The Message of the Qur’an is widely recognised as among the best English translations and commentaries of the Qur’an and comparable to the famous works of Pickthall, Yusuf Ali and Daryabadi. Asad’s rendering is simple and straightforward. Although widely known as a proponent of conservative Islam, his translation departs from the traditional exegetic approaches and reflects his deep knowledge of Jewish and Christian scriptures. This edition boasts of a comperehensive index and uses the standard Uthmani Qur’anic script.
