LAHORE: A new easy English translation of Holy Quran has been published to facilitate non-native English-speaking people to understand the final divine message.

Addressing the launch of the 'Study the Noble Quran', Abdul Maalik Mujahid, the MD of Darus Salam, said although word-by-word English translations of the Holy Qur'an are available in English, but Study the Noble Qur'an translation has been published with easy English with four colours having literal, idiomatic and word to word translations, making it quite easy to understand the literal meanings of the Arabic words as well as to get the overall meaning of the verses. The multiple and hidden meanings in Arabic words and combinations, he said, are given in the equivalent English words in parentheses and their colours are kept dark. The translation is the work of noted Islamic scholars, Dr Taqiuddin Al-Hilali and Dr Mohsin Khan.
