THE CLEAR QURAN® Series DICTIONARY
Introducing the world’s first picture dictionary of the Quran’s 2,000+ entries, with the goal of empowering the majority of Muslims (who are not Arabs) to read the Quran in its original, rich Arabic form in just 4-6 months, without having to rely on translations. Five years in the works, this dictionary highlights the connection between all words that share the same root. It’s very straightforward, not indulging in redundant details or overly academic discussions that make the book irrelevant. For anyone who has always aspired to have a personal connection with the Book of Allah in Arabic, this dictionary is a dream come true.
A FEW WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR, DR. KHATTAB
Alhamdulillah. For the last five years, I’ve been working on The Clear Quran Dictionary. It all started with a complaint from a brother who said he couldn’t understand Quranic recitations in Taraweeh because Arabic wasn’t his native tongue. After much thinking and deliberation, I decided to work on a dictionary that would help non-Arabs understand the Quran in Arabic in only 4-6 months. I scribbled the Arabic alphabet on my desk and said Bismillah. Now, with the help of Allah, after all the challenges–including a global pandemic–and a journey that spanned Canada, Egypt, Istanbul, Makkah and Madinah, I’m thrilled to announce that this awesome dictionary will be released around Ramadan of this year in-sha-Allah. I couldn’t have done it without my dedicated team of editors, illustrators, designers, sponsors, calligrapher, and many others.
