With so many English translations of the Qur'an available, it is inevitable that the reader would ask why make another one? The answer to that question lays in the current structure of the Islamic faith itself, and the fact that, for many centuries, Islam has been primarily sub-categorized as either Sunni or Shia or one of the many other denominations that have emerged over the years. As such, all translators have belonged to one school of thought or another which clearly comes across in the interpretation of and choice of translation for specific words or verses. The Qur'an is the result of a group effort by people who do not belong to any denomination, and, for the first time in many centuries, are simply proud to call themselves Muslims as God had named centuries ago. Also, while many translators have been sincere in their rendering of the Arabic meaning of the words, they have been unable to refrain from adding comments in the form of parenthesis within the text of the translation or in the form of footnotes and appendices to reflect their views on certain verses or the views of the denomination they adhere to. The Qur'an is unique in the fact that it uses neither footnotes nor comments letting the text speak for itself and delivering to the reader as close a rendition of the pure message of the Qur'an as physically possible. Finally, no matter how much can be said about this translation or any other, it is imperative to point out that guidance cannot come from any human being, rather, the only true knowledge and guidance can only come from the One who initiated the heavens and Earth. May He be glorified forever. Welcome to the path of God alone.

About the Author:

The Monotheist Group is a pen name used by the Free-Minds Organization which is an Islamic reform movement that began in 1997, dedicated to the promotion of God alone. The movement seeks the abandonment of all sectarian innovations through a return to the principles of the Qur'an. The Free-Minds Organization has attracted the attention of a number of think tanks (namely the Rand Corporation in its Building Moderate Muslim Network report) as well as some noted authors in the field of Islamic Reform.

Book Description Brainbow Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over the course of centuries, Islam has undergone a process of sub-categorization into numerous denominations. As such, nearly all translators have belonged to one school of thought or another, allowing the influence of such denomination(s) to come across in their interpretation of specific words or verses, and how they choose to translate them. The Message: A Translation of the Glorious Qur an is an attempt to be free from the influences of sectarianism, and gives the reader a genuine and honest viewpoint of Monotheism s Holy Book by translating it the way it always deserved to be translated. The Message: A Translation of the Glorious Qur an is the result of a group effort by people who do not belong to any denomination, and for the first time in many centuries, are simply proud to call themselves Muslims as God had named us centuries ago. The Message: A Translation of the Glorious Qur an is unique in the fact that it uses neither footnotes nor author comments, letting the text speak for itself and delivering to the reader as close a rendition of the pure message of the Qur an as physically possible.
