I have the Quran in Arabic and
in opposite on the same sheet
in German. Is it permissible to
read it in Arabic and if I don't
understand words to read the
German text? Please give me
one answer and one result only.

All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

Quran is the miraculous
composition in words and
letters. So, it is not permitted to
read its translation in prayer or
outside it with the intention of
Tilaawah (recitation) since such
translation is not a Quran nor
similar to it, whether one can
learn Arabic or cannot. This is
the opinion of the majority of
the Muslim scholars.

On the other hand, if one
intends to understand the
meanings of the Quran through
reading the translation, then
there is no objection in Shari'ah
if the verses are written in the
transliteration of non-Arabic
language, i.e. to write the
pronunciation of Arabic letter in
similar non-Arabic letters so
that there will be no change in
pronunciation or intonation as
stated in the Quran.

Thus, so many languages do not
have letters that are available in
Arabic. We think achieving such
a state is difficult, and one will
not be able to read the Quran
correctly if the pronunciation
and intonation of the Quranic
words written in non-Arabic
letters (i.e. Transliteration).

Anyway, we have supposed that
may be there are some
languages with identical letters
and forms of pronunciation as
in Arabic, although we believe it
is rare. So, if the inquirer can
read letters as they are
pronounced in Arabic, then
there is no blame on him,
otherwise, he is not permitted
to read as mentioned in his

Allah knows best.
