The Glorious Qur'an

Translator's Foreword

The Qur'an cannot be translated.That is the belief of old-fashioned Sheykhs and the view of the present writer.The book is here rendered almost literally and every effort has been made to choose befitting language.But the result is not the Glorious Quran,that inimitable symphony, the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy.It is only an attempt to present the meaning of the Qur'an - and peradventure something of the charm - in English.It can never take the place of the Qur'an in arabic, nor is it meant to do so.
