From the ForewordThis Concordance of the Qur'an in English satisfies a paramount desire 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 publication is, in precept, constrained simply because, first, the Qur'an isn't really a "book" yet a set of passages printed to Muhammad over a interval of approximately twenty-three years and, moment, as the Qur'an is simply 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 attractiveness, grandeur, and style 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 that means of the Qur'an on any given factor, aspect or idea. A reader who appears within the index of this concordance for a observe which he has encountered in analyzing an English translation of the Qur'an--the be aware delight, for example--is directed instantly to the roots of the Arabic, Qur'anic phrases for satisfaction. At tne entries for those Arabic roots, all of the by-product varieties are proven, and the verses of the Qur'an within which they seem are there indexed in translation. . . .I am convinced that anyone who's essentially attracted to knowing the Qur'an and appreciating the nuances of its diction and colors of its that means can fulfill his want extra absolutely with this booklet than in any respect wanting constructing a true command over the Arabic language itself.--Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Islamic suggestion, collage of Chicago
