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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am, as my title says, not a Muslim. Actually, I am a Wiccan. But I find in the Qur'an, more so than in any other holy script, a call for us to care for ourselves and others equally.
Many believe that the Qur'an is the source of the hatred that some Muslims have for the West. I do not feel this is true. The text calls, not for the (lesser) ... (holy war) on the Western world, as it is currently being practiced by some misguided folks, but to cleanse one's own heart of hatred and impurity first. ...
Every passage I have read calls for love. Love of Allah, and love of your fellow man. How can people turn such a loving book into their (proclaimed) guidebook for hatred? There are things I will never understand. That, perhaps, is first amongst them.
Again I say, I am not a Muslim; I am a Witch. But nonetheless, I think, were the Qur'an practiced as the law of our land, this would be a great nation....

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After the constant ruckus with terrorist I decided to read the Qur'an for the simple reason that Sun Tzu taught in his Art of War writings...that we should "know our enemy," So I jumped into Abdullah Yusuf Ali's translation of the Qur'an...
I realized after reading other introductory books that it is likely that Islam would not consider any English translation of the Qur'an a true indication of its original meaning. But it is close and the best we mere mortals can do. After reading this version of the Qur'an, it is clear that the whole world is to come under the purview of God or Allah! In Islamic terminology God is simply called Allah.

I also believe that the Qur'an actually charges Muslims to fight against any and all who pervert their religion from within, such as Osama Bin Laden and the terrorist of 9-11. Muslims who believe otherwise have been misdirected and mislead due to ignorance, illiteracy and oppressive leadership.
Yes, the Qur'an teaches not to trust the West but it also condemns without question the terrorist activities of Osama bin Laden. As Bernard Lewis says, "there is no precedent or authority in Islam" for 9-11.
I have been fascinated by the similarities in all religions and I am also equally distressed at the conflicts that develop between various sects, denominations and major beliefs systems in the world. They are all basically saying the same thing. It just gets said in different ways and from a slightly different perspective. Then some jerk says, "my way is the only way and all hell breaks loose."
Even though they are all trying to achieve the same thing, "oneness with, mercy from...and communion with God." No matter what a religion calls its Deity, the bottom line is that they are all referring to God.
