Critic Reviews

"...by far the best text currently available in the English language...incontestably one of the finest interpretations of the scared scripture of Islam. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this translation to students and others seeking to understand the essence and epitome of the Quranic message." (Prof. T. Hargery, director, African Studies, Northeast Missouri State University, Kirksville) 

"It is certainly a work of which any scholar might legitimately be proud." (The Quest, London)

Not what I expected

The reading is constantly interrupted with commentary , And the narrators voice is very boring and mono tone. I will try to find another one to select

the commentary is necessary for true understanding

at first I did not like the commentary, only because I did not have the knowledge of why it was there. I just wanted to speed through. BUT once I realized that commentary helped me truly digest the text. this was the only time I truly could not stop listening as I can see how everything resonates with current daily lives.. absolutely amazing!

Not what I was expecting.

I felt there are too many details. I just wanted to listen to the Holy Quran, not commentary.

This book is NOT the Quran.

This book is NOT the Quran.
I bought this book because I wanted to learn,
more about the Quran and Islam.
I am NOT Jewish.
Verse’s from the Quran are quoted,
with very long interpretations of each verse.
After a few verse’s and interpretations,
the author starts with his ANTI-JEW bullsh**.
According to the author,
Jews are responsible for all the bad things in the world.
According to the author,
Jews are Sub-Human monkey’s and pigs.
After listening to this hateful Muhammadan Jihadi,
I learned all I needed to learn about the Quran and Islam.

In depth reading and commentary for a beginner

As an American with externally limited experience and knowledge of Islam, I found this book to be a great starting place. The commentary and language explanations helped give a deeper understanding than I could have ever hoped for. I do not claim to be Muslim, however I much better understand and respect for the faith based on this experience.

Luckily this title is also available in hard copy so I plan to re-read the physical copy so I can focus on the words of the Qur’an and less focus on the extensive notes and commentary.

Footnotes & Commentary

Was very excited to see a Maulana Muhammad Ali translation in audio but was disappointed that it contained extensive footnote commentary. Please produce a Maulana Muhammad Ali translation with a non footnote/commentary version.

All commentary, no Qur'an

Every chapter goes like this:

- 5-10 minute introduction
- 3-5 seconds (a single sentence) of the Qur'an
- 5-10 minutes of commentary
- 3-5 seconds of the Qur'an
- 5-10 minutes of commentary
- 3-5 seconds of the Qur'an
- repeat to end

This is not an exaggeration in the slightest. Completely useless to anyone who wants to listen to the Qur'an itself.
