The Holy Koran is the Word of God whose truth was revealed to Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel. It is divided into 114 Suras or chapters, and was traditionally transmitted by word of mouth.

Thanks

If anyone really is interested in reading the quraan then I would recommend reading the transliteration known as 'The Noble Quraan' as its woording is closer to the true meaning than a lot of the others which are more interpratations, than word for word translations.
[admin]#8
Wouldn't the word for word be more difficult to understand/read for someone coming to it for the first time? I'm thinking of bibles where literal translations are often quite clumsy compared to more readable ones (for example even King James compared to NIV).

I know people get pretty passionate about the various bible translations as being "the true translation" so I hope I haven't opened the same can of worms on the Qur'an front!

Nice post, thanks.

^No not at all. See in arabic there is only ONE text. Which ever one you pick up its exactly the same. However, obviously in english every translator will use slightly different words to translate. The most popular of these are the translations by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, M. H. Shakir, and M. Pickthall. Its quite an easy read if you just want to have an overall understanding.

As for transliteration mentioned above by al-athari. I'm not sure what he means because transliteration means how its phonetically prounced- you'll need to know arabic- which I doubt many forum members know.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks yasseral1. This one looks like it's translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali (if I squint really hard at the cover) so I guess it would be respectable version then :)

Are there new translations of Qur'an regularly or is it fairly set with those standard translations? I think the Abdullah Yusuf Ali one is from the 1930's according to Wikipedia.

from what I understand ( asked a m8 ) you can get phonetic translations, what it says translations (doesn't update so much as most conform) and interpretations which can be quite varied depending on which writers translations are used.

I have read one, can't remember who did the translations which turned out to be very informative. You can see yourself just how many misconceptions they are.

For example, In the news Women are portrayed as oppressed but from what I had read, women were supposed to be treated with the utmost request.

It is definately an essential read. While I won't be converting anytime soon, being a Catholic I can see alot of opinions/ideas that I'm familiar with.

fFor example, In the news Women are portrayed as oppressed but from what I had read, women were supposed to be treated with the utmost request.
And that's one point where religious doctrine and societal norms diverge. Take the case of law courts in Pakistan (personal experience, I have friends there) where it takes the testimony of 4 women to refute the testimony of a single man. Don't blame the religion...

My emphasis added.

^ That's the beauty- at least from the Muslim point of view. Because the Quran hasn't been changed even by one word since it was revealed 1400 years ago. so there's only a need for a new translation when the language that the Quran is being translated into evolves over time i.e. Shakespearean English vs Modern English. The english language hasn't changed that significantly in the last 70 years.

Hope that helps!

Hi thanks for the correction I was on my way out and in a rush when I typed and 'transliteration' was a mistake. The translation I recommended was supposed to be 'The noble quraan' by Dr Mohammed Al hilali

You'd be better off locking the thread this debate has been going on for 2k years so not going to stop now!
It's not about the debate, it's a deal on a book that some might want to buy and find it's a bargain at that :)
[admin]#21
As I noted above for religious debate or political debate please start the thread in Misc. This forum is for discussing the deal itself.
#22
We should have deals on bibles, baghavadgita's and talmuds too.

is a free MP3 Bible in Hindi, Tamil, Urdu andwait for it - English!

It says they have a Mandarin version - I bet that's juicy!

;-)

Hi guys, Thanks for the post.

I would like to make a point that the quran should not be bought nor sold. It is a gift from a person to another usually.

The only qurans which I believe should be sold are those with fancy and expensive leather covers.

However, should any one need a free copy, contact me and I'll see what I can do.

With regards to translation, people be assured that the translation qurans you purchase are infact examined and credited by the Islamic council in KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). They have to be approved.

As for changes, no it has not changed for 1400 years. Like Jesus p.b.u.h had the miracle of healing the blind and the crippled (with god's permission), in islam, the miracle is that the quran remains unchanged.

I hope this clarifies the above.

FT.
