Translated Quran

Assalaam Alaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakatuhu

Welcome to the translation of the Holy Quran Online. For a long time, I and others have been looking for a simple interface to the translation of the Holy Quran in English. Inshallah, I hope this attempt will make it easier for us to read the Quran on the web or at home in its electronic form. For those new to the Quran, the word Quran (kurr-‘aan) itself means recitation.

The Quran is the last revelation to humanity and has been unchanged since it was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, in the 7th century. The Quran’s 114 chapters (Surahs) and 6236 verses (Ayahs) are the source of every Muslim’s faith and practice.

The Quran has had such a powerful effect on all those who have read its words; From Umar ibn al-Khattab, one of the greatest enemies and persecutors of Islam, who read the first 14 verses of Surah Ta-Ha and was so struck by them, he not only became Muslim, but also one of Islam’s strongest champions; To German born convert Muhammad Asad who early this century described the Quran as “the ultimate manifestation of God’s grace to man, the ultimate wisdom, and the ultimate beauty of expression: in short, the word of God.” One thing to note is that this is the English translation of the meaning of the Quran , not the Quran itself. The Quran is in its original, pristine Arabic as it was revealed from Allah.

Someone new to these verses may not fully understand the verses and may take them out of context. One must look into all the verses in relation to each other and the Sunnah and Hadith (example and traditions of the prophet (s)), the context of revelation, Commentary (commentaries), the original lexical Arabic and scholarly understanding to fully interpret the Quran’s meaning. However, it is highly encouraged for every Muslim to read the Quran and hopefully this English translation will be a good reference.

As Abdullah Yusuf Ali says, “It is the duty of every Muslim – man, woman, or child – to read the Quran and understand it according to his own capacity.” May Allah reward him for his life’s work, for it has changed my life and millions of others irrevocably by allowing us to read the words of God’s divine guidance.

Suhar (Sohar) in the Early Islamic Period:

The Written Evidence

In 280/893 the first Imamate of Oman ('Umam) collapsed in civil war and for approximately a century and a half its overseas commerce fell into the hand of foreigners or their vassals. It was during this foreign occupation or the coast that Suhâr (Sohar) underwent the major transformation which led Muqaddasi (p. 92) to describe it as “the hallway of China, the storehouse of the East (Persia) and al-‘Iraq, and the support of al-Yaman”. ...

Study on Abadhite waqf and its applications Mzab

Work-based sources Ibadi is an unusual phenomenon too, not to attract attention, It is aware that the study of the world is not Ibadite, in fact, in its initial phase ; indeed, sources still have not "been very little examined, for the simple reason that they are, mostly, or unknown, or even inaccessible to science.
