Overview

The Meaning of the Glorious Koran: An Explanatory Translation by Marmaduke Pickthall (Everyman's Library) by Everyman's Library

While in the service of India’s Nizam of Hyderabad, Marmaduke Pickthall converted to Islam and, with the help of Muslim theologians and linguists, produced this clear and lovingly precise English interpretation of the Holy Koran. His work is honored by believer and non-believer alike for its unique combination of piety, scholarly rigor in its translation and explanatory notes, and deep feeling for the poetic beauty and moral grandeur of its Arabic original.

With an Introduction by William Montgomery Watt
