    This book was one of the most amazing books that I have ever read. It changed my whole perspective on the muslim people.I had a very positive view of the Muslim people and their beliefs after reading this.

    what I learned from this book is that Islam is NOT what they say it is in the media and that it is also not what the radicals claim it is. The Qur'an is the perfect companion to our own Holy Bible.

    Before you read on, it is important that you read and understand this:THIS REVIEW IS WRITTEN BY AN ATHEIST. I DO NOT SUGAR-COAT NOR DO I WRAP MY OPINIONS IN COTTON TO "PROTECT" THE DELICATE AND/OR EASILY OFFENDED RELIGIOUS READER. IF YOU FOLLOW THE ISLAMIC FAITH AND GET OFFENDED WHEN YOUR HOLY BOOK (AND RELIGION) RECEIVES CRITICISM READ NO FURTHER! YOU WILL NOT LIKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE QURAN. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED: IF YOU CONTINUE TO ...

    A book for life, a book for the next life, a book for all eternity, unspoken by man, engulfed by humanity but indiscribable of any earthly tongue. I cannot let you understand it, but i can invite you to feel it...

    My Noble Qur'an is Arabic with Meanings translated to Portuguese(Br).Amazing interesting and free of misteries.Islam goes straight to the point, based on science and logic."Biʾsm Allāh ar-raḥmān ar-raḥīm" (“in the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate”).

    It's the Koran. Even if, like me, you are not religious you should still read the Koran since it is such a big part of this world. If for no other reason than to have some sort of understanding into what everyone is talking about and fighting over and if you are religious, if you are Christian or Muslim you HAVE to read this so that no one else can tell you what it says; if you rely on others they can mislead you, whether purposely or not, down t...

    I found this a lot easier to read then the bible. It's also a lot shorter.Anyone concerned with the state of modern Islam should read this inspiring text. As wityh the bible there are parts that are clearly outdated and even offensive. One must really imagine life a very long time ago, before there there was computers and silly puddy.

    Everyone should read this book at least once in their lifetime. I think it's especially critical given the conflict between Islam and the West.

    No more of this book! You may wonder why no more with this book. Well, Turn to page 54 of this book, and read the fourth chapter, verse 34, and put yourself in my place when you discover this books permits the male to beat the woman, just because she is not a male. Here is the whole verse:"If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teachings of God:], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them."What?! Hit them? You m...

    I've been raised as a Christian, pretty much from the very beginning. After 25 years, I decided to call it quits and identify as an atheist. There are plenty of reasons I have for making that decision, but one day, I thought, that those reasons were all due to my reactions against Christianity. So here I am, finding myself rejecting religion, all due to assumptions based on one religion: Christianity. Thus, I felt uncomfortable to reject religion...

    Note, May 22, 2013: Some of the discussion below convinced me that I should add a couple of clarifying sentences, which I've just done.With the current controversies over the projected "Ground Zero" mosque and the threatened Koran burning, a review of the Koran (also spelled Quran; there isn't always a one-on-one correspondence of Arabic and Latin letters) seemed topical. That might seem ground that angels fear to tread, fraught as it is with con...

    الخمس نجوم بتوعي للقرآن الكريم و بس :) .. اتفقنا :) ؟؟.....God is Merciful .. Most Merciful, The King, The peace, The dominant, The mighty, The Creator .. God has a beautiful names as a whole, is not (unknown), is (one Lord) for Christians and Muslims and Buddhists and Brahma and ancient pharaohs, all sanctified (God), and as Muslims we do not have a problem if the Christians wrote that God is the author of th...

    If you only ever in your entire life read one book, read this one. I promise you, it is unlike anything else you'll ever read.

    The holy Quran is a book that everyone should read no matter the religion but it should be read in its original language, like most books that are translated it loses flavor when its not.The Arabic language when read has many different meanings and when translated it loses those,so u get one verse that means one thing when actually it has 3 or 4 different meanings (does that make sense?)as much as i read the Quran i learn something new every time...

    This is awkward. Well, I'm a Muslim. Therefore, I will find this the best book in the history of civilization. =)

    This book has been one of the biggest reading disappointments of my life. It starts off with the line: "This Book is not to be doubted." My brain is my second favorite organ. Why would I want to hang it up on a rack while I read the Koran? Of course, I am going to doubt it if I feel it is warranted. Why would any intelligent person not doubt? Then it gets into a retelling of the Old Testament of the Bible. And actually just some of the stories, s...

    In the turbulent age we live in, it seems appropriate to give this book a go.Almost all the visible influences of Islam that I have seen have been negative. As a historian, I am faced with the unfortunate series of events where the advent of this religion and its spread through the Arab conquests either destroyed or subverted many of the most fascinating cultures in human history.As a citizen of the 21st century, I am faced with the obvious dange...

    QURANQuran (means recitation in Arabic)Muslims recite the whole book once during the month of Ramazan, this is happenning since 1428 years now, some people recite this once everyday, some once every week. It has 114 chapters (Sura) This book is in Arabic language.Quran is a big Ocean, Amateurs like me make mistakes with such a big subject, but I think it is better to be imperfect and full of mistakes than be perfect and all alone.I will only desc...

    The Holy Qu'ran is a fascinating read. While I am not Muslim, I appreciate the impact this text has had on world history. The writing style and structure of the book is extremely interesting. I feel like after having read the Suras, I have gained a great appreciation for the roughly one billion peaceful Muslims worldwide.

    In my quest to read and form my own opinion about the world's holy books, The Koran was, for me, the most tedious yet. It took me months to slog through. In terms of moral guidance it is nearly useless, as a source of transcendental inspiration or as far as espousing meaningful or even common human values it is practically devoid of merit. Forget about historical, theological, or (of course?) scientific insights. The Koran reads like a litany of ...
