Since 1934 Abdullah Yusuf Ali's translations has held the prime place among English translations by Muslims,
It was the first monumental and authoritative work of its kind and it subsequently inspired many such similar endeavours. The eloquent poetic style of the translation have, no doubt, contributed greatly to its much deserved reputation as the English translation of the meaning of the Qur'an.
It is, by far, the best known, most studied, and most respected English translation of the Qur'an.
Abdullah Yusuf Ali says in the Preface to the first edition
'The English shall be, not mere substitute of one word for another, but the best expression I can give to the fullest meaning which I can understand from the Arabic text. The rhythm, music, and exalted tone of the original should be reflected in the English interpretation. It may be but a faint reflection, but such beauty and power as my pen commands shall be brought to it's service'
