Ahmed Zaki Hammad, The Gracious Quran: A Modern-Phrased Interpretation in English (2008)
And for all in the English-speaking world who
may derive from the Heavenly Book, even in the
smallest degree, the impulse to seek divine
guidance for a meaningful life,
here and in the Hereafter.
And for The very special people
who have immeasurably enriched my life
— as a son, a brother, a husband, a father,
a friend, a student, and a teacher —
and who have enabled me to enjoy
an ever-rewarding study
of the Gracious Quran and the graced Prophet (s).
And Especially for my wife,
a beacon of unfailing light
through all the reaches of my life —
may she be ever blessed with God's light.
