Description

The Holy Qur'an was revealed in Arabic over 1400 years ago for the whole of humanity to the last prophet in Islam, Muhammad (peace be upon him). Written down and recorded as it was revealed, The Holy Qur'an remains unchanged, even to this day. The Holy Qur'an is considered the greatest miracle given to the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

This is a Modern English reading of the interpretations and meanings of the Holy Qur'an, based on interpretations of the meaning by Dr Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali and Dr Muhammad Muhsin Khan.

To understand the complete meaning and spiritual messages, we recommend that listeners learn Arabic and read in the language of the Holy Qur'an. The Holy Qur'an is best learned with teachers and study circles.

This production in the English language is only an interpretation of the Arabic.

Intelligible Translation and Interpretation

Most translations of the Qur'an are either translated too literally and/or narrated by nonnative English speakers, both of which make it difficult to follow or listen to. That is not the case here. The narrator is clear and professional and easy to follow, and the interpretive translation also makes it a little easier to understand. Strict literalists may not agree with some of the English wording, but anyone wanting to understand Islam through an English translation of the Qur'an will be well-served by this audiobook.

Made reading 8 Chapters of the Qu'ran comparable to watching Netflix lol

Easy on the ears...voice was animated enough to bring the stories to life. Worth every cent or credit!

Good but not acurate!

If you could sum up The Holy Qur'an in three words, what would they be?

It's well written and performed but it's not a good translation. It's okay for getting a general sense of the Qur'an but there are important points (attitudes towards violence, other religions, etc.) which are confusing in this translation. And some less sensational issues that are more clearly wrong.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Allah.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It does capture some of the beauty of the Qur'an.

Any additional comments?

Not a bad starting place for an English overview. Combined with _Muhammad_ by Martin Lings but don't take it as truly representing Islamic beliefs.

Great reading of the Holy Qur'an

Would you listen to The Holy Qur'an again? Why?

I plan on listening again, at the latest next month of Ramadan, but likely before that on my commutes to work.

Best English Reading of Quran I have found

This isn't only the best english reading of the Quran I have found, it is kind of the only one, at least the only decent one. Worth listening if you have an interest in Islam and western religions, certainly has some entertaining and informative bits. Overall though probably wouldn't recommend the audiobook, the book is quite repetitive and hard to follow. Probably better to read if you are really interested in it. As far as the 'story' goes it has some interesting 'historical' information and many sayings and laws. Its quite short compared to the bible, and actually has many similarities as well, such as certain stories and such. Generally the message is the same as the old testament. It does emphasize the bad things that will happen to you if you don't follow the rules quite more significantly than the bible though, such as hell. I guess they had figured out by that time it was a good way to get people to do what you want.

Interesting read

Feel like more us should consider reading and understanding. Different and similar to the Bible.

Difficult to navigate

The narrator has a great voice. The story is told well. The navigation is negligible. You cannot bookmark, or actually see where you are, or left off. The book reset once to the beginning, and I had to find my place by scrolling in 30 sec increments. There is no way to read particular Sura.

Be ready and vigilant

Down with it and ready to line it up, move that yoga mat over and pray to most Gracious Being.
