Description from the Publisher: Mawlana Maududi’s translation and commentary on the Qur’an, “The Meaning of the Qur’an”, ranks as one of the best such works in existence today. Unlike many early translators, Mawlana Maududi uses the standard technique of providing an explanation of the Qur’anic verses from the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh), including the historical reasons behind the verses.
