By Adil Salahi
An Expressive and Moving New Translation of the Qur’an, Written in Simple and Straightforward Form For The 21st Century Reader. Those who recite the Quran in Arabic are always eager to do more, aware of its inimitable clarity, rhythm and brevity, yet modern English readers have had limited access to its meanings, with most reliant upon translations prepared in archaic English, unappealing to the contemporary reader.
Adil Salahi’s translation attempts to put the meanings of the Qur’an in clear modern English, making it easier for the twenty-first century reader to gather the full message of the Qur’an, without having to read numerous footnotes or resort to books of commentary.
Adil Salahi writings include the acclaimed Muhammad: Man and Prophet and Pioneers of Islamic Scholarship, and the English translation of the 18-volume In the Shade of the Qur’an. His main career has been in radio and print journalism, and for over 30 years he was editor of ‘Islam in Perspective’, a twice-weekly full-page column in the Arab News, a Saudi daily newspaper. After working for the BBC Arabic Service for several years, he worked for the Arabic daily, al-Sharq al-Awsat.
