    An Abridged Koran by CSPI (EncompassedRunner)
    EncompassedRunner: Approaching the Koran without any background familiarity with Islam, particularly the traditions of Muhammad or Islamic history can result in the reader feeling confused, as the Koran is not arranged chronologically or topically, and for the most part there is not enough context in the Koran to give meaning to vague verses or to clarify seeming contradictions.

Interesting to read right now given the political climate. Although there are a few "kill the infidels" type passages, overall the tone is one of giving oneself up to the one and only God, although the consequences of not doing so will result in hellfire and brimstone, etc. Several passages in practical day to day living as well -- multiple wives (only if they can be treated equally - yeah, right), how to divide property after death, when and how divorce is allowed, etc. Overall, though, it does not condone anything remotely like 9/11. Actually the Qur'an calls for a fiery and miserable afterlife for Osama and his kind. ( )

In Arabic. A small metal loop is sewn to the back cover so the book may be worn around as a locket. This copy is in mint condition and is still in it's original cardboard, boxed container.
