Introduction

It is every Muslim's duty to read the Koran and try to understand it, which can be a problematic task for those unacquainted with Arabic. The study and appreciation of Arabic literature likewise demands a thorough familiarity with the Koran; the majority of works by Muslim writers abound in allusions to its precepts and quotations from its pages. The sacred text's purity of style and elegance of diction make it the standard of Arabic. This classic guide to one of the world's most widely read books permits everyone, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, to understand the Koran-even those with no prior knowledge of Arabic. Geared toward beginners, it was written to answer the need for an American version of the Koran in contemporary English. Each word is listed under its verbal root, words without roots are grouped alphabetically, and numerous explanations of the text appear throughout to help beginners master the inevitable difficulties and to assist advanced readers in resolving problems.
