Translation of Quran in Tafseer
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
All Praise is due to Allah Alone, Who has guided the believers to the Truth of Islam. May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this life and the hereafter for your kind words of encouragement.
Your Question: My question is that do you ppl also have the The TASHREE, I mean the the detailed explanation of the Quran in Enlish as well ? If yes please do send me the address of that site or page. I will be very thankful.
We have provided a link from our website, which will take you directly to the translation of the Glorious Quran in the English language by Brother Abdulla Yusuf Ali. Please do bear in mind that the link will take you only to a translation; not to the ‘tafseer’.
We are not aware of any site on the internet, which has the whole detailed ‘tafseer’ of the Glorious Quran in the English language; but are sure there must be one. We will look into this matter and if we find any, we will mail you the address of that site, Insha Allah.
The easiest way to get access to the detailed ‘tafseer’ of the Glorious Quran in the English language is from an Islamic Bookstore or Islamic Library. Many eminent scholars have written the ‘tafseer’ or detailed translation of the Glorious Quran in the English language. May Allah accept their efforts, be Merciful to them, and grant them honor on the Day when all will be gathered in the Court of Allah Subhanah.
In our humble opinion, among the best ‘tafseers’ of the Glorious Quran in the English language are:
Tafseer Ibn Katheer … This work by Ibn Katheer was originally written in Arabic and is available in 8 or 10 volumes in the English language.
The Meaning of the Quran by Syed Abul Aala Maududi…. This work by Syed Maududi was originally written in Urdu, and is available in 6 volumes in the English language.
Tafseer-ul-Quran by Syed Kutub….. This work by Brother Syed Kutub is probably amongst the best tafseer of the Glorious Quran and is originally in the Arabic language. (We are not sure if it has been translated into the English language yet.)
May Allah bless and increase your quest for the knowledge of Truth from the Glorious Quran. Reading the translation of the Quran will give you a very good idea of the Message of the Lord of the Worlds…but the reading and studying of the ‘tafseer’ or detailed explanation of the Quran, will greatly enhance your knowledge of this Divine Book. It will give you detailed explanation of the period of the Revelation, specific details of the times of where and when the Surahs and aayahs were revealed, under what conditions, and how the Messenger of Allah (saws), his noble companions, and his noble ‘ahle-bayt’ understood the specific aayahs, and implemented the commands of Allah Subhanah in their lives.
If Allah Subhanah has already blessed one to read the translation of the Quran; it would really enhance one’s knowledge, if one studies the ‘tafseer’ of the Glorious Quran.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
