A good Quran Dictionary is the need of the hour as lot of people is interested in learning the Holy Quran. Since Quran's literary beauty is almost totally lost in all translations, studying the Quran in Arabic will help in appreciating its true beauty. If we count the actual number of root words in Quran it comes around 1873 words. I believe that any person interested in learning Quran's word meaning can do it in around 2 years since Quran is really made very simple. I think this book will help the students of the Holy Quran in learning Quran's word meaning.

I have just received this book I ordered from the Amazon. While I value this book so high for my learning of words from the Al Quran, I would like to make a few remarks for the future publication.
The book, hard cover, 166pp, by John Penrice, first published in London in 1873 (i.e., 127 years ago) but was not mentioned the name of the original publisher. The book then Republished as a New Edition in 1971, Reprinted in 1976, and Newly Revised in 1988 (the copy that I have) by the Library of Islam, Des Plaine, IL (USA). While I am happy to have this book but I am disappointed by the way this book republished and "new revised" three times after 123 years. The new revisers didn't bother to include any additional information about what was being revised and to guide the readers or end users. It only contains a preface by the original author 123 years ago.
For the next publication they should include a Guide and Reference of at least a list how the abbreviations should be understood or at least a list of abbreviations used throughout the book, such as aor. i. and o; aor a and i; etc. A glimps of reference to the grammar such as a short list of at least Form I, II, .... X at least should be included in the next publication.
The pages are also being cut very close to the edge of the pages which might endanger of losing some words toward the edge. This should also be fixed.
Sincerely,
Sjamsir Sjarif Santa Cruz, CA, USA June 28, 2000 hambo@zzyx.ucsc.edu
