What is the Qur’an?
Muslims believe that the Qur’an is the very word of God Almighty: a complete record of the exact words revealed by God in the Arabic language through the Archangel Gabriel to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him).
The Qur’an was memorized by Prophet Muhammad and his followers, dictated to his companions, and written down by scribes, who cross-checked it during the Prophet’s lifetime. Not one word of its 114 Surahs (chapters) has been changed over the centuries. The Qur’an is in every detail the same unique and miraculous text that was revealed to Muhammad over fourteen centuries ago and to this day millions of Muslims across the globe have retained the Qur’an to memory.
What is the Qur’an Project?
For the benefit of non-speaking Arabs, several attempts have been made to translate the divine word of Almighty God to English. This includes the works of Muhammad Marmuduke Pickthall & Yusuf Ali amongst others. In the past, the Qur’an translations that are available were literally just man’s best attempt at translating from Arabic to English with very little explanation.
The Qur’an Project goes one step further & is unique in that it combines a number of collective works into one book which benefits the reader immensely. This includes:
- A short biography of the Prophetic mission of Muhammad (PBUH)
- Translation of the Qur’an (Saheeh International) with an introduction to the each chapter
- Preservation and Literary Challenge of the Qur’an
- Scientific Miracles of the Qur’an
- Miracles performed by the Prophet (PBUH)
- Position of Women in Islam
- How do I become a Muslim?
- And much more plus additional suggested reading
This project is truly something unique for the benefit of Non-Speaking Arabs and Non-Muslims conducting research on Islam which we hope the reader will benefit from and lead to Goodness.
“Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and he will have a noble reward?” [Qur’an: 57:11]
