“The function to release the Marathi translation of the Holy Quran would be held on January 24, 2010 at Hajj House in Mumbai at 10:00 in the morning”, said a statement issued by President of Jamiat Ahle Hadees Greater Mumbai Maulana Abdus Salam Salafi and President of Jamiat Ahle Hadees Maharashtra Dr. Saeed Ah Faizee.

After releasing the Marathi translation of the Holy Quran next day on January 24 at Hajj House, the Conference will continue at Jhula Maidan in Mumbai center”, the statement added.


According to the statement, renowned scholars from India and abroad have confirmed their participation in the International Quran Conference that will take place at various venues in Mumbai on January 23, & 24, 2010.


While the President of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Islamic Awakening Centre, New Delhi and noted scholar Maulana Abdul Hameed Rahmani will preside over the conference, noted scholar and Editor of Sirat-e-Mustaqueem Birmingham, UK Dr. Abdul Haadi will grace the occasion as keynote speaker.

Ahsanul Bayaan is considered as one of the authentic Urdu translations widely read in the Indian sub continent. Few years back, it was also published by the Saudi Arabian Govt. through its Quran Centre in Madinah, said the statement.


Jamiat Ahle-Hadees Maharashtra the publisher and sponsor of the entire project of the Marathi Translation of the Holy Quran to be released on January 24 at Hajj House took four years to complete the work.


“Translating the Quran has never been an easy task. For, it requires lot of concentration, determination and efforts so that it does not have any mistake. Doing it in a language like Marathi was even more difficult”, Dr. Saeed Faizee said while speaking to


“However", he added, "Considering the importance of the Marathi language in Maharashtra and looking at the persistent demand from various circles, we took it upon ourselves to do the job. While working for four long years, instead of looking at any time-limit we concentrated on perfection and to make the final copy free from a single error."


Interestingly, the Marathi Translation of the Holy Quran that will be released this Sunday is perhaps the only Quran translation of its kind that has the name of a Hindu, Ajay Sonar imprinted on it.


Ajay Sonar a computer DTP operator from Malegaon, who will be felicitated by the organizers during the International Quran Conference in Mumbai, helped Jamiat Ahle Hadees Maharashtra in composing and proof reading the entire Marathi script that runs over more than a thousand pages.
