    Book details


This English translation of the Qur'an is a compilation of the Muslim faith's Final Revelation from God to mankind through the last Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon Him. 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. This edition is fully indexed.

Review Text

  • By Violet Crumble on 14 January 2010

    Based on reading reviews on Amazon, I came to a conclusion that if one intended to acquire a translation of the Holy Qur'an, one of the highly commended translations around (for clarity and integrity) was by Abdullah Yusuf Ali published by Tahrike Tarsile Qur'an.To my delight, I stumbled on this item on Amazon and was convinced that since this was a pre 9/11 edition - 10th Edition (1 June 1995) - this edition was not likely to be heavily modernized/revised to appeal to current climate conditioning. So I duly ordered a copy...To my surprise, I discovered that this in fact was not the 10th edition but the 24th US Edition 2008. To make things worse, I discovered in the introduction that apparently, the 1995 edition itself was heavily modernized to make the language as closely in tune with the 21st Century.After reading the first page of translations, I did not feel as though the translations came anywhere close to the true meanings of the Surahs (from previous experience of reading translations in another language).I am fully aware that any translation of the Qur'an will always be lacking in something (as the act of translation would unfortunately lead to varying degrees of loss of meaning) but I felt that this translation was too heavily modernized.In all, I am disappointed.In retrospect, I do realise that as a Muslim, I should know better than to purchase a translation of the Holy Qur'an from Amazon. Lesson learned then.
