Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan

All glory and praise is to Allâh, the One to Whom all dignity, honour and respect are due; the Unique with perfect attributes, He begets not, nor is He begotten. He has no equal but He is the All-Mighty, Omnipotent. He sent His Messengers and Prophets to guide humanity towards Monotheism, to worship Him Alone, the only One Worthy of worship, and to warn them of the eternal dire consequences of polytheism, associating partners with One Allâh and the worship of creatures.


I would like to thank our brother Abu Abdullâh Mohammed Akhtar Chaudhry for his noble efforts in preparing the Noble Qurân in this digital ebook format, indeed it is a great contribution towards the propagation of Islâm.


I invoke you alone O Allâh, that you bless this project with success and guide all of mankind and jinn to accept Islâm as their only way of life.


O Allâh! reward all those who contributed towards this project and bless them in the highest Paradise - Al-Firdaws.


O Allâh! All Praise and Thanks be to You alone.

Interpreting the Qur.aan




Please keep in mind ANY translation (interpretation) of the Qur.aan will most definitely contain errors. In its natural language (Arabic), the Qur.aan is the direct Word of Allaah (God) to mankind through the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Any translation of the Qur.aan no longer retains that 'official' and perfect status, however it can be tremendously helpful to beginning students wanting to learn more about Islaam.


We would strongly encourage those want to learn about Islaam to purchase a hardcopy of the Qur.aan but with the following conditions:


l get one with commentary (tafseer)

l make sure the tafseer is scholarly (e.g. references to reasons behind a verse, references to hadith and sunnah, etc.)
