Translation by A. Yusuf Ali


This website reproduces the Original English Translation of the Holy Quran by ‘Abdullāh Yūsuf ‘Alī (with Arabic Text) that was written between 1934 – 1937 and published thereafter – a copyright awarded to Khalil Al-Rawaf in 1946.

The project of publishing this copy online at — —  was initiated on August 11, 2018 to make this rare, yet world renowned translation of the Quran available to anyone with access to an Internet connection – absolutely free of charge.

The online copy is proofread from a copy of the ‘Deedat Quran’ published in print by the Islamic Propagation Centre International and most popularly promoted by Sheikh Ahmed Deedat during his time as an International Comparative Religion daaee in the 80s and 90s.

    • Fareeha, سلام, thank you for asking a relevant question! Adding the Tafseer by Abdullah Yusuf Ali (that appears in the form of footnotes), Appendices and the Index (made Famous by Sheikh Ahmed Deedat) are all planned, however we are currently busy in proofreading the entire copy of the English text, alongside updating the punctuation and other marks within the text. Once this is done we plan to work on the Index next and then the Appendices. Until then, please keep visiting the site and share it with people who may benefit.

  1. I am the head Chaplin for Essex County Sheriff Dept of Corrections. I have inmates who have requested this text specifically. They do not have access to the internet so can not read it online. Is it possible to get hard copies to provide to the inmates?
    Thank you Chaplain Katie
