Text, Translation & Commentary (Koran)
An extremely popular English translation of the Qur'an with commentary.
"Undoubtedly unique and most acceptable among all the exegetical renderings of the Holy Qur'an attempted so far in the English language."—Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi
The Glorious Qur'an is an abridged edition of Abdul Majid Daryabadi's Tafsir al-Qur'an, recognized for its meticulous English translation of the Arabic original and the use of comparative religion, anthropology, and history in its authoritative commentary of the Koran. Another valuable element of the work is the education it provides—its life-giving articles of faith, its life-sustaining teachings and its life-enriching worldview in a manner best suited for the English speaking world.
Abdul Majid Daryabadi (1892–1977) was an eminent scholar, Qur'an commentator, notable Urdu writer and journalist, and editor of the magazines Sachch and Sidq.
