Containing the full Arabic text of the Qur’an, an accompanying English translation, and extensive commentary, this is a compilation of the Muslim faith’s Final Revelation from God to mankind through the last Prophet Muhammad. The Qur’an has a wealth of information–both worldly wisdom and intellectual concepts–providing a code of life for humankind generally and Muslims in particular. Indeed, the Qur’an’s miracle lies in its ability to offer something to non-believers and everything to believers. From the Publisher Accepted by Muslims as the miraculous utterance of the Almighty, the Qur’an (the Arabic spelling for the more commonly used Koran) contains all the divine revelations given to Muhammad by Allah, or God. The collection as it now exists was compiled by Muhammad’s followers after his death in 632. This handsome volume features the original Arabic side by side with its English translation — plus a wealth of information in the editor’s commentary that provides intellectual explanation, interpretation, and important background.
