Sura Baqarah: Word for Word English translation by Zaheen Fatima Baig
Produced under the guidance of Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips by Zaheen Fatima Baig, a retired English teacher, who wanted to meet the needs of the students in the English medium schools to understand each and every word of the Qur'an. This may be the best word for word translation of the Qur'an available in the English language. Two lines of transliteration, one for individual words, the other for the entire line, further add to the usefulness for those who cannot read Arabic.
"It is structured in a very reader-friendly format. This and the simplicity of the language makes it different from all other translations available. The three volumes have been proof-read by Dr Bilal Phillips and Abdur Razzak, a well-known scholar of Riyadh University. They have also been certified by the Ministry of Awqaf, Dubai." Gulf News.
From the foreword by Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips: "She has incorporatd a system of translation which I suggested some years back to facilitate the readers to understand the translated Arabic text and the number of other suggestions which I made with regard to the translated text."
