Have so far really enjoyed reading this translation - everything is categorised with detailed background notes for various verses.

Strongly recommended for anyone who wants to learn and understand Islam - and because it's written in modern day English it's readable/understandable by people of all ages.

This translation is the best I have come across as it uses todays English. It is so easy to understand and does not have any classical English (ie Shakespearian) within any part as other versions do.

Excellent footnote with one touch (for reason behind verse/revelation) and also contains Hadith referencing for most footnotes and also has a very detailed introduction into the religion.

Ideal for the curious unbeliever of the religion or the religiously inclined English speaking Muslim.

If you wanna read what millions globally have memorised for over 14 Centuries and see what the verses mean then this is the best version of the translation in the English language out there!

Bought this book after reading many positive reviews about it. However i didnt like the style it was written in, it seems babyish somehow and as a result loses the beauty of the original. No translation is perfect and I know its trying to be in "todays english" but i think there are better ways of doing it eg oxford's abdel haleem The Qur'an (Oxford World's Classics) and even wahiduddin khan(his mistake being saying that Jesus pbuh had his soul taken up which implies he died which is against islamic belief. but for the most part a decent translation)Quran (White Cover). I especially disliked the last footnotes in surah rahman giving a rather vulgar interpretation of heavenly companions, i felt it overstepped the mark by stating his opinion as if it was factual. this was what made me return the book. My advice to anyone wanting to read a translation of the Quran, check it out against other interpretations [...], yusuf ali still my fave.

It's good. I took a 'look inside' and that helped. My preferred translation is by M. Abdel Haleem, the best in my opinion, but there isn't a large print edition of that, so this is a good alternative.

Not fully read, I just like to read all different religion books as I feel it's good to know and understand what others beliefs may be.

Interesting read !!!!

I've been reading this English-language version of the meaning of the Qur'an during Ramadan. It's a lively translation, with good, but not excessive, use of colloquialisms - I particularly like it when Emerick uses expressions such as "No way!" to indicate Allah's reproofs and prohibitions. Emerick avoids the archaicisms of some other translations, such as Pickthall and Yusuf Ali (who try to make the Qur'an sound like the King James Version of the Bible). The translation comes with an informative introduction and extensive notes, often explaining the circumstances in which particular verses were revealed or providing additional background information. A useful feature is that chapters are broken up into short passages with the use of informative sub-headings. As with any translator, Emerick has had to make choices in expressing particular arabic words or expressions in English, and he tends to select more "liberal" interpretations in most cases. My favourite translations are still Abdel Haleem for OUP and Khalidi for Penguin, but this version would certainly be a good one to give to young non-Muslims wishing to explore the Qur'an.
