Some of the many Quran translations by Ahmadi translators at the 2009 Frankfurt Book Fair

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has translated the Quran into over 70 languages of the world.[1] Portions of the scripture have been translated into multiple other languages. The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement has produced translations into at least 7 languages. The period of the late 1980s and the early 1990s saw an acceleration in the number of translations being produced by the Ahmadiyya movement.

Some of the earliest translations were produces by Ahmadi Muslim scholars and today there are still many languages for which only translations authored by Ahmadi Muslims exist. All translations are published alongside the Arabic text.

Publications

The translations of the Quran authored by Ahmadi Muslim scholars always feature translated verses alongside the original Arabic text. Before the translations are published, they are checked, scrutinized and proof-read by a wide array of individuals for errors. A similar procedure is undertaken when revised versions of the translations are produced. In particular, guidance is sought from the caliph of the Community with regards to textual and other linguistic difficulties. Since the majority of the Quran translations have been made available from the 1980s, most translations have sought advice from Caliph IV and Caliph V.

List of complete translations

The translations of the Quran by Ahmadi Muslims have been listed below. The list has been divided by regions of the world. The translations produced by the main Ahmadiyya Muslim Community have been numbered, excluding multiple translations into the same language. Translations produced by members of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement have been starred (*) in place of numbering for the purpose of identification.
