Qur'an by Ali Quli Qara'I

Book Description

Neither prose nor poetry but a unique, mesmerising fusion of both, the Qur'an stands as one of the worlds most important spiritual texts and is a source of law, instruction and comfort for about one and half billion people around the globe. It is, among the worlds religious scriptures, arguably the one that today commands the attention of those unfamiliar with its teachings. There are numerous English translations of the Quran available, yet few, if any of them, can claim a phrase-by-phrase translation, concurrent with the original text in Arabic. This edition, from the Islamic College for Advanced Studies (ICAS), does just this. In addition to being of invaluable benefit to readers who understand English only, this method also permits those with even a rudimentary grasp of Arabic to draw nearer to the Qurans inimitable style and lofty message, by following the Arabic text while being guided by the English. Expertly translated and prepared, this edition of the Quran also makes extensive use of classical commentaries from both Sunni and Shii sources for broader-based understanding.
