Translation of the Qur'an has been a challenging task from its very inception. The challenge originates in the peculiar linguistic and stylistic features of Qur'anic language which requires contextual and extra-contextual considerations. Hence efforts to translate Qur'an pose numerous theological, linguistic & legal questions and problems that need to be carefully studied & analyzed keeping in view the Qur'anic sciences and various translation theories & approaches such as Philological, Communicative, Socio-semiotic & Hermeneutics. The region of the sub-continent has distinctive place in terms of very early attempts & multiplicity of languages to which the text of Qur'an is translated.
