Towards Understanding The Quran is an abridged version of the multi-volume Tafhim al-Qur’an by Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi (1903-1979), a leading Islamic scholar who is very well regarded among Muslims. It contains a complete English translation of the Quran (with Arabic original text on the facing page) along with selected commentary by Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi. This edition was translated and edited by Zafar Ishaq Ansari and is published by The Islamic Foundation.
This is an excellent book for non-Muslims seeking information about the Quran and Islamic theology. It is the translation of, and commentary on, the Quran which Robert Spencer uses in his speeches.
We recommend buying the hardcover edition. Available through Amazon.com and these Amazon affiliates:
