    Description

    A new English translation of the Quran.

    Summary Of The Book

    The Quran is one of the defining books of humanity, a sacred text whose dictates are followed by a large percentage of people in the world today.

    Islam is one of the Abrahamic religions, sharing a common heritage with Judaism and Christianity. In recent years, the interest in understanding the fundamental teachings of this religion has increased, as conflicts between the Muslim and Western cultures have escalated.

    This book, The Qur'an, in English, is an excellent translation by a highly respected scholar of Islamic studies educated at Cambridge. This book is written keeping in mind a readership that is unfamiliar with the traditions and beliefs of the Muslim faith.

    The book is a clear translation, and yet retains the style and eloquence of the original work. It has been neatly arranged so that the text flows smoothly in a cohesive narrative. This makes it easy for an English-speaking readership to follow easily.

    The author has provided context information and starts with an overview of the Quran’s history He has also included extensive notes that explain the geographical, personal and historical references in the work.

    The book examines the structure and style of the original work and conveys its significance as a fine piece of literature to the readers. It explains the religious and historical context and clarifies the text in places where it might be confusing to the uninitiated reader.

    The Qur'an gives the reader the historical context of the text, and it conveys the fundamental religious principles and guidelines that Muslims everywhere follow. The book also examines controversial issues often associated with the work, like militancy and the position of women.

    The Qur'an is a fine and clear piece of literary translation, that conveys the essential message of the religion in a way that everyone can understand. The book has an index that neatly arranges the Quran into well defined topics for easy reference.

    Best translation of our times....

    I bought this Quran translation book through filpkart 2 days back,
    Abdel Haleem had done a good job in translating the Quran in english by not using obscure languages and easy to understand refernces. But the only thing is it doesnt contain the original Quran text in Arabic as most translation does.

    This book also introduction about Prop Muhamed(PBUH), as well as the Quran, many historic facts have been given.

    Beautifully and concisely written .
    Had a nice time reading it .
    Its really a tough work to translate from arabic to english language ,
    but the translator did a wonderful job .
    Mindfulness and goodness are the keys to a bright spiritual life .
    Its worth paying the price for such a treatise .
    The explanations at the bottom will really help us to understand it better .
    Its never too late to grab a copy .

    Excellent Translation and Quality

    The quality of translation is too good even for the native English speakers who are looking out for the best translation. The best part is that it has got an introduction section which will help the non-muslims too to have a proper foundation of what is Quran all about and how it was revelaed.

    An admirable achievement

    Many great scholars in the past have attempted the extraordinarily difficult task of translating and reaching as far as possible to the essence and substance of the Qur'an that has shaped Arabic literature over a millennium and continues to influence Muslim lives.

    MAS Abdel Haleem's new English translation of the Qur'an from the Arabic blends fine religious and linguistic scholarship with literary elegance. It is indeed an admirable academic and spiritual achievement for its translator whose...

    The best translation around

    This version was among the best sellers in religion section around the world, and it has many reasons for it.
    The best part about it that it begins with an assumption that we're starting with a clean slate and the reader has to be given the context, ease of language, historical information along with the translation.
    In the beginning itself it gives out a detailed explanation of those times, including a map etc, so that when you're reading through, you get better idea and understanding.

    Great!!

    This particular English translation of The Quran by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem is easy to understand and the notes are really helpful.
    I had other translations by translators like Yusuf Ali, Moshin Khan, Shakir, etc.
    But this one is particularly helpful.
    Obviously this cant to compared to the original text, as no translator can even come close to the divine authorship of The Quran. But for non Arabic speaking people, this is really a great gift.

    The overall delivery experience with Flipkart was gre...
