From the ForewordThis Concordance of the Qur'an in English satisfies a paramount want of those--and there are 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 suite of passages published to Muhammad over a interval of approximately twenty-three years and, moment, as the Qur'an seriously isn't 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 beauty of the unique. . . .The major contrast of Hana Kassis's concordance, for my part, 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 thought. A reader who seems to be within the index of this concordance for a be aware 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 satisfaction. At tne entries for those Arabic roots, all of the spinoff varieties 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 drawn to realizing the Qur'an and appreciating the nuances of its diction and colors of its that means can fulfill his desire extra absolutely with this publication than by any means in need of constructing a true command over the Arabic language itself.--Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Islamic concept, collage of Chicago
