About the Author :

Marmaduke Pickthall is best remembered as the first Englishman who was a Muslim to translate the Qur'an into English. He was also a prolific writer on the issues that concerned Muslims during his lifetime-- Turkey, India, Islam-as well as a novelist and short story writer. Born into a devout Christian family in England, and whose father was a clergyman, Pickthall converted to Islam, and enamoured of the Islamic world by living and working in India. Pickthall died on May 19, 1936, and is buried at Working, England.
