    Default Qur'an Translation by Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi - Yes or No?





    Someone purchased a mushaf with Urdu translation. I happened to notice on the cover that the translation was done by Imam Ahmed Raza Khan "Barelvi". Thanks to SF, I have heard the term 'barelvi' and what it allegedly entails. However, I'm not sure if the "Barelvi" at the end of this name may actually be a part of his name or does it mean that he is "a" barelvi.

    Most importantly, should I ask the person who purchased this mushaf to return it and exchange for a translation by someone else, or is the translation by Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi considered to be genuine like any other translation by a qualified scholar? I just don't want the person to start reading this translation if it is supposed to have any 'issues' with it.

    Here is a picture of the cover of the Mushaf I am talking about:

    for any help.

    I am not a scholar.

    Say Allahu-Akbar when you see this.

    for the reply brother. So then am I to assume that this translation has 'issues' and should not be read?

    I am not a scholar.

    Yes, there are issues with the way Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi translated the Qur'an. He has inserted his own beliefs into the translation instead of giving a direct translation. For example, the sentence - قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُكُمْ - is mentioned a couple of times in the Qur'an. It literally means, "Say 'Verily I am a man like you'." Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi mistranslates it as following, "Say you, 'apparently in facial outlook of a man, I am like you'," which makes people who don't know Arabic and who don't have access to other translations to believe that Barelvi aqeedah is in the Qur'an.

    In Urdu, the sentence which is found in surah Kahf says the following:
    ياايها الذين امنوا اذكروا الله ذكرا كثيرا

    Kanz Ul Iman by Ala Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan is one of the best translations of the Qur'an in the urdu language.

    Maarif ul Quran is also a very good translation of thr Holy Qur'an into urdu.

    I wonder how would one realize if a translation is good or not without knowing Arabic oneself.

    this is so confusing.
    Recite Durood every time you read this.

    Do not distort the Name of Allah 'Al - Wahhab' just to mock the teachings of Sh. Mohammad ibn Abdul Wahhab.

    Mate you aint a scholar, so don't judge scholars!

    This is one of the best translations of the Qur'aan around.
    Da sorrow in my heart wil remain, until I'm given da glad tidings of Jannah,
    Until I hold my book in my right hand+my eyes r cooled by da sight of RasoolAllaah
