From the ForewordThis Concordance of the Qur'an in English satisfies a paramount want of those--and there are literally thousands of them--who haven't any command of the Arabic language and but wish to comprehend the Qur'an. the convenience derivable from English translations of the Sacred publication is, in precept, restricted simply because, first, the Qur'an isn't a "book" yet a suite of passages published to Muhammad over a interval of approximately twenty-three years and, moment, as the Qur'an seriously isn't translatable. this doesn't suggest that the Qur'an shouldn't be translated. It does suggest that translations lose a lot in tone and nuance, not to mention the incommunicable attractiveness, grandeur, and beauty of the unique. . . .The major contrast of Hana Kassis's concordance, for my part, is that it makes use of the semantic constitution of Arabic vocabulary itself in revealing the that means of the Qur'an on any given factor, aspect or suggestion. A reader who appears within the index of this concordance for a observe which he has encountered in interpreting an English translation of the Qur'an--the observe delight, for example--is directed instantly to the roots of the Arabic, Qur'anic phrases for delight. At tne entries for those Arabic roots, the entire by-product types are proven, and the verses of the Qur'an during which they seem are there indexed in translation. . . .I am convinced that anyone who's essentially attracted to figuring out the Qur'an and appreciating the nuances of its diction and colors of its which means can fulfill his desire extra totally with this ebook than in anyway in need of constructing a true command over the Arabic language itself.--Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Islamic proposal, college of Chicago
