Abstract

The aim of this article is to shed light on the main features of MuÍammad ×amidullah’s writings in French from 1935 to 1994, as well as some new aspects of his scientific life in Paris where he lived from 1948 to 1996, with particular regard to his correspondence, ignored to this day, with the French Orientalist Henri Massignon. For medical reasons, his niece had to repatriate him to the United States where he died in 2002 at the age of 95 years. For us, Muslims of France, the most prominent work of MuÍammad ×amidullah is the translation of the Holy Qur’Én into French reissued twelve times. He is the first Muslim to translate the Holy Qur’Én into French. The other monumental work of this uncommon scholar is the biography of the Prophet (œ) reissued five times and translated into several languages.
