The Koran: With a Parallel Arabic Text

Sampul Depan
N. J. Dawood
Penguin, 1990 - 613 halaman
The Koran, as N. J. Dawood states, is 'not only one of the most influential books of prophetic literature but also a literary masterpiece in its own right. Universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as revealed to Mohammed by the Angel Gabriel nearly fourteen hundred years ago, the Koran still provides the rules of conduct fundamental to the Arab way of life. N. J. Dawood's masterly translation, first published in the mid-1950s and now completely revised in the light of a life-long study of the language and style of the Koran, presents the English reader with a clear, fluent and authoritative rendering, while fully reflecting the characteristic flavour and rhythm of the original. The present edition follows the original sequence of the Koranic suras and is accompanied by a comprehensive index and a parallel Arabic text.

This is a beautiful edition of the Qur'an, which reads from right to left instead of left to right. The pages are as thin as the pages you might find in most Christian bibles. The commentaries are useful & it's sure to be a worthwhile read for those who want to study the Qur'an. Baca ulasan lengkap

This book includes the Qur'an in English and Arabic along with a commentary. As translations go, I like this one. The Qur'an is often elliptical in its expression and this copy glosses in the elipses ... Baca ulasan lengkap
