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 booklet is, in precept, restricted 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 will never be 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 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 suggestion. A reader who seems within the index of this concordance for a note which he has encountered in examining an English translation of the Qur'an--the note 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 spinoff varieties are proven, and the verses of the Qur'an during which they seem are there indexed in translation. . . .I am convinced that anyone who's basically drawn to realizing the Qur'an and appreciating the nuances of its diction and colours of its that means can fulfill his want extra absolutely with this e-book than by any means in need of constructing a true command over the Arabic language itself.--Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Islamic inspiration, college of Chicago
