Reviews of Translation and Commentary by Maulana Muhammad Ali:

There is no other translation or commentary of the Holy Quran in the English Language to compete with Maulvi Muhammad Ali's Masterpiece
- Al-Haj Hafiz Ghulam Sarwar (Translator of the Holy Quran)
To deny the excellence of Maulvi Muhammad Ali's translation, the influence for good it has exercised and its proselytizing utility would be to deny the existence of the light of the sun.
- Maulana Abdul Majid Daryabadi (Leather of Orthodox Muslim Opinion in India)
... has all the merits of what is desired in a translation
- The Anjuman Himayat-e-Islam, Lahore, Pakistan
... an austerely faithful translation in English ... based on a close study of commentaries of the Quran - the work of my learned name - sake Maulvi Muhammad Ali of Lahore ... The translation and the notes ... all demonstrate the labour of love and devoted zeal
- Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar of The Comrade
It is certainly a work of which any scholar might legitimately be proud
- The Quest, London
