This is volume one of ten volumes. Our mission is to gather in one place, for the English-speaking public, all relevant information needed to make the Qur'an more understandable and easier to study. This book tries to do this by providing the following: 1. The Arabic Text for those who are able to read Arabic 2. Transliteration of the Arabic text for those who are unable to read the Arabic script. This will give them a sample of the sound of the Qur'an, which they could not otherwise comprehend from reading the English meaning. 3. The meaning of the qur'an (translated by Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali, Ph.D. and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan) 4. Background introductions by two famous Islamic scholars, Maududi and Ibn Kathir 5. Explanation (abridged Tafsir) by Ibn Kathir (translated by Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarakpuri) We hope that by doing this an ordinary English-speaker will be able to pick up a copy of this book and study and comprehend The Glorious Qur'an in a way that is acceptable to the understanding of the Rightly-guided Muslim Ummah (Community).… (more)

    An Abridged Koran by Bill Warner (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. CSPI's "An Abridged Koran" is helpful to read not instead of the Koran, but as a prelude to reading the full-length Koran and/or alongside the Koran, because it takes out redundant passages, orders the passages chronologically, and inserts from other Islamic texts (Hadith and Sira) context between the Koran verses, so that it all makes sense.… (more)

I like the notes explaining important translation details and expanding on the backgound of many verses in my edition. The appendixes with additional information about topics as the Abbreviated Letters as great too. ( )

Book of wonders .. Cannot describe it. ( )

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. ( )

Everyone should read this at least once. If you don't like it fine, but no one can deny that it is a beautiful piece of writing. Whether you agree with what it says or not. ( )
