Ever since 1981 I am regularly reading this Interpretation of Koran. It's a job well done by (Late) Arthur J Arberry. Those who are looking forward to pure words of God may try this Interpretation to have and develop the right feel and message that God expressed through His prophet. The efforts made by Mr. A J Arberry shall only be rewarded by God, Himslef. Thank you for keeping 'The Koran Interpreted' by 'Arthur J Arberry' in print.

Although the Qu'ran not the only key to an understanding of Islam, it is an essential part. In this translation Arberry has taken the Quran and used current English, which makes it far easier to read than many others, even, dare I say, the excellent Yusuf Ali text. I strongly recommend this edition for non-theists and non-Muslims since it not only reads well, but in this case, not having a commentary is a virtue - the Quran is left to speak for itself. For those wanting to read through the Quran cover-to-cover, Arberry's volume will get you off to a quick start. Another very good, perhaps even better English translation is Ahmed Ali's "Al Qu'ran: A Contemporary Translation (ISBN: 0691074992). But for those seeking a fuller understanding of this great text with full commentary and notes, see Ali's classic translation (ISBN: 0915957760).
