About this title

Synopsis:

Muhammad Asad's translation and commentary is widely considered the best in the English language, renowned for its intellectual insight and frequent reference to classical commentaries such as Zamakhshari.

About the Author:

Muhammad Asad, a German by descent, ranks highly among the select group of well-known 20th century converts to Islam who subsequently took up scholarship. After his conversion, he travelled widely in the Gulf region during the tumultuous 1930s and 1940s. He later settled in Pakistan upon its creation in 1947, and was Pakistan's ambassador to the United Nations during the 1960s. He died in late 1992. His variety of experience, in the Gulf during its still unadulterated pre-WWII Bedouin lifestyle, to his presence in the high civilization of America in the 1960s, makes him a unique gentleman to understand both the environment the Qur'an originally flourished in, as well as its relevancy to modern times.
