Dec 27, Messages: Has anybody read the Arberry translation of the Quran? How does it compare to other translations? I would appreciate any opinions from Arabic speakers.

Arberry was a non-Muslim orientalist. His translation was first published inwhich means it is now 60 years old. During these years, better and more accurate translations have been produced, including the translation of Sahih International in the s and the Oxford translation of Dr. Abdel Haleem in This year, a new translation was produced in the US, edited by Dr.

Nasr, titled The Study Qur’an which I have not yet read but you may also wish to check.

The Koran Interpreted by A.J. Arberry

Not an easy question, as each translator has a special methodology. Some translations of the meanings of the Qur’an incorporate tafsir in the actual translated text, while others refer arberr them in the footnotes.

On the other hand, a literal translation word for word would not do justice to the arbery to understand the original text, so I believe that unconsciously many translators also convey their own understanding and interpretation of the Arabic text.


In summary, each of the available English translations has strong points and weak points. For more info on the latest translation mentioned above by Dr. Nasr, you may wish to check this review which was just published yesterday: FearGod Freedom Of Mind.
