Verse 195 of Chapter 26 of the Qur'an makes it clear that the Qur'an is revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in Arabic. It is best read and studied in its original language. However, a translation of the meanings of the Qur'an is necessary for non-Arab readers. lt should be put in mind that no translation, however excellent it is, could be comprehensive and inclusive of the meanings intended in the Arabic text. It is miraculous not only in its content but in its rhetorical language as well. In prayer, a Muslim should read the parts of the Qur'an in Arabic, the Qur'an's original language.
