A critical study of Arthur John Arberys translation of the meanings of The Holy Quran into English.

( The Quran Interpreted ).

Dr. Abdullah A. Rahman Al-Khateeb

Prof. Associate in The Faculty of Shariah and  Islamic Studies Al-Shariqah University.

 

 

        Translation of the well- known orientalist Arthur Arbery  of The Meanings Of The Holy Quran  is one of the most important orientalist translation  , as it has  a widespread approval among westerners. It is characterized by the  accuracy of its literary style and the wide knowledge of its author in both English and Arabic languages. Arberys attempt was included within the attempts to bridge the gap between West and East. This approximation has been a subject he always called people for. His translation is characterized by fair-mindedness more than other orientalists translation.

 

      He had a fair attitude towards the source of the Holy Quran and prophethood of the Holy Messenger peace be upon him. The translation was free from biased accusations concerning false claims of the Holy Quran being authored by the Holy Prophet. Arbery admitted that the Holy Quran was a literary eternal masterpiece and there was a wonderful association among Holy Quran Ayat ( Verses ). Arbery introduced something new in this translation, that is his attempt to make rhythm in the translation of the Holy Quran trying to make sound effect on the English reader but he failed to do so. The translation was not free from grammatical errors and idiomatic mistakes. The research brought about some examples of these mistakes. Notwithstanding this ,the researcher displayed the scientific value of this translation.
