Book Description

ILLUSTRATED AND ANNOTATED:

* Contains Full Color Reproductions of Arabic Manuscripts
* Contains additional materials providing historical context


OVERVIEW OF THE QUR'AN:

The Qur’an (literally “the recitation” also sometimes transliterated as Quran, Kuran, Koran, Qur’ān, Coran or al-Qur’ān), ) is the fundamental religious text of Islam. Widely regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language, the Qur’an serves as the verbal divine guidance and moral direction for mankind for hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world.

The text of the Qur’an consists of 114 chapters of varying lengths, each known as a sura. Chapters are classed as Meccan or Medinan, depending on when (before or after Hijra) the verses were revealed. Chapter titles are derived from a name or quality discussed in the text, or from the first letters or words of the sura. Muslims believe that Muhammad, on God's command, gave the chapters their names.


THE KINDLE QUR'AN: THE DEFINITIVE EDITION

The Kindle Qur'an: Definitive Edition contains the complete and unabridged English version of the Qur'an. It contains special Amazon Kindle enabled features such as interactive table of contents, DirectLink(tm) Technology, text-to-speech capabilities which enable audiobook features, as well as words that can be looked up on the Kindle supplied built in dictionary.


REVIEWS:

"The outstanding Qur'an for the Amazon Kindle ... likely to be the reference volume for decades to come."

"Five ***** stars ... truly excellent"

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best translation November 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This work while one of the better translations available on the Kindle is definitely not the "best translation" as many reviewers have commented, It also does NOT have full color reproductions of all the arabic text as the description and title mislead us to believe, neither is it easy to navigate since it has not been formatted properly for the Kindle and lacks a table of contents. The translation itself is based on Yusuf Ali's work which although mostly accurate has been criticised for its many errors and misinterpretations as well as its difficult to understand language and references. Strangely the publishers of this work have ommitted all the footnotes included in the original translation. If you're looking for the "best" translation I recommend Quran Made Easy instead(Quran Made Easy: Complete English Translation with Inline Commentary), it has been carefully formatted for the Kindle, uses contemporary english, is easier to understand and is devoid of the errors found in both the translation and formatting in this work, commentary is also included within the translated text which adds to the depth and understanding of the verses.

I don't read Arabic, but wanted to learn about Islam so I was given the print copy by a Muslim friend and then purchased this Kindle edition. Both editions are identical. It contains all of the text in English but be warned that because it's a translation some of the meaning is lost. There are passages where it is clear that Yusuf Ali had a hard time knowing exactly how to phrase things. One complaint I do have is that there is little in the way of additional information, so you will need to find another guide to help you along.

If you want a good introduction to the Qu'ran I recommend it highly, but make sure you check other sources also.

Hello everyone,
Please beware that as the title says it is the definitive english edition and just that. I got mislead by the subtext that says complete and unabridged with full color reproductions! excepte for one page of sura al-fatiha and another for few lines of Iqra bisme I could not find any reproductions or other additions (unless I dont know where to look). The translation is that of Yusuf Ali

I am still looking for something good like the web versions that show the translation and original with option to hide either. (but I guess that's why we need the ipad2)

best regards

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor formatting. September 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Qu'ran would be far better treated by an e-book edition that took better advantage of more of the features available on the kindle, and I would definitely prefer a version that has the English and Arabic together, somehow. Additionally, the copy-editing wasn't done very well, there are numerous typographical errors that are not in my print copy of the Yusuf Ali translation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Definitive Edition March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Different schools within Islam would prefer one translation over the other. This translation by Yusuf Ali is at the top of older Sunni Muslim translations, and still quite popular now. Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthal's translation is another older favorite. However, those who prefer the Saudi scholars would use Dr. M. M Khan's translation. The Ahmadiyya Sect would prefer the translation by Maulana Muhammad Ali. While there is no definitive 12er Shia Muslim translation, the one by S V Mir Ahmed Ali with notes by Ayatullah Agha Pooya Yazdi is well liked, while the translation by 'Ali Quli Qara'i is the most readable translation. I found the description "most definitive" to be quite misleading. But Yusuf Ali's translation is a good one.

2.0 out of 5 stars typos? January 10, 2014
By knitica
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will admit right away that I am no Qur'an scholar, that's why I bought this one to finally read it for myself. The content is fine, but there seem to be endless typos and errors throughout, like quotes and parenthesis that begin but never close. The translation feels a little awkward to me also. This has made it very difficult to follow.

I would suggest downloading a different version of the Qur'an that was better printed and translated. I will probably do the same.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'd rather read a dictionary January 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read it to find out if it has any of the stuff they talk about on new shows, like virgins for people who kill Christians. It doesn't. Finding that out was the most boring experience of my life.
