Over the course of centuries, Islam has undergone a process of sub-categorization into numerous denominations. As such, nearly all translators have belonged to one school of thought or another, allowing the influence of such denomination(s) to come across in their interpretation of specific words or verses, and how they choose to translate them.
The Message: A Translation of the Glorious Qur'an is an attempt to be free from the influences of sectarianism, and gives the reader a genuine and honest viewpoint of Monotheism's Holy Book by translating it the way it always deserved to be translated.
The Message: A Translation of the Glorious Qur'an is the result of a group effort by people who do not belong to any denomination, and for the first time in many centuries, are simply proud to call themselves 'Muslims' as God had named us centuries ago.
The Message: A Translation of the Glorious Qur'an is unique in the fact that it uses neither footnotes nor author comments, letting the text speak for itself and delivering to the reader as close a rendition of the pure message of the Qur'an as physically possible.

The Monotheist Group is a pen name used by the Free-Minds Organization which is an Islamic reform movement that began in 1997, dedicated to the promotion of God alone. The movement seeks the abandonment of all sectarian innovations through a return to the principles of the Qur'an. The Free-Minds Organization has attracted the attention of a number of think tanks (namely the Rand Corporation in its "Building Moderate Muslim Network" report) as well as some noted authors in the field of Islamic Reform. More details on the group can be found at the official Web sites: www.Free-Minds.Org and www.ProgressiveMuslims.Org.
