Publisher's Summary

"Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful one who taught by the pen, who taught man what he did not know."

The Qur'an, believed by Muslims to be the word of God, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad 1,400 years ago. It is the supreme authority in Islam and the living source of all Islamic teaching; it is a sacred text and a book of guidance that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics, and laws of the Islamic religion. It has been one of the most influential books in the history of literature. 

Recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, it has nevertheless remained difficult to understand in its English translations. This new translation is written in a contemporary idiom that remains faithful to the original, making it easy to listen to while retaining its powers of eloquence. Archaisms and cryptic language are avoided and the Arabic meaning preserved by respecting the context of the discourse. The message of the Qur'an was directly addressed to all people regardless of class, gender, or age, and this translation is equally accessible to everyone. 

About the series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Primitive Fables

easy to follow, plenty of repetition and assertions with no explanation other that "God does it" and "this is only for God to know"
the few things they do try to explain shows how little the author understood the world at time of writing

Easy to listen too.

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. From my very limited understanding of the Arabic language, I think the translation is perfect.

After listening to the Qur'an it has raised even more questions for me then I had before. However I'm happy that I took the time to listen to the interpretation of Qur'an

How To Give A Book Of Faith A Score ...

Frankly it has to be impossible to give any book of faith a score, so it gets five stars.
For the initiated, this isn't meant to be read/listened to as one continuous narrative. It is not. It is a collection of stories and commandments, edicts and ways of living.
For a non-Muslim it is interesting to hear how much peace and forgiveness are mentioned, as well as caring for the family, and fellow people.
Yes there is fire and brimstone, of course, however there is passion and compassion in here.
For those of the Christian faith. it would be interesting to read about Jesus' place in Islam, and how "God" is the One God, the God of the News, the Christians and more. This will probably resonate with people of faith more than they know.
The narration is very good, using a calm and warm tone.
It would have been nice to have a piece at the end from the author like we did at the start. It felt like and observation was needed.
Worth listening to.

Great translation

I really like how at the start of every chapter there is an intro explaining the origin and the structure of the chapter
