'Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful one who taught by the pen,
who taught man what he did not know.' The Qur'an, believed by
Muslims to be the word of God, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad
1400 years ago. It is the supreme authority in Islam and the living
source of all Islamic teaching; it is a sacred text and a book of
guidance, that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics, and laws of the
Islamic religion. It has been one of the most influential books in
the history of literature. Recognized as the greatest literary
masterpiece in Arabic, it has nevertheless remained difficult to
understand in its English translations. This new translation is
written in a contemporary idiom that remains faithful to the
original, making it easy to read while retaining its powers of
eloquence. Archaisms and cryptic language are avoided, and the
Arabic meaning preserved by respecting the context of the
discourse. The message of the Qur'an was directly addressed to all
people regardless of class, gender, or age, and this translation is
equally accessible to everyone. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100
years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range
of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume
reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most
accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including
expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to
clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and
