9780141393834: The Koran (Penguin Classics)

'Across the language barrier Dawood captures the thunder and poetry of the original' The Times

The Koran is universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel nearly fourteen hundred years ago. Its 114 chapters, or surahs, recount the narratives central to Muslim belief, and together they form one of the world's most influential prophetic works and a literary masterpiece in its own right. But, above all, the Koran provides the rules of conduct that remain fundamental to the Muslim faith today: prayer, fasting, almsgiving, pilgrimage to Mecca and absolute faith in God and His apostle.

Also available from Penguin: The Koran with Parallel Text 9780141393841

About the Author:

N.J. Dawood founded The Arabic Advertising & Publishing Company in 1959, which is now one of the major producers of Arabic typesetting outside of the Middle East. He is best known for his translation of the Koran, the first in contemporary English, for the Penguin Classics in 1956. It has now sold over a million copies.
