The Qur’an (Koran, Quran)Prophet Mohammad’s Revelations
Few books in history are as important as the Qur’ân. Evoking devotion and passion amongst the faithful, this sacred book, composed in transcendentally beautiful language, is at the heart of one of the world’s great faiths.
A series of revelations made over a span of 23 years to the Prophet Muhammad, the Qur’ân is revered by Muslims throughout the world as the unmediated word of Allah. Evoking devotion and passion amongst the faithful, this sacred book, composed in transcendentally beautiful language, is at the heart of one of the world’s great faiths.
Translations of Muhammad’s revelations from the 7th century Arabic have always raised deeply vexing questions. The first translation of the Qur’ân in the West was made by the 12th century monk Robert of Ketton. 800 years later, Marmaduke Pickthall was the first English Muslim to translate the Qur’ân. He himself called his work an ‘interpretation’, aware that although the literal meaning could be rendered, the perfection of the original was untranslatable: ‘That inimitable symphony, the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy.’ He collaborated closely with Islamic authorities and scholars as he worked, with the result that few translations have won such widespread respect and affection within the Islamic world.
