By Hanna E. Kassis

From the ForewordThis Concordance of the Qur'an in English satisfies a paramount want of those--and there are literally thousands of them--who don't have any command of the Arabic language and but wish to comprehend the Qur'an. the convenience derivable from English translations of the Sacred e-book 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 is just not 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 good looks, grandeur, and charm of the unique. . . .The major contrast of Hana Kassis's concordance, in my opinion, is that it makes use of the semantic constitution of Arabic vocabulary itself in revealing the which means of the Qur'an on any given factor, element or idea. A reader who appears within the index of this concordance for a notice which he has encountered in examining an English translation of the Qur'an--the notice 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 kinds are proven, and the verses of the Qur'an during which they seem are there indexed in translation. . . .I am convinced that any individual who's in actual fact attracted to realizing the Qur'an and appreciating the nuances of its diction and colors of its that means can fulfill his want extra absolutely with this ebook than whatsoever in need of constructing a true command over the Arabic language itself.--Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Islamic concept, college of Chicago
