The Message of the Quran By Muhammad Asad

By The Book Foundation

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


If all the sea were ink for my Sustainer’s words, the sea would indeed be exhausted ere my Sustainer’s words are exhausted. (Qur’an 18:109)

The Book Foundation is pleased to present the Message of the Quran mobile app.

The Message of the Quran is widely considered among the best of the English language translations of the Quran.

“Extremely coherent, incisive, and thought provoking translation”

It has been widely favoured by substantial institutions and governments around the world as there exists no more useful guide to the Qur'an in the English language, and no other translator has come so close to conveying the meaning of the Qur'an to those who may not be able to read the Arabic text or the classical commentaries.

Amazon readers give the translation a 4.7 out of a 5 star rating.

Asad’s commentary is by universal consent the most suited to the Western mind. The positive potential of its impact on so many people capable of influencing public opinion and shaping public policy could be inestimable in supporting initiatives of mutual respect between communities.
