The Qur’an (Oxford World’s Classics) is the finest available translation of the Noble Qur’an in English language. This book is written in the contemporary form of English, with minimal use of cryptic language, while retaining the original eloquence of the scripture. The author also explains the manner in which it is segregated into different topics for easy reference. The book also examines the issues pertaining to intolerance, combativeness, and oppression of women which are mentioned in the Qur’an.
The author’s notes also explain the historical, geographical, and personal references made indirectly in the Qur’an.
