Review

"The Sharif is the easiest Arabic Bible to understand. When you read it, the language just flows. You enjoy the Word. You feel like it is a letter from your heavenly Father directed to you personally, one that you can share easily with others." --Om Ghattas

"This new translation is understandable and enjoyable by the majority of the Arab speaking peoples and is a breath of fresh air. The Sharif Bible is a long awaited answer to prayer…My wife and I love this translation. We give it away, we read from it, I quote from it from the pulpit. As far as I am concerned it is the best Arabic version. It is so clear that we are often amazed. Often we have to go to other languages. But when we check the Sharif it is all there in plain Arabic." --Pastor Karim

One Sharif Bible was given to a very special Leaders wife in the Middle East. She received it politely and opened it up to look inside. "I can read this" she exclaimed! This is a response I often hear about this exciting modern Arabic translation of the Bible.Arabic Bible, Sharif Translation (Arabic Edition)

While I cannot yet read Arabic fluently, this Arabic translation of the Holy Bible looks beautiful. I hope I might sometime soon be able to read this book, and I hope and trust that the translation is just as beautiful as the book's appearance and layout.
Each page of the Sharif Translation has a simple yet ornate border, the text includes the "short vowel" symbols, and headings and cross-references are placed outside of the border that surrounds the Holy Scriptures---all of these elements are reminiscent of the traditional format of the Arabic Qur'an. Somewhat surprisingly, the Western/English version of the Arabic numeral system is used for much of the numbering system in this version(chapters and verses;1,2,3...).

This is an excellent translation of the Scriptures from Hebrew and Greek in to MSA Arabic. The translation is both faithful to the original text and provides a pleasant read in Arabic.

I can't read Arabic but this translation was recommended to me by an American scholar who reads & speaks Arabic fluently and understands Arab culture quite well. I trust his judgment.

I asked a Muslim scholar -- a teacher of Imams -- to look at the Sharif Bible. He opened to the introduction, read quietly then turned to me and said, "This is the best explanation of the Injil, the Gospel, that I have ever seen. The Arabic is pure, clear and speaks directly to my heart." As a second language Arabic speaker, I find the Sharif version the easiest Arabic Bible to read. It's style, format, use of language familiar to Arabs around the world and it's unwavering adherence to Biblical truth makes this a wonderful gift and eminently useful translation of God's message.

This is a beautiful read. It flows much more naturally than some other translations, and the words come to life. It would be nice if it had the deuterocanonical books, though.
