This is an English version of Maulānā Sayyid Abul A‘lā Maudūdi’s Urdū translation of the Holy Qur’ān, first published in one volume from Lahore in July, 1976. This work, as the Maulāna wrote in the Preface, was in fact intended for those readers who only wanted to read the translation of the Qur’ān and could not spare the time to study the detailed commentary in the Tafhīm-ul-Qur’ān. However, he added brief explanatory notes, wherever necessary, to make the translation more useful and beneficial.
This translation of the Qur’ān seeks to fulfil the growing need of the educated people to grasp the true spirit of the Qur’ān and understand the real object of its revelation. I trust that it will meet the demand that has been increasing day by day in spite of the commendable efforts of the earlier translators
