'an is in 1 color, and corresponding (in the same color) is the English equivalent. Thus, every word, phrase, and sentence of the Qur'an is color coded, both in Arabic and English, enabling the new or novice Arabic reader to glean the meanings of the Arabic text. Check out the sample pages to learn more.







The Holy Qu'ran is the book of the universe. It was revealed to a single human being 1400 years ago over the span of 23 years. No other book in the history of the world has inspired so many, elicited so much scholarly effort, been memorized by so many people of all colors and ages, or so loved. What other book has described the development of the fetus in the womb; the expansion of the universe; the mysteries of water , bees, ants and camels; the lives of all the major prophets, peace be upon them one and all; the miraculous births of Mary, may Allah be pleased with her, and Jesus, peace be upon him; and the mysterious role of Shaytan to try and make us forget our true nature? Where else can we learn how Adam, peace be upon him, the father of us all, endeared himself to Allah by accepting the Trust of being "programmed" with the names of every other created thing in the universe, and by asking for forgiveness and submitting his will to the Source of his being? Where else can we find the reassurance that one of Allah's Names, The Merciful, is the foremost of all His Names? The translator of this volume, Abdullah Yusuf Ali, spent his life studying Qu'ran, having memorized it in its entirety by the age of 6. He became fluent in both Arabic and English, mastered world literature and history, traveled widely, and worked on this translation for 40 years. Allah willing, He will make you see and taste and sense a generous portion of the infinite magnificence of this Quintessential Ocean, Qu'ran.

Author: Abdullah Yusuf Ali
Publisher: Goodword Books (2005)
Pages: 1862 Binding: Hardcover

Description from the publisher:

This is the universally popular Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation, unique in this edition by having its Arabic script be the script commonly familiar with by those of Indian or Pakistani upbringing, i.e. "Persian script."

The Quran is a book of directions, showing man the right path to tread. It is a Light which guides his faltering steps, giving him timely reminders of Allah’s will, awakening his sleeping nature and conveying the Lord’s admonition. It is a book that, in giving him the moral sense to distinguish right from wrong, cures him, and his society, of all ills. In that sense, it is a book of wisdom, full of every expression of correct understanding. More, it is a book of laws, laying down for us the very foundations on which to build and organize society. In short, it provides everything that man-as an individual and as member of society-can ever need. Without this, man can never be the gainer, no matter how hard he tries.

The Qur’an explains that it is this One God alone who sustains us throughout our lives here on this earth. Through Him our hearts are set at ease, for it is He who provides true warmth in life. He rescues us in times of peril, assists us in the hour of need. All power rests in His hands: honour and glory will be the rewards of any nation who look to Him for support, while only disgrace and humiliation will be the lot of those who abandon Him. To know this is to hold the key to all the treasures in life. He who possesses this key gain all; he who loses it, loses all.
