It is a very complete version, including the transliteration of Arabic into Roman characters, an index on Qur'an topics and a clear layout which helps to recite the text. (The word "tajweed" means to improve, make better. Tajweed of the Holy Qur'an is the knowledge and application of the rules of recitation).
The features of the book are impressive. When holding it in your hands you feel, as it were, the importance of the book. That is also why this book is recommended instead of buying a translation without the original Arabic. With this Qur'an you do not buy only a translation of the Qur'an, but the Quar'an itself.
Being Buddhist myself, I can recommend anybody to buy this book and read every day some pages with an open mind. It is said that the Qur'an can only be fully appreciated when one can read the text in Arabic. Also it is without question that the text is not easy to understand. But at a minimum reading the English translation will help you to understand how much religions in these world are related to each other. You will read for instance in sura 2: "Those who believe (in the Qur'an) and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians, - any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work rightousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve."
Some sites, like [...], recommend to first read some introductions to the Islam. However, I would advice to first buy this Qur'an and read some pages and take it from there. Starting with the English text in the original Arabic context, no doubt will invoke the motivation to read more about this important book.Read more ›
1. The color coded guide to tajweed; I am not an expert but know the rules enought that this color coding helps me implement those in recitation more than I could without this extra help..
2. Every page begins and ends with a complete verse. In other words, no verse runs from one page to the next. This may sound trivial, but it help you plan to read a certain number of pages every day.
3. The entire quran is printed in 604 pages or roughly 600 pages. So if you were to read a page a day, it would take you about 600 days or 20 months to get through the entire Quran. If you read 2 pages a day, you would be done in 10 months. Another way to look at it - you could do a complete study of the Quran between 2 consecutive Ramadans!
4. Has a complete page of duas at the that are meant to be recited upon completion of the Quran, but really can be used at any other time as well.
5.The index is color coded; it helps quickly see where entries regarding a certain topic (such as Zakah for instance) begin and end. Helps guage what's discussed most and what least, plus lets you get a feel for what topics are covered and to what extent relative to others.
Trust me, these little provide a great deal of structure that helps the cause.
I think it is out of print (don't quote me on that). Published by Dar Al-Ma'arifah. The current available edition, in addition, contains transliteration, making it almost double the size in thickness. I prefer this edition, since I don't need transliteration.
