    Great English

    This book has easy-flowing English. It does not sound like a stilted translation. This book is great for native English speakers and is easy to read and understand. This is the book I used when converting to Islam. (It only has English inside.)

    My favourite book!

    I'm a revert to Islam. I find Shakir's translation the best because he does it from a Shia Muslim point of view. :)

    I'm a muslim.

    Islam is the most beautiful religion in the world! If you never knew anything about Islam then it's time you've learned about the true stories of the prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). This is a great book to know the people behind this sacred religion.

    A Passionate Read

    This is a passionate telling of the revelations of the prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him. Contains laws similar to the Torah, and parables and descriptions of the afterlife similar to the New Testament. A must read for anyone considering conversion to Islam, or simply wanting to learn more about its teachings.
