The Message of the Qur'an
Muhammad Asad

A progressive and rational interpretation of the Qur'an by one of the greatest Islamic scholars of the 20th century. His 50 year study across the Muslim world, spending years in the deserts of Arabia and the libraries of Mecca, Medina and Egypt, has made this one of the most specialized studies of the Qur'anic message with extensive notes on the Arabic language, contexts of the verses and next to his own insights also the opinions of classical Islamic Tafsir scholars. It is one of the best translations and explanations of the Qur'an.

The Qur'an; A Reformist Translation
by Dr.Edip Yuksel
Layth Saleh al-Shaiban
Dr.Martha Schulte-Nafeh

A modern and social scientific translation of the Qur'an by a Turkish-American Muslim reformer and philosophy professor, in cooperation with Muslim reformer Layth As-Shaiban and professor of Arabic Martha Schulte-Nafeh, thus making this unique translation a result of 2 males and 1 female. Many of its commentary deals with controversial issues and misunderstandings of Quranic verses. A very good presentation and one of the best translations of the Qur'anic text.

The Holy Quran
Maulana Muhammad Ali

Muhammed Ali's understanding of the Qur'an is a must-read for everybody. His universal and inclusive approach, and his use of classical as well as modern Tafsir (especially Sayyid Ahmed Khan), makes this one of the best rational and honest commentaries on the Qur'an. Being from the Lahori Ahmediyya, which is not dogmatic secterian as the Qadani counterpart, he has been wrongfully labelled as heretical. His innovating insights show the progress of Muslim thought in the 20th century.

مصحف الامام القران الكريم

The mushaf al-Imam, a copy of the Tashkent Qur'an manuscript which uses a pre-classical Kufic script of the Arabic. It is written in the Arabic style which was present at the time of the revelation of the Qur'an; it lacked any phonetic symbols to determine thet difference between the B, T, N, Y, Q, F, R, Z etc. This was determined by the recitation-style for which the Qur'an manuscript was a guide. This 'rasm' style of the Qur'anic text leaves many potentials open in meaning.

Jalaluddin Al-Suyuti (جلال الدين السيوطي‎)
(c. 1445–1505 AD)

One of the most famous Islamic scholars of the late middle ages. He wrote extensively on the sciences of the Qur'an, Islamic history and Hadith studies. His most famous work is Tafsir al-Jalalayn which is a one volume commentary of the Qur'an which he created together with his teacher. It represents the classical abrogation theories and because of its small size showed the regress and simplification of Islamic knowledge that started in his time. It is one of the most used commentaries in the Muslim world today, due to its simple and short explanations.

Fi Zilal al-Qur'an - In the Shade of the Qur'an
Sayyid Qutb

It is considered by some to be a comprehensive and far-reaching tafsir (commentary) that takes a clear and lucid interpretation of the Qur'an. Qutb used his literary background in this Tafsir, deviating from the classical methods, and so producing new insights in understanding the Qur'an. This technique is what makes his commentary intruiging and groundbreaking. But because of his social-historical context, his struggle agains the Egyptian regime, he turned against everything he saw as imperialism and took over Maudoodi's black and white view of the world where everything is divided into Islam or Jahiliyya. His struggle was inspired by his dedication to social justice, but his dissapointment and eventual hatred of the regimes in Muslim countries made his worldview fundamentalistic. This is what must be kept in mind when reading his Tafsir.

Tafheem ul Qur'an Towards Understanding the Quran

by Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi

A lively and highly readable English rendering of Tafhim al-Qur'an. This tafsir answers contemporary questions and makes the Qur'an fully relevant to the concerns of our day, yet it loses none of its timelessness nor sacrifices any of the traditional understanding. Each Surah is prefaced by an account of the background and teachings. Maps and indexes add greatly to the work.

Maudoodi wrote this tafsir to show his political understanding of Islam, which was a response to the Western and Soviet colonisation and political influence of his time. Although it has many great insights, his totalitarian approach to Islam curbes the liberal and flexible message of the Qur'an.

A Concordance of the Qur'an
by Hana Kassis

The main distinction of Hana Kassis's concordance, in my view, is that it utilizes the semantic structure of Arabic vocabulary itself in revealing the meaning of the Qur'an on any given issue, point or concept. A reader who looks in the index of this concordance for a word which he has encountered in reading an English translation of the Qur'an-the word pride, for example-is directed immediately to the roots of the Arabic, Qur'anic terms for pride. At tne entries for these Arabic roots, all the derivative forms are shown, and the verses of the Qur'an in which they appear are there listed in translation
