A wonderful English translation and in depth commentary of the Holy Qur’an

There was an English translation of the Holy Qur’an recently published called the Study Qur’an which was hailed as some sort of milestone cause it gave commentary on the Qur’an and explained the backgrounds of chapters.

This translation and commentary was published decades before and contains one of the best English translations of the Holy Qur’an. It is translated by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Muslims who believe the Messiah of the Age has come to reform and unite humanity. Extremist clerics and their followers call us non-Muslim say our Holy Qur’an and translation is fake but none of them can provide evidence of this so they make and spread lies about our beliefs and literature.

Our community has translated the Holy Qur’an into over 70 languages and keeps growing its list of translations so that everyone in the world can be able to read the Holy Qur’an, InshaAllah.

Most Illuminating Commentry

Finally, we have the most illuminating commentary to more fully understand The Holy Quran. Jazakallah! This is a book from Allah and I cannot understand how anyone can curse those who have devoted a lot of effort to make is easier for non-Arabic readers to comprehend.
Jazak’allah once more!

Excellent commentary

اسلام وعلیکم ورحمتلہ وبرکتہ

I am a student of comparative religions and have not found a better source of commentary that not only provides historical background but also connect Hadith and other Muslim Literature in explaining the verses along with references from other verses of the Holy Quran Bible Torah and other secular and religious texts

A unique and universal perspective of the author explains his deep indulgence into the teachings and understanding of the Holy Quran

A must have

Absolutely pleased with it
