The Noble Quran, also informally known as the Hilali-Khan translation

Interpretation of the Meanings of the Noble Qur'an (1999) by Darussalam (first published 1977) is translated by Muhammad Muhsin Khan and Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali. This translation is among the most widely read translations in the world, primarily because it is the officially promoted translation of the Saudi Government.

This English translation was sponsored by the Saudi government and is provided free. It has been reported to be the most popular and "Now the most widely disseminated Qur'an in most Islamic bookstores and Sunni mosques throughout the English-speaking world, this new translation is meant to replace the Yusuf 'Ali edition and comes with a seal of approval from both the University of Medina and the Saudi Dar al-Ifta. This venture utilizes mainstream classical sources of commentaries namely, Tabari, Qurtubi, and Ibn Kathir.

As with any translation of the original Arabic into another language, in this case English, this is an interpretation of the meanings of the Noble Qur'an (Word of God). The translation is heavily interspersed with commentaries and notes from At-Tabari, Al-Qurtubi and Ibn Kathir.

Mushin Khan completed the translation in twelve years, during which he consulted a number of English versions of the Qur'an but had found that they had ambiguity, shortcomings and dogmatic errors. So later, 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 evidences from the authentic sources for clarification.

Abdul Malik Mujahid also said that Khan and Hilali behested that Darussalam Publishers and Distributors bring 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-Tabd, Tafsir AI-Qurtubi and Tafsir Ibn Kathir, where necessary to elaborate upon the Qur'anic Verses."

The Quran is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God (Arabic: الله‎, Allah). It is widely regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. Muslims consider the Quran to be the only book that has been protected by God from distortion or corruption. However, some significant textual variations (employing different wordings) and deficiencies in the Arabic script mean the relationship between the text of today's Quran and an original text is unclear. Quranic chapters are called suras and verses are called ayahs....

Qurani (Qur'an) (Quran katika Kiswahili)

Qur'an (kwa Kiarabu: القرآن) ni kitabu kitukufu cha Uislamu. Qur'an inatazamiwa na Waislamu kama "Neno la Allah (Mwenyezi Mungu)". Kitabu hiki kwao ni tofauti kabisa na maandiko ya vitabu vya dini nyingine kwa maana hicho kinaaminika kwamba kimeandikwa moja kwa moja na Mwenyezi Mungu, kupitia mtume wake wa mwisho, Muhammad.

Lugha na tafsiri
Imeandikwa na kusomwa kwa lugha ya Kiarabu pekee kwa zaidi ya miaka 1,400.
Kadiri ya Qurani (42:8), Mungu alimuambia Muhammad: "Na namna hivi tumekufunulia Qurani kwa Kiarabu ili uwaonye watu wa Makka na walio pembeni mwake"
Lakini, kwa vile leo Waislamu walio wengi ulimwenguni hawajui Kiarabu, maana halisi ya Qur'an hutolewa kwa lugha nyingine, hivyo kupelekea wasomaji kuelewa vyema yale maneno ya Kiarabu kwenye Qur'an yana maana gani. Vitabu hivyo ni kama kamusi kwa ajili ya Qur'an - hawavisomi hivi kama moja ya sehemu ya Quran tukufu na Waislam, ili kuwa badala ya Quran ya Kiarabu.
Waislamu wengi wanaamini kwamba tafsiri ile siyo ya Qur'an tukufu na wala siyo ya kweli; ni kopi ya Kiarabu tu iliyotolewa kwenye Qur'an ya kweli.

Waislamu wanaamini kwamba Qur'an tukufu mtume Muhammad alipewa na malaika Jibrīl kwenye pango la mlima Hira, kwa kipindi cha zaidi ya miaka ishirini na tatu hadi mauti wake ilipomfikia.
Qur'an tukufu haikuwa kitabu cha maandiko wakati wa uhai wa mtume Muhammad; iliwekwa kwa mawasiliano ya kimdomo tu. Bimaana, watu walihifadhi kichwani.
Mtume labda hakuwa anajua kusoma wala kuandika, lakini kwa mujibu wa Waislamu, swahaba wake Abu Bekr alikuwa akiandika maandiko yale juu ya kitu fulani wakati huo mtume Muhammad yu hai. Pale Abu Bekr alipokuja kuwa khalifa, ameileta Qur'an na kuwa kitabu kitakatifu.
Uthman, ambaye ni khalifa wa tatu, ameondoa vipengele ambavyo vilikuwa havihusiani na Qur'an tukufu.

Elementi, Sura, Mistari, Aya
Kuna sehemu 30 katika Qur'an, ambayo inafanya kuwa na sura 114. Kila sura ina namba tofauti ya mistari.
Kwa mujibu wa mafunzo ya Kiislam, sura 86 kati ya hizi zimeshuka mjini Makka, sura 24 kati ya hizi zimeshuka mjini Madina.
Miongoni mwa sura zilizoshushwa mjini Medina ni pamoja na Al-Baqara, Al Imran, Al-Anfal, Al-Ahzab, Al-Ma'ida, An-Nisa, Al-Mumtahina, Az-Zalzala, Al-Hadid, Muhammad , Ar-Ra'd, Ar-Rahman, At-Talaq, Al-Bayyina, Al-Hashr, An-Nasr, An-Nur, Al-Hajj, Al-Munafiqun, Al-Mujadila, Al-Hujraat, At-Tahrim, At-Taghabun, Al-Jumua, As-Saff, Al-Fath, At-Tawba, Al-Insan.

Mahusiano baina Qur'an na Biblia
Katika Qu'ran tukufu, inasomwa kwamba Wayahudi na Wakristo pia huamini Mungu wa kweli. Dini hizi pamoja na Uislamu huitwa za Abrahamu kwa sababu ya mahusiano haya.
Kuna baadhi ya kurasa za Qu'ran zinazoelezea habari za mambo ya watu wa katika Biblia. Kwa mfano watu wa katika Biblia waliotajwa kwenye Qu'ran ni pamoja na Adamu, Nuhu, Abraham, Lutu, Ismaili, Yakobo, Yosefu, Haruni, Musa, mfalme Daudi, Solomoni, Elisha, Yona, Yobu, Zakaria, Yohane Mbatizaji, Bikira Maria na Yesu.
Hata hivyo, kuna tofauti za muhimu kabisa baina ya Uislamu na toleo la Biblia katika kuelezea habari za aina moja. Kwa mfano, Qu'ran tukufu inaelezea kwamba Yesu Kristo si Mwana wa Mungu, kama jinsi Wakristo wanavyoamini; kwa Waislamu, alikuwa nabii tu, anayeheshimiwa kwa jina la Isa bin Mariamu.
Uislamu unafundisha kwamba haya yanatokea kwa sababu maandiko ya awali ya Biblia yamepotea na hivyo kuna baadhi ya watu wameyabadilisha. Lakini nje ya Qu'ran hakuna uthibitisho wa fundisho hilo....

The Qur’an is a Message from Allah to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty Himself to the angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad (saas). This message was given to the Prophet in pieces over a period spanning approximately 23 years (610 CE to 622 CE). The Prophet was 40 years old when the Qur'an began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was completed. The language of the original message was Arabic, but it has been translated into many other languages. This is an electronically version of M. H. Shakir's translation of the Holy Qur'an....

The King James Version (KJV), commonly known as the Authorized Version (AV) or King James Bible (KJB), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, this was the third translation into English to be approved by the English Church authorities. The first was the Great Bible commissioned in the reign of King Henry VIII, and the second was the Bishops' Bible of 1568. In January 1604, King James I convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations as detected by the Puritans, a faction within the Church of England.
James gave the translators instructions intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in an ordained clergy. The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England. In common with most other translations of the period, the New Testament was translated from Greek, the Old Testament was translated from Hebrew text, while the Apocrypha were translated from the Greek and Latin. In the Book of Common Prayer (1662), the text of the Authorized Version replaced the text of the Great Bible – for Epistle and Gospel readings – and as such was authorized by Act of Parliament. By the first half of the 18th century, the Authorized Version was effectively unchallenged as the English translation used in Anglican and Protestant churches. Over the course of the 18th century, the Authorized Version supplanted the Latin Vulgate as the standard version of scripture for English speaking scholars. Today, the most used edition of the King James Bible, and often identified as plainly the King James Version, especially in the United States, closely follows the standard text of 1769, edited by Benjamin Blayney at Oxford....

International Bible. World English Bible
The World English Bible (also known as the WEB) is a free updated revision of the American Standard Version (1901). It is one of the only public domain, modern-English translations of the entire Bible. The Bible was created on the base of the ASV by volunteers on the ebible.org project and edited by Rainbow Missions, Inc., a Colorado nonprofit corporation.
Features
It claims to be one of the few English-language Bibles custom translated to be understood by most English-speakers, worldwide, eliminating the need for data-processing based or computer operating system-specific internationalizations. Work on the World English Bible began in 1997 and was first known as the American Standard Version 1997.
The World English Bible project was started to produce a modern English Bible version that is not copyrighted, does not use archaic English (such as the KJV), and is not translated in Basic English (such as the Bible In Basic English). The World English Bible follows the American Standard Version's decision to transliterate the Tetragrammaton, but updates "Jehovah" to be "Yahweh". The British and Messianic Names editions use the traditional forms (e.g. the LORD).
Also includes the following Apocryphal books (in the following order):
- Tobit
- Judith
- Additions to Esther (additions found in the LXX namely Esther 10:4-16:24)
- Wisdom (Also known as the Wisdom of Solomon)
- Ecclesiasticus (or Sirach)
- Baruch
- Epistle of Jeremy (or the Letter of Jeremy)
- Prayer of Azarias (Daniel 3:24-97 in the LXX & Vulgate)
- Susanna (Daniel 13 in the LXX & Vulgate)
- Bel and the Dragon (Daniel 14 in the LXX & Vulgate)
- I Maccabees
- II Maccabees
- 1 Esdras
- Prayer of Manasses
- Psalm 151
- III Maccabees
- IV Maccabees
- 2 Esdras
Translation philosophy
It is based on the 1901 American Standard Version, the Greek Majority Text, and the Hebrew Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia with some minor adjustments made because of alternate readings in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Septuagint although usually these alternate readings are ignored or restricted to the footnotes. There are seven passes of editing and proofreading for each book. An initial automated pass updated approximately 1,000 archaic words, phrases and grammatical constructs. The first manual pass was to add quotation marks (the ASV had none) and other punctuation, and to check the translation against the Greek and Hebrew texts where there are significant textual variants or the meaning is unclear....
