By Hanna E. Kassis

From the ForewordThis Concordance of the Qur'an in English satisfies a paramount want of those--and there are literally thousands of them--who don't have any command of the Arabic language and but wish to comprehend the Qur'an. the convenience derivable from English translations of the Sacred booklet is, in precept, constrained simply because, first, the Qur'an isn't really a "book" yet a set of passages published to Muhammad over a interval of approximately twenty-three years and, moment, as the Qur'an just isn't translatable. this doesn't suggest that the Qur'an shouldn't be translated. It does suggest that translations lose a lot in tone and nuance, not to mention the incommunicable good looks, grandeur, and charm of the unique. . . .The major contrast of Hana Kassis's concordance, in my opinion, is that it makes use of the semantic constitution of Arabic vocabulary itself in revealing the that means of the Qur'an on any given factor, aspect or proposal. A reader who seems within the index of this concordance for a notice which he has encountered in analyzing an English translation of the Qur'an--the be aware delight, for example--is directed instantly to the roots of the Arabic, Qur'anic phrases for satisfaction. At tne entries for those Arabic roots, all of the spinoff varieties are proven, and the verses of the Qur'an within which they seem are there indexed in translation. . . .I am convinced that any individual who's basically attracted to figuring out the Qur'an and appreciating the nuances of its diction and colors of its that means can fulfill his want extra absolutely with this booklet than whatsoever wanting constructing a true command over the Arabic language itself.--Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Islamic concept, collage of Chicago
