Irfan-ul-Quran is a unique translation of the Holy Quran, which is distinct from other available translations in a number of ways. Following are the chief characteristics of Irfan-ul-Quran, which distinguish it from others:

  • This translation is uniformly understandable for every mental level and has unique style of description characterized by idiomatic language and simplicity.
