Book Description

The Quran, a book which brings glad tidings to mankind along with divine admonition, stresses the importance of man’s discovery of truth on both spiritual and intellectual planes.

Every book has its objective and the objective of the Quran is to make man aware of the Creation plan of God. That is, to tell man why God created this world; what the purpose is of settling man on earth; what is required from man in his pre-death life span, and what he is going to confront after death. The purpose of the Quran is to make man aware of this reality, thus serving to guide man on his entire journey through life into the after-life.
The main themes of the Quran are enlightenment, closeness to God, peace and spirituality. The Quran uses several terms, tawassum, tadabbur, and tafakkur, which indicate the learning of lessons through reflection, thinking and contemplation on the signs of God scattered across the world. The present translation of the Quran and its explanatory notes are written keeping in mind these very themes.

I havent finished reading all the chapters (Suras) of the Quran yet, but this particular copy has an excellent appendix section, featuring an introduction into Islam and which also explains the history of the Quran and various aspect of the religion. It also contains various references to other religious scriptures (including the Bible) and as someone who was not raised as a Muslim I am finding it a very insightful read overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Translation 16 July 2014

I have many translations of the Holy Quran and I have found this version to be more accurate. There are many translations where the writers opinion or views is clear to be seen. This version does not attempt to use the translations to put their views. It is a very honest and clear translation in the old English style to match the old Arabic style of Quran. It is a shame that it is not available in Kindle and only in hard back.
