Quran Reading & Understanding Made Simple

Are you baffled, confused and bored when reading a Quran translation? It need not be like that! We have good news for you. Here is the crux of the problem with old Quran translations:

  • Fragmenting the Divine book into verses, so they are disjointed. No longer a coherent text. Prof Abdul Haleem (University of London) laments about this and calls it ‘versification’ and ‘atomisation’. Where verses are separated like in poetry, even on separate lines. This makes reading the Quran difficult; it no longer runs like coherent prose or a smooth narrative.
  • Lack of context, you don’t know the background of the revelation, the context is ignored. What were the circumstances of revelation? Who were the protagonists and detractors?

Introducing The Majestic Quran

So, we decided to tackle both problems head-on. We specially crafted the translation with the reader in mind. So, we did three things:

  1. Used plain English language, which is simple to understand; then the verses were grouped into thematic sections.
  2. Crafted concise headings for each section that provide a brief preview of the main topic, allowing you to easily identify each story’s start and end.
  3. Added an introduction to each Surat where we identified its central theme, its time and the circumstances of revelation. So, you know the context.

The presentation of The Majestic Quran is attractive and appealing. It overcomes the poor presentation of the translation as separate verses. Now it is coherent and joined making it smooth reading. Just as the original Divine word spoke eloquently and clearly to the Arabs. That’s natural and cool. We crafted it to closely mirror the original meaning using straightforward, contemporary English. This miraculous text astounded those who heard it 1400 years ago. We intend to preserve this impact in the English rendition.

You can now immerse yourself in Allah’s words. You will relish the moments of listening to the Kind Lord, you will be engrossed in the beautiful message and take guidance. A distinct benefit of this way of presenting the sacred text is that you begin to see the overarching story of the Surat unfold. How Allah reveals Himself, through the multifaceted stories. This way you will be immersed in Allah’s book, lost in its stories, relish the passages on paradise and be terrified of the Divine punishment of Hell. Once you’ve read the Surat, you’ll say with joy, ‘I’ve got it or most of it!’ InshaAllah.

How do we know it’s successful?

The Majestic Quran has rapidly attracted over 250,000 readers globally in a surprisingly short period and has also become an Amazon best-seller in the Quran category. A testimony to its success, Alhamdulillah.

So, we are developing more resources to help you access Allah’s word. I ask all teachers of the Quran and the wonderful Imams to get a copy and start teaching it to their congregation. I’m inviting you to build a relationship with the Author, the Wise Lord.
