The Koran (Al-Qur'an)


Three Translations of The Koran (Al-Qur'an)

The Koran (Quran, Qur'an, Koran, Qur’ān, Coran, Kuran, and al-Qur’ān), central religious text of Islam, is considered by Muslims to be the verbatim word of God (Arabic: Allah). It consists of 114 suras, classified as either Meccan or Medinan depending upon their place and time of revelation. (MAKKA or MADINA) This version is an interpretation by three translators:

Y: = Qur'an Translation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali

P: = Qur'an Translation by Marmaduke Pickthall

S: = Qur'an Translation by Mohammad Habib Shakir


Yes it is the Holy Qur'an, our guide. Are you looking for qustions about death? Are you confused about what is wrong and what is right? You can find the answers in this Holy Book.--Submitted by Jeddir Jihade


The Quran is the Muslim scripture, that is to say the scripture of the followers of Islam. Islam is the religion established among the Arabs - a people until then largely confined to the Arabian Peninsula - by the Prophet Muhammad in the early seventh century. The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad by God through the agency of the angel Gabriel; this took place partly in Mecca, his hometown, and partly in Medina, where he succeeded in creating a state in an otherwise stateless tribal society. The message was revealed in Arabic, the language of the people it was initially addressed to, even though the message was ultimately for the whole of humanity. The Quran specifically mentions that Muhammad was the messenger to the whole of mankind, and that he is the last messenger to be sent. Thus, the Quran is the final message that supersedes and reiterates the basic religion God ordained for the Jews and the Christians, as well as the Muslims. Today, the total number of Muslims in the world is more than a billion. For all Muslim communities, whatever their language and wherever they live, the Quran is their scripture.--Submitted by Anonymous
