Description from the publisher:
This is an English translation of the Complete Quran in Contemporary English to make reading much easier and more understandable.
The Arabic verse is followed by the English translation underneath and includes explanatory notes within the translation rather than separately in the footnotes.
Each surah begins with the summary of the surah, including topics contained within it and link with previous surah.
Also contains an Introduction to the QurĈan, revelation, authority of the QurĈan, compilation of the QurĈan, etiquettes of reading and reciting the QurĈan, a glossary of terms and names and the science of Tafsir.
Moulana Ismail Ebrahim did the Major Translating, Mufti Elias added further explanatory notes within brackets from well known Classical as well as later tafsir . Ismail Kathrada edited the language without changing the meaning.
Commonly known Arabic words such as Rabb, Kuffar and names are not translated as these are second nature to most Muslims, however there is a glossary at the end for those new to Islam.
A very informative read and makes understanding the QurĈan much easier, InshaAllah.
