Introduction by Fethullah Gulen.
Published by Tughra, Turkey.
A timely addition to literature on the holy book of Islam, this translation provides the Arabic text as well as extensive explanations and interpretations on most verses. The use of modern English both in the translation and the commentaries, and the focus on social and historical aspects of Islam in the commentaries and appendices make the translation particularly accessible.
Literal translations of the Qur'an, may often sound irrelevant and fail to correspond to the original meaning.Therefore, many scholars recommend studying the Qur'an through interpretations with commentaries that deal with the reasons for revelation (asbab al-nudhul) and notes for specific references.
Also contains :
---Surahs in Alphabetical Order.
---Glossary of Terms,
---Works of Reference.

This Edition : This is a new revised compact edition which encompasses a beautiful fully bound cream leather finish. The only negative is the thin paper, however; thicker paper would have resulted in increased weight and cost, doubling if not tripling the RRP, and pricing out most people from access. See images of sample pages. Overall it is still an acclaimed translation, with more than useful annotation and appendices.
