English Translations of the meaning of the Qur'an constitutes an area of stark challenges.  Landing on the versions serving the Islamic purposes; duty of calling people to Islam – spreading Islam- source of knowledge to the believers. Misrepresentations, coinages and concoctions are evident in translations, except a few. However fluent and compelling exegeses may sound interpretation of Holy Qur'an is too demanding and beyond for individuals, achievable under the consistent and intensive examinations by scholarly team work, though.</p> <p>The relative strength and acceptability of the English renderings is remarkably few due to subjectivity and loyalty issues of translator or other governing forces, it seems that they have either forgotten or do not pay heed to the warnings revealed in the Qur'an. The study assesses the relative acceptability of English renderings of the Qur'an on linguistic and religious parameters. Apart from the linguistic and other factors 'God-Consciousness' proved to be the reliable touchstone in exploring the acceptable, referable and readable English translations of the Qur'an for non-Arabic believers of Islam.</p> 2019-01-20T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
