What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"An eloquent and eminently readable translation . . . much closer to the way the first Muslims experienced the Qur'an."
-Reza Aslan, author of No god but God

" While being faithful to the original, [Khalidi] succeeds in conveying linguistic shifts, from narrative to mnemonic, sermons to parables. And there is an innovative component: it is the first translation that tries to capture both the rhythms and the structure of the Qur'an. . . . This translation manages to give a glimpse of the grandeur of the original. . . . A magnificent achievement."
-Ziauddin Sardar, The Guardian (London)

"What sets Khalidi apart from his predecessors is his sensitivity to the sounds and many layers of meaning of the original as well as his skill in conveying them to an anglophone audience...Khalidi's introduction and bibliographic note are marvelously succinct, explaining the textual nature and structure of the Qur'an, its place in Muslim life, and providing a very useful summary of recent research and further reading...a landmark in the history of English translations of the Qur'an."
Ziad Elmarsafy, Times Literary Supplement

    beware!!!!

    bought it for my 11y son. this is a word by word translation!! most meanings are LOST!! The Quran should not be translated; Its meanings should be translated. Even the names of the Sura's were translated wrong, as they were translated word-by-words instead of translated what each name meant! Quran came in Arabic and changing even a letter in it can make a huge difference in the intended meaning, thus any translation should be OF THE MEANINGS AND NOT OF THE WORDS. For those of you who do not know about the essences of the Muslim beliefs, there should not be a translation of the Quran; because many of the meanings and teachings will be lost in this case. If anyone wishes to translate, they should comprehend what is meant by each verse and then write its meaning in their own words. this is what I know, please correct me if you are knowledgeable in aqeda and think that I misspoke about this issue. Thanks
