Qur'an Commentary
Back Home Up


his commentary, a work in progress by Samuel Fosu-Mensah, examines the Quran verse by verse and contrasts it with the Bible. The author is a Christian missionary to Muslims in India and the East. It is the intent of the author to demonstrate to the Muslim the problems inherent in the text of the Qur’an and in the traditional interpretations of the text.

We have published Fosu-Mensahs commentary here with more than a little bit of reluctance. First, we don't need any more death threats — the 14,000+ that were received a while back after my brother began publishing his Islam Commentaries will suffice, thank you. And second, as a thorough knowledge of English grammar is not one of Fosu-Mensahs strong points, at times the language of the commentaries seems a bit awkward. And third, we do not agree with many of his interpretations of Christian doctrine, as we come from a Reformed tradition. However, over all, Fosu-Mensahs work is commendable, as there is a dearth of popular works available on the Internet that examines the Quran critically.

The English text of Fosu-Mensah’s commentary utilizes Yusuf Ali’s translation of the Qur’an, one of the most popular English translations available.  There are two other popular English language translations available as well: one translation is by Marmaduke Mohammad Pickthall,  and another by M. H. Shakir, as published by Tahrike Tarsile Qur’an of Elmhurst, New York. All three English translations of the Qur’an can be reviewed on line at http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/quran/.
