A landmark new translation of the sacred text of Islam- in an elegant deluxe edition

Literally "the recitation," The Qur'an is considered within the Muslim faith to be the infallible word of God. Tarif Khalidi, the foremost scholar of Islamic history and faith, provides a fresh English translation that captures the startling, exquisite poetry of one of the world's most beloved religious texts. Retaining the structure and rhythms of the original Arabic, Khalidi enlivens the ancient teachings and prophetic narratives central to the Muslim faith and solidifies The Qur'an as a work of spiritual authority and breathtaking beauty.

    For what I payed for the Quran, I found the translation to be good. I also found the binding to be very cheaply made, almose like a binding you would find in a book club volume. I hope it holds together when I go to study it..K. Davis

    From Amazon

    I picked this up because I always try new translations when they come out. This is an accessible translation of the Qur'an, written in elegant but not pedantic English, extremely true to the Arabic without losing the poetic impact. The layout, size and format are so conducive to absorption and reading, that I stood some time in the bookstore reading before I purchased. Among modern English translations, I think this will become a great contender.
