A Concordance of the Qur'an by Hanna E. Kassis

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 haven't any command of the Arabic language and but wish to comprehend the Qur'an. the ease derivable from English translations of the Sacred booklet is, in precept, constrained simply because, first, the Qur'an isn't a "book" yet a set of passages printed 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 charm 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 that means of the Qur'an on any given factor, aspect or proposal. A reader who seems within the index of this concordance for a be aware which he has encountered in examining an English translation of the Qur'an--the be aware satisfaction, 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 types are proven, and the verses of the Qur'an within which they seem are there indexed in translation. . . .I am convinced that any one who's essentially attracted to knowing the Qur'an and appreciating the nuances of its diction and colours of its that means can fulfill his want extra absolutely with this ebook than in any respect in need of constructing a true command over the Arabic language itself.--Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Islamic inspiration, college of Chicago
