About the book:

This celebrated translation from the Arabic by N.J. Dawood of the full text of the Koren is complemented by numerous magnificent colour illustrations of mosques from around the world. "For Muslims the Koran is the infallible word of Allah, as revealed to the Prophet Mohammed by the Angel Gabriel over 1300 years ago. It is the earliest work of Classical Arabic prose and a literary masterpiece of surpassing excellence. The Koran is all things to the devout Muslim : it is history, sacred and profane; it is prayer; it is a code of civil and religious law; and it is a guide to conduct and meditation." N.J. Dawood was born in Baghdad and came to England as an Iraq State Scholar in 1945 and graduated from London University. He has edited and abridged 'The Muqaddimah' of Ibn Khaldoun and translated numerous works from English into Arabic and from Arabic into English.
