Format: Mass Market Paperback
This translation is considered the most authentic by Muslim scholars. It is the one that is supported by the government of Saudi Arabia and is most widely read by English-speaking Muslims. A translation of the Qur'an can never fully transmit the meaning or reflect the beauty of the original text. But the reality is that many people who seek to understand the message of the Qur'an will not be able to learn Arabic. It should be kept in mind that though the Arabic word may have multiple meanings, only one of those meanings gets translated to English (imagine what would happen to one of Shakespeare's puns if it was traslated to Arabic). But for English-speakers, this is the best option (though Mohammad Asad's translation is also very respected). The caveat is that to truly understand the Qur'an, it is important to read not only the text itself, but to understand it in context of the time it was revealed. Though Muslims consider the Qur'an to be timeless, many passages relate specifically to events occuring in the prophet's life or in the young Muslim community.

If one believes in existance of God (Allah: proper noun for God in Arabic), then surely he did not leave mankind (with so much capacity for intellectual or savage acts) without a manual for treading through this life. Therefore, readings in Divine revelation has to be approached with a sense of humility. Qur'an is that revelation (code for living) that is the last revelation to mankind since Taurah, Talmood, Psalms, and Bible. Qur'an is also a revelation that came in stages via Angel Gabriel to Prophet Muhammed to deal with the situations he faced with pagan Arabs of the time. It is an elliptic revelation, therefore, one has to read this translation in conjunction with another explanation, such as, The Message and Meanings of the Qur'an, by Khurram Murad, The Islamic Foundation, Leicester, UK. Nonetheless, this is a great transliteration that Westerners can relate to, as it makes references to other ideologies/philosophies.

The Qur'an brought me closer to the mystical nature of human kind, and Abdullah Yousef Ali did a wonderful job in shedding light on the mystic and poetic nature of Islam. Only those who are natural, who love this Earth and are also willing to believe in miracles will see the true nature of this book.
Qur'an comes from the Arabic word Iqra'=read(verb). Therefore, Qur'an=that which is read upon you. The texts in the Qur'an carry symbols and signs that fall upon believers everyday to guide them onto righteous and noble paths.
I was raised a muslim, so thankfully I didn't have to break through all the obsantites that the unbelievers spewed about Islam. I am a firm believer of the Day of Judgement, and a firm believer that Islam has unfolded the true histories of humanity's struggles on Earth from the creation of Adam and Eve up untill the last prophet Muhammed (PBUH). Unfortunately, the Bible's texts aren't accurate because they've been ill-treated after Jesus's ressurection, and they were also changed and handed down from one corrupt authority to the next.
This case isn't true for the Qura'an because the prophet recited the Qura'an once a year during the month of Ramadan with the Angel Gabriel in order to protect the verses from being distorted, and then he recited them from memory and muslims wrote it down to preserve the symbolic words of Allah. Don't be alarmed, there are thousands of muslim children today who know this book off by heart.
The Qura'an carries symbolic texts which reveal the true sacrifices and hardships that all the prophets went though to pass on God's message. Jesus is not the son of God he was only his prophet, endowed with the knowledge of healing and magic. God has his own singular nature and owns a kingdom.

This translation was recommended by a Muslim friend of mine. I'm Christian, but hoped to learn more about Islam by going to the source (or at least a good translation of the source, as I don't read Arabic). It was doubly helpful that it has a couple pages where it gives the Arabic vs Biblical names for the different prophets.

Shipping date was much longer at the check out as compare to link to choose the book, but it did arrive soon. It was written in old English. I have another version of Quran and it is easier to read and comprehend.
The book was in excellent condition.

Fascinating book that is profoundly influencing more than a billion people today into violent relationships with people outside their faith and within it. Its vague prose and awkward style nonetheless set the stage for intractable geopolitical conflict.
