A NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHERPREFACE TO THE NEW EDITION
All the praises and thanks are to Allah, the Lord of Al-'Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists) and peace be upon the Master of the Messengers, Muhammad.
This interpretation of the meanings of the Noble Qur'an has been revised and the following changes have been made
Translator Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan Formerly Director, University Hospital Islamic University, Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah Saudi Arabia
Islam is the Divine religion for all people on the earth. It is a valuable treasure if they realize its truth. What the whole world needs most today is to understand and study its original sources: the Qur'an and Sunnah, as only
How many trials and wars are people undergoing due to their differences in beliefs and systems which have caused them to split in utter separation. Now there is no way to peace and security except Islam. Therefore, an invitation to Islam is a duty of those who have known it, enjoyed its taste and have been rightly guided by it. In fact, it is a great responsibility upon Muslims to preach the teachings of Islam to the non-Muslims in their own languages.
Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan, a specialist in heart diseases who worked for some time in England, then moved to Saudi Arabia to settle in Al-Madinah AI-Munawwarah, realized his responsibility towards Islam. This was owed to a dream he had one night. According to the dream, he saw the Prophet in a large gathering of people. Out of love, he stepped towards him to kiss his knees; but the Prophet disapproved it. Suddenly, the perspiration began to flow from his body and Muhsin Khan drank it to his satisfaction. Then the Prophet asked him for a paper on which he wrote down that he wanted him (to serve Islam) and stamped it with his seal.
When Muhsin Khan woke up, he was struck by a feeling of bewilderment, awe, and sublimity. He asked the knowledgeable persons to interpret his dream. They indicated that he would serve the Prophet's sayings. So, he looked for a project to serve Islam and convey its message to the English-speaking people. After much consideration, he concluded that Sahih of Imam Al-Bukhari, who is the most authentic collector of the Prophet's sayings, needs to be translated into English. So, he decided to render Sahih Al-Bukhari into English. He worked strenuously completing it in twelve years with the Grace of Allah. During the translation process, he consulted a number of English versions of the Qur'an but he found that they had ambiguity, shortcomings, and dogmatic errors. Therefore, in association with Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali, he undertook the task of interpretation of the meanings of the Noble Qur'an providing evidence from the authentic sources for clarification. At their behest, we brought about a summarized edition in one volume. Its popularity among the readers encouraged them to prepare a comprehensive version of the interpretation of the meanings of the Qur'an in nine volumes comprising a number of Ahadith from Sahih Al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim and other books with comments from Tafsir At-Tabari, Tafsir AI-Qurtubi and Tafsir Ibn Kathir, where necessary to elaborate upon the
In this nine-volume edition, the reader will find that the statements on Monotheism, Disbelief, Polytheism, Hypocrisy
Finally, I wish to express my thanks to the translators for their kind permission to bring about this work for the benefit of the people. I am also grateful to my staff members, particularly Syed Masoodul Hasan, Mr. Mohammad Munawwar and Mr. Mohammad Ayub who made their best efforts to check and reuse the text carefully and repeatedly to avoid any mistakes; and thus contributed substantially to give the final touch to the project. May Allah the Almighty reward us for this achievement, make it solely for His Pleasure and hold us firm on the Right Path.
May Allah shower peace and blessings on our Prophet Muhammad, his family, Companions and all those who follow him.

|Maurice S. on 06/12/2017||Excellent product. Thanks for your prompt service!|
|Customer R. on 06/09/2012||After reading this entire 9 volume set, you will really appreciate the Quran much more. I used this set to teach Islam in English to students in Damascus Syria at the Al-Fateh Islamic Institute. It really helped my students who were becoming Imam's understand how to explain Islam in the English Language much better and with more accuracy. Along with this I also used the Encyclopedia of the Seerah of Prophet Muhammad [9 Volume Set] which is now very hard to find, but well worth the investment, because it really helps understanding Islam in greater detail. This helped my students so much and Insha Allah it will help you as well. Assalamu Alaiikum|
|Customer R. on 08/03/2010||Thanks to Allah, after longing for this tafsir for many days I finally got it. Have nt finished reading even 5 pages but already spellbound by its profound details. This tafsir can be a lot of help if one is reading Tafsir Ibn Kathir but cannot make out anything from it, and even if anyone understands Tafsir Ibn Kathir thoroughly this Noble Quran will still provide him or her with more additional details. I think, as a lay man, both Tafsir Ibn Kathir and this Noble Quran is required to understand Quran in the right perspective. Thank you. May peace be on our Prophet [pbuh]|
|Customer R. on 09/02/2010||Alhamdulillah for great work has been done by Muhsin and Taqiuddin. I am wishing to read the print detailed copy but in Dhaka there is no branch of the publishers.

|Customer R. on 12/01/2008||MashAllah this is a great translation. The layout of the commentary takes a little getting used to but mashAllah it has additional info than what you will find in tafsir ibn kathir so Insha-Allah both are worth getting. This is has more hadith for the ayah and less commentary then ibn kathir.|
|Customer R. on 12/22/2011||Allahu Akbar! This set is nearly perfect. The bindings are all very tight and firm, the print is clear readable in both Arabic and English.

A quality printing of a quality work, and a must have for anyone who seeks to better understand their faith and themselves.|
