This paper seeks to highlight the phenomenon of pragmatic losses in the translation of the meanings of the Qur’an from a linguistic point of view. It focuses on pragmatics. Hence, it tackles loss of genre, texture, culture-specific terms, word order, syntactic conflict, ellipsis, gender and tense. This is a link between pragmatics and translation.
