Reviews - What do customers think about Roman Translation of the Holy Quran: Roman Transliteration & English Translation With Full Arabic Text?
A magnificent book for the newer Revert or student! Oct 16, 2007
I have owned a copy of this translation with the side by side tranliteration and find it extremely helpful to recite the Quran in arabic and it has been beneficial and instrumental in me learning to read and recite in Arabic. The book reads in the traditional Arabic manner, from right to left, and the English translation, the transliteration, and the arabic text of the surahs and ayahs are side by side on each page. Wonderful, get it if you can! it is a classic!
No Commentary, But Nice to Have Transliteration Included Mar 23, 2006
Though I am a Christian, not Muslim, I read the Qur'an also to see for myself what it teaches rather than hear secondhand. This Qur'an was given me by someone from the local mosque and from what I read in numerous Islamic websites/books, it is a respected translation among Muslims. Though A. Yusuf Ali does have a Qur'an that also includes a commentary, this one does not, but instead has 3 main features: English text, Arabic text (in Arabic writing), and the transliteration (i.e., spelling out the sound of the Arabic by using English, 'Roman,' letters). (Tip for the nonMuslim who's trying to understand the order/organization of the Qur'an: the suras are organized by length, longest to shortest.)
