THE HOLY QUR’AN Translations of Selected Verses Martin Lings The renowned scholar and Sufi master, the late Dr. Martin Lings was working on a full translation of the Qur’an when he passed away. His translations of verses from the Qur’an were extracted from his previously unpublished writings, and from all his other publications. These are here presented as The Holy Qur’an: Translations of Selected Verses accompanied by the original Arabic text on facing pages. In addition, there is an appendix of Dr Lings’ translation of the Ninejy-nine Beautiful Names of God with the original Arabic and transliteration; and a cross-referenced index which is intended to work as a -minor concordance.

*** “These translations by a master of the English language who is also an eminent student of the Qur’an are of inestimable value.”-Gai Eaton
“In addition to his stunning classical English, Dr. Martin Lings was both a master of Arabic and a brilliant scholar of Islam. This rare combination of skills made him the ideal candidate to translate the Qur’an.” —Hamza Yusuf, Zaytuna Institute
