N. J. Dawood s masterful translation of "The Koran "in a fully revised edition
The Koran is universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible word of God as first revealed to the prophet Muhammad by the angel Gabriel nearly fourteen hundred years ago. Its 114 chapters recount the narratives and rules of conduct central to Islamic belief, and together they form one of the world s most influential prophetic works and a literary masterpiece in its own right. This newly revised edition of N. J. Dawood s classic translation is also available in a larger edition with the original Arabic in parallel text.
