Works on the second edition of the translation is underway

Zohurul Hoque is
the only person who has translated the Holy Qur'an into
three languages: Assamese, Bangla and English. Dr. Hoque's
approach to the Holy Qur'an is immensely refreshing, endowed
with rational, scholastic, scientific and proper Islamic
perspective within the scope of broad Sunni understanding,
without any bias to any particular school of thought.
