'God is the light of the heavens and the earth . . . God guides to His light whom He will.' 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 fourteen hundred years ago. Its 114 chapters, or surahs, recount the narratives central to Muslim belief, and together they form one of the world's most influential prophetic works and a literary masterpiece in its own right. But, above all, the Koran provides the rules of conduct that remain fundamental to the Muslim faith today- prayer, fasting, pilgrimage to Mecca and absolute faith in God. N. J. Dawood's masterly translation is the result of a lifelong study of the Koran's language and style, and has been assiduously revised over the years; it presents the English reader with a clear, fluent and authoritative rendering, while reflecting the flavour and rhythm of the original. It includes an introduction, a brief chronology and an exhaustive index. 'The only version, if you want to know in English what the Koran actually says . . . Across the language barrier, Dawood captures the thunder and poetry of the original.' The Times Over a million copies sold worldwide.Revised translation with an introduction and notes by N. J.

A newly revised edition of N. J. Dawood’this classic translation.
  PAFM | Jul 18, 2021 |
as a student of the Crusades, it seemed unwise to avoid reading the religious book of Islamic Civilization. This translation has had a long run, being first published in 1956 and still in print. The arrangement of the books is not traditional, nor strictly chronological, though generally so. The introduction bears close examination. ( )

I don't review sacred texts on the grounds that I find that both disrespectful and asking for a headache. The four-star rating is a reflection of the usefulness of the document as a tool to better understand both believers and history. Nothing here is intended as a statement of belief or non-belief of the faith in question. ( )

I have no ability to judge the quality of Dawood's translation, and my knowledge of Islam is pretty superficial, so it feels more than a little presumptuous to write a review of a text that billions of people venerate as sacred. Just a few observations from a novice: the Koran is not a narrative. it is a series of revelations to the prophet Muhammad from the Angel Gabriel arranged roughly from longest to shortest. I read it straight through, but I suspect that's not the best way to approach the text. I found the shorter sections near the end much easier to dig into, and wish I had had some other reading strategy. The Koran's central teachings are repeated many times: the importance of almsgiving, faith, and submission to the will of God. For people familiar with Christianity and Judaism, it also has many interesting alternate traditions about Mary, Jesus, Abraham, and Moses. Just as with other sacred texts I've read, I found parts of it dull, parts of it obscure, and parts of it beautiful and moving. ( )
