'Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful one who taught by the pen, who taught man what he did not know.'

One of the most influential books in the history of literature, recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, the Qur'an is the supreme authority and living source of all Islamic teaching, the sacred text that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics, and laws of Islam. Yet despite the
growing interest in Islamic teachings and culture, there has never been a truly satisfactory English translation of the 
Qur'an, until now.
This superb new translation of the 
Qur'an is written in contemporary language that remains faithful to the meaning and spirit of the original, making the text crystal clear while retaining all of this great work's eloquence. The translation is accurate and completely free from the archaisms,
incoherence, and alien structures that mar existing translations. Thus, for the first time, English-speaking readers will have a text of the 
Qur'an which is easy to use and comprehensible. Furthermore, Haleem includes notes that explain geographical, historical, and personal allusions as well as an
index in which Qur'anic material is arranged into topics for easy reference. His introduction traces the history of the Qur'an, examines its structure and stylistic features, and considers issues related to militancy, intolerance, and the subjection of women.
Clearly written and filled with helpful information and guidance, this brilliant translation of the 
Qur'an is the best available introduction to the faith of Moslems around the world.
