4.1. Translation of the Qur’ān-In Print

No quotation marks are used when quoting an original Qur’ānic verse. As for its Qur’ānic references, it should be italicized and in double quotes. Use the definite (al) articles at the start of chapter names and the long openers (ā) in them. If translation of a verse is taken from Qur’ānic references, its translator, publisher and printing information should be indicated in its first reference.


اِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذ۪ينَ اِذَا ذُكِرَ اللّٰهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَاِذَا تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ اٰيَاتُهُ زَادَتْهُمْ ا۪يمَاناً وَعَلٰى رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَۚ

“The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord they rely.”
