List of translations of the Quran
Translations of the Qur'an are interpretations of the scripture of Islam in languages other than Arabic. The Qur'an was originally written in the Arabic language and has been translated into most major African, Asian and European languages. The translation of the Qur'an into modern languages has always been a difficult issue in Islamic theology. Because Muslims revere the Qur'an as miraculous and inimitable i'jaz al-Qur'an , they argue that the Qur'anic text should not be isolated from its true form to another language or written form, at least not without keeping the Arabic text with it. Furthermore, an Arabic word, like a Hebrew or Aramaic word, may have a range of meanings depending on the context — a feature present in all Semitic languages , when compared to English, Latin, and Romance languages — making an accurate translation even more difficult. According to Islamic theology, the Qur'an is a revelation very specifically in Arabic, and so it should only be recited in Quranic Arabic. Translations into other languages are necessarily the work of humans and so, according to Muslims, no longer possess the uniquely sacred character of the Arabic original.
