Only 2000 distinct words in Quraan
As you will see from the statistics, the new words in each Parah decreases drastically. In principle, if you take out the repeated words, the total number of words in Qur'aan may well be less than 2000!!! Allah Subhanahu wa ta'aala has revealed His book which contains so few words. This is another miracle of the Qur'aan. These statistics should give you a strong push to go ahead and continue memorizing till the end of this book, inshaAllah.

    It may be emphasized here that there are around 80,000 words in the Qur’an but the actual words are only around 2000!!! This could also be termed as one of the many miracles of the Qur’an. Accordingly, if a reader decides to learn only 10 new words everyday, he can understand the basic message of the Qur’an within a period of seven months! So it is indeed very easy to understand the Qur’an, provided one is willing to learn it.
    Even though there are many translations of the meanings of the Qur’an, they do not help the reader in linking the Arabic words to their meanings. The only purpose of this word-for-word translation is to facilitate learning the language of the Qur’an. Even though a few word-for-word translations exist but the format of the present work is different from them.

    Unique features
    The book version has been printed in Urdu more than 40 times and is now available in many different languages. It has been a means of bringing numerous peoples closer to the book of Allah. Some of the unique features of this book are:

  • It presents the meanings of the Arabic words of the Qur’aan in the order of their occurrence. It avoids repetition of words to a great extent. However, the words are repeated quite a few times for the facility of the reader.

  • It avoids the painful exercise of locating each word in a dictionary.

  • Since you will learn the Arabic through the Qur’aan, you will have the double advantage, of learning Arabic and learning the Qur’aan. So whatever effort you spend, will directly be counted, Insha-Allah, as ‘hasanah’ (a good deed).

  • You will instantly feel the effects of studying this book in your daily Prayers, insha-Allah. This will encourage you to keep going. Such encouragement may not be there if you learn Arabic from any other source.

  • The internet version alows you to print out, view on computer screen in office or at home. When you take a break, just start memorizing the words of those Surahs you plan to study or review words of those Surahs which you have covered so far.

    Why we have the file in Adobe Acrobat reader (pdf format)
    We tried many different ways to put the file. We saw that it will be difficult for every net user to have Arabic fonts, so we tried to put it jpg and gif formats, but the file size was too large. We finally decided to put in pdf format. With pdf reader you can zoom the size of the text to your preference , you can print it without the need to install Arabic fonts and the file size is comparatively very small. You DO NOT have to download Adobe Acrobat reader for Arabic but your already downloaded English version of Adobe Acrobat reader version 4.05 will work. We have tested the files with Adobe Acrobat Reader, English version 4.05. To download Adobe Reader click here.

    Foreword by Shaikh Syed Abul-Hasan Ali Nadwi
    Written for the original Urdu version of Lughatul-Qur’aan)

    All praise and thanks be to Allah, and peace be upon His chosen bondsmen and women!

    The Qur’aan is the final revealed Book that contains the message of guidance from Allah for all humankind. Accordingly, the salvation as well as worldly welfare of the entire humanity depends upon following the guidance ordained in this Divine Book. In other words, success in this world as well as the Hereafter for humankind is treasured in this great Book. Therefore, there is an endless need to compile Qur’aanic expositions (in the context of modern challenges and evolving circumstances) while calling people towards understanding its eternal message.

    Indeed, blessed are those who have been given the opportunity to serve the Qur’aan in one way or another, and more so if the effort receives general acceptance among the public. This recognition fulfills the very objective of providing an easy way for reading and understanding the Qur’aan.

    Our beloved Al-Haaj AbdulKarim Parekh is one of these fortunate men who has served the Qur’aan. He is well-known through his popular lectures and lifelong service of propagating the message of Islam. He is an ardent caller towards the Qur’aan. In the city of Nagpur, India, his regular Qur’aanic lessons (Dars-e-Qur’aan) have affected the Muslim youth, especially the educated class, and kindled in them the spirit of servitude to Islam and living according to the tenets of the Qur’aan in everyday life. Till this day Shaikh Parekh is engaged in this sterling service to Islam despite his demanding occupation as a merchant.

    His book, entitled Lughatul-Qur’aan, is part of his literary service which he wrote in Urdu in order to convey the message of the Qur’aan among the common and educated class alike so as to make understanding the Qur’aan easy for them. The evidence of its wide acceptance is that within 15 to 20 years, more than a dozen editions of the book have been printed. He has translated the difficult words of each Juz’ (parah) with the help of authentic translations and according to the context in which the word is used. He has also provided the root of the word (verb) wherever necessary. Brief rules of Arabic grammar are also provided at the beginning of the book. This way, the book has become a key for Arabic words as well as a guide to studying the Qur’aan with the least effort.

    It may be mentioned here that because of my busy schedule, I could only browse through the book casually. May Allah reward the author and increase the usefulness and acceptance of the book, Ameen!

    Suggestions For Using This Book Effectively
    Start with Part I and be thorough with it. Spend a couple of days with Part II, since it will be extremely helpful later on. After that you will be ready to study the main part. Just follow these steps:

  • Start from the beginning (Surah Al-Baqarah, Al-e-Imran, and so on).

  • Go page by page or Ruku by Ruku or whatever part of the Qur’aan you are comfortable with.

  • For each part, (a) memorize the meanings of new words; (b) read the translation and try to connect the Arabic words and their meanings with the translation.

  • Read the Tafseer of that part. The Tafseer will remind you of the meanings, and meanings will remind you of the Tafseer. For example, while reciting Surah “the elephant”, if you remember the meaning of just one word, Fil, the whole story of Abraha will come to your mind instantly (if you had read the Tafseer). Further, once the story is there in your mind, it will help you remember the meanings of some of those words in the Surah which you may have forgotten.
