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

This is a work lifted mostly from the old testament. It makes references to may old testament figures, plus Jesus, but gives him only as a sign of the coming, nothing more. There is no story timeline, only fractured references to old testament stories with no real storytelling.
I read this to understand why the Islamic world is experiencing so much aggression, and wondering if there was a mandate in the Quran to make war upon others. I found only one oblique mandate in Surah 61.4, saying that "Truly Allah loves those who fight in his cause in battle array." No other calls to action in the entire work.
There is plenty of sermonizing (most of the book,) which I found agonizing. There is no proselytizing that I could find. The only mandate was to those who already believed, and that was to walk the path. Allah does all the punishing; no one else, except for the one section mentioned above. Allah tells believers not to converse with non-believers, lest they be enticed to turn away from Allah.
There is a reference to Judgment Day with plenty of sermonizing.
Interestingly, half of the book refers to "us" and "we" when Allah (I presume) speaks in the first person. In the third person, the reference is Allah.
Also interesting to me was that the final part of the book seems to be written in a different voice--Allah is now referred to as the Lord about half the time, which was not in the earlier parts.
Allah created all men from two and created all tribes to know each other, but the believers are special, are brothers and told to make peace between themselves. Clearly the extremists have not read this.
This is basically a book of worship and sermonizing with almost no violence advocated.

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.

I started reading this and other books related to these scriptures and rediscovered the wonderful things about humans. The authors did an amazing job writing these scriptures. I've learned a lot and am gaining a better understanding of being human. Grateful to Amazon for making available this and other books.

I bought a copy of this book, because my son was curious about the Qur'an. I am a Christian, but I read the book because so many people believe that Muslim and Christianity go hand in hand. This is a mistake. The two religions couldn't be more different. If you're reading the book to gain knowledge of the Muslim religion, I would recommend it.
