I have attempted to read this many times over the years. I am going to buy another translation. I purchased this in the late '80's and maybe there is a "clearer" version now. However, as in every holy book, there are lots of golden nuggets of wisdom to find. My rating reflects only the importance of this book in one's spirituality walk IMHO. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0940368188, Mass Market Paperback)

An English-only translation of the Qur'an, this is a compilation of the Muslim faith's Final Revelation from God to mankind through the last Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon Him. The Qur'an has a wealth of information--both worldly wisdom and intellectual concepts--providing a code of life for humankind generally and Muslims in particular. Indeed, the Qur'an's miracle lies in its ability to offer something to non-believers and everything to believers. This edition is fully indexed.
