The Qur'an (Oxford World's Classics)
The Qur'an (Oxford World's Classics)
by M. A. S. Abdel Haleem
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent translation, 10 May 2011
The task of translating the Quran is a very difficult one indeed however this one seems to be one of the best. Translated directly from arabic and into modern english Abdel Haleem has made the effort to research common errors made by other translators and uses the most appropriate language to portray the correct meaning. The introduction to the book includes a brief history of Islam and there is an introduction to each Surah provide a context within which it is very useful for new muslims and non muslims to understand the Quran. I would highly recommend this translation as an essential aid to understanding the Quran.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant buy, 10 May 2011
I bought this book alongside the author's translation of the Quran and it has been very helpful to gain a better understanding of the major themes in the Quran. The book highlights key themes in the Quran and explains their relevance. There is a lot of focus on the language styles used in the Quran which can be a bit hard to follow but don't let that put you off, particularly if you have no prior knowledge of Arabic, because this is an important feature of the Quran. Common translation or interpretation errors that have occurred in the past are explained and the author gives examples of these too. I found the book very interesting and would highly recommend it for those who wish to understand the Quran better.
