About The Book
One of the Best available Translations Currently Available.
This is a simpler, clearer and easier to read translation than many of the popular ones which proceeded it.
Saheeh International reviewed each verse in Arabic with reference to several works of Arabic tafseer and grammar, choosing contemporary wording and carefully placing them in order similar to that of the original Arabic whenever possible.
'Without going into excessive detail, a word is due here about the methodology of this abbreviated edition. Three main objectives have served as guidelines:
This acclaimed translation of the meanings of the Holy Qur'an has set new standards of readability and accuracy, for the benefit of everyone needing a resource of the Qur'an in English. It is now available in paperback form for ease in carrying and distribution.
Readers will appreciate the clear, modern English, the smooth flow of sentences, and the concise footnotes which give necessary information but allow uninterrupted reading of the main text.
The scholars and translators of Saheeh International have paid careful attention to authentic sources of hadeeth and tafsir and have made comparisons with previous classic English translations. The result is a highly accessible and reliable work that can be used by anyone wanting to study the authentic meanings of the Holy Qur'an
Very Clearly Laid Out

Parenthetical remarks found in other Saudi Translations are largely removed, the translation is attractive and useable. The proper use of square brackets […] to indicate an addition by the translator is attractive.
'No person can afford to be ignorant of the Qur'an, for it is the constitution revealed by God (Allah) to regulate and govern human life. It speaks with perfect knowledge of the Creator about his creation. It exposes the truth. It contains important information about human destiny and that of the individual. It educates and raises men to the highest moral, intellectual and social level when they strive to comprehend it and apply its teachings to life.' - [Taken from the inside cover]
