English Abstract

The present study aims to examine the problematic cases of feminine expressions from Surat An-Nisa and their translation into English by John Medows Rodwell, Muhammad Al-Hilali and Khan, and Muhammad AlKuli.

The researcher selected Zawj, Ma Malakat Aymanukum, Muhsanat, Allaati Yatin Alfahisha, Amsikuhuna, Qanitat, and Hafizat Lilghayb as her sample to achieve the goals of the study.

Adopting a descriptive, comparative, and analytical method, the researcher analysed and compared the strategies used by the three translators.

Results revealed several problems in the translation of feminine expressions such as failure to render the intended meaning of the original words, lack of understanding of the original text.

The three translators used a variety of translation strategies such as literal translation, paraphrasing, expansion, and explication to convey the intended meaning.
