Thousands of hours have been put into this work over the last few years to guarantee accuracy, clarity, eloquence, and flow. To achieve accuracy, the translator has made use of the greatest and most celebrated works of old and modern tafsir (Quran commentaries), and shared the work with several Imams in North America for feedback and insight. For clarity, every effort has been made to select easy to understand words and phrases that reflect the beauty, flow, and power of the original text. Along with informative footnotes and surah (chapter) introductions, verses have been grouped and titled based on their themes for a better understanding of the chapters, their main concepts, and internal coherence. Thanks to our dedicated team of scholars, editors, and proofreaders, we believe that what you are holding in your hands now is the finest translation of the Final Revelation.

As a native English speaker with Arabic background, this is the best English translation I have ever read. English translations can be dangerous and have subtle implications, but this is pretty on point and very purposeful in its translation, and flows very well too! If you are a native English speaker or need a translation for dawaa, this is the one insha’Allah!!
“The Clear Quran translation is easy to understand for the clarity & eloquence. Each paragraphs title helps to get the overall meaning & original purpose of the revelation. So it helps to get the background & understand even for the first time readers of the Quran(translation). To my knowledge this is the best English translation of the Quran.”
Finally I got a copy of what I believe to be the best translation of the Quran so far- modern clear English with a deep understanding of the word of God MashaAllah, translated by Dr. Khattab. For info about the translation and where you can buy/read it, visit www.theclearquran.com
