The Koran is not only one of the most influential books of prophetic literature but also a literary masterpiece in it’s own right. Universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as revealed to Mohammed by the Angel Gabriel nearly 1,400 years ago, the Koran still provides the rules of conduct fundamental to the Arab way of life.
Depends on what you are looking for
The reader is very articulate and easily understood, mashallah. This is not the Qu'ran, but a mere translation and interpretation. I find it helpful, however, when I just want to hear the Qu'ran without the muss and fuss of Arabic. I'm still learning, and sometimes just need English. I would definitely advise one to purchase the actual Qu'ran, as nothing in this world is more beautiful than the Qu'ran spoken as it was revealed, mashallah. Humduillah.
Although an English translation this is still a beautiful interpretation of the actual Quran. I agree with the one review which stated nothing is a beautiful as the Quran read as it was originally dictated in it's original Arabic but for those of us new to the true religion who are not fluent in Arabic and embrace English as our primary language this is helpful in our journey to follow the straight path in our quest to submit to the word of the one true GOD... May Peace Be Upon You..
Quran - guidance for mankind
The Quran provides rules of conduct to the Muslim way of life not just Arab Muslims. The last statement needs correction to that effect.
