Description : About This Translation :

This English version of the Noble Qur’an is from the translation of Kanz-ul-Iman; which is the Urdu translation by Imam Ahl al-Sunnat; Mawlana ash-Shah Ahmad Rida Khan of Bareilly shareef.

The Qur'an is the final Message from Allah Almighty to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from The Almighty Himself through the Angel Jibra'il (Gabriel) to the Most Beloved Prophet Muhammad, May Allah Shower His Mercy upon him. This message was given to the Prophet Muhammad, May Allah Shower His Mercy upon him, in parts over a period spanning approximately 23 years, from when the Prophet, May Allah Shower His Mercy upon him, was 40 till his departure from this world (610 CE to 633 CE). The language of The Message is in Arabic, from which it has been translated into many other languages. It is a recognised fact that the divinely revealed Arabic words of the Glorious Qur’an cannot be actually transformed in any other language.

The literal translation of Arabic Qur’an conveying the same meaning is not only difficult but is near impossible. Therefore the translation of the Qur’an in any other language is usually an explanatory translation. However Imam al-Ahl-e-Sunnat Shah Ahmad Raza Khan's Urdu translation known as Kanz-ul-Iman is an explanatory translation. This explanatory translation of Urdu was completed in the beginning of 20th Century i.e. 1910. It is the most famous and accepted urdu translation by muslim’s belonging to the school of fiqh [jurisprudence] and the institution of the people of tradition and of the congregation in Indo-Pak sub-continent. This Qur'an has the Arabic text and English translation on the same page. See image below for sample text.

About AlaHadrat; Imam Ahmad Raza Khan, May Allah be pleased with him. This great jurist and learned scholar of Islam was born in 1858 at Bareilly (India), and subsequently departed from this world in 1921. He was considered to be the most learned and authentic authority on Qur’an, Sunnah and jurisprudence by the majority of muslim’s in the Sub-continent. He was a prolific writer and authored approximately one thousand (1,000) books on varying levels of Islam. He devoted his entire life to the propagation of faith and the blessed traditions of the Beloved Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam. His main theme and focus was his devoted love of Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, and his Final Messenger Muhammad, Salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam. He could bear anything except for utterances against Islam, Allah, subhanahu wa Ta’ala, or any of His Messengers. He was a traditionalist and a true follower of the school of Imam al-Azam Abu Hanifa, Radi Allahu ta’ala anhu. He was a great mystic too and was a staunch lover of al-Ghawth al-A’zam Sayyadina ash-Shaykh Abd’ al-Qadir al-Jilani, Radi Allahu ta’ala anhu, of Baghdad shareef & 'Khawaja-e-Khawjagan' Muin al-Din Hasan Chisti al-Ajmeri, Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu.

Imam Ahmed Raza Khan's religious works had no parallel in his time. His ability, foresight, and depth of knowledge had been recognised by the Ulemas’ & Muftis of all the four schools of fiqh (jurisprudence) not only of the sub-continent but of the Haramayn Sharifain and other Muslim regions too. He was awarded certificates of recognition by the great teachers of Islamic learning when he visited the Haramayn Sharifain after performing Hajj (Pilgrimage) in the beginning of 20th Century. Though he has written numerous works, his two most famous works are the translation of the Noble Qur’an in Urdu (Kanzul Iman) and Fatawa-e-Razwiyyah in many large volumes.
