One of the most influential books in the history of literature,
recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, the
Qur'an is the supreme authority and living source of all Islamic
teaching, the sacred text that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics,
and laws of Islam. Yet despite the growing interest in Islamic
teachings and culture, there has never been a truly satisfactory
English translation of the Qur'an, until now.
This superb new translation of the Qur'an is written in
contemporary language that remains faithful to the meaning and
spirit of the original, making the text crystal clear while
retaining all of this great work's eloquence. The translation is
accurate and completely free from the archaisms, incoherence, and
alien structures that mar existing translations. Thus, for the
first time, English-speaking readers will have a text of the Qur'an
which is easy to use and comprehensible. Furthermore, Haleem
includes notes that explain geographical, historical, and personal
allusions as well as an index in which Qur'anic material is
arranged into topics for easy reference. His introduction traces
the history of the Qur'an, examines its structure and stylistic
features, and considers issues related to militancy, intolerance,
and the subjection of women.
Clearly written and filled with helpful information and guidance,
this brilliant translation of the Qur'an is the best available
introduction to the faith of Moslems around the world.
