5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Ultimate Study Version of the Qur'an 26 février 2010
Par Debra Dirks - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is the ultimate study version of the Qur'an in the English language. Yahiya Emerick has given us a superlative translation of the Qur'an into a crisp, clear, and easy to read, modern English.

Interspersed throughout the text in a different font for clear differentiation from the Qur'anic text, Emerick provides enlightening vignettes that describe the historical context in which various passages of the Qur'an were revealed and that lead to a much fuller and deeper understanding of the Qur'anic passage under discussion. In addition, over 2,600 footnotes provide a wealth of commentary (tafsir) derived from the sayings of Prophet Muhammad, linguistic considerations involving the Arabic language, Arabic poetry, etc. Also supplementing the text are separate essays providing a biography of Prophet Muhammad, a discussion of how to approach the Qur'an, the ahadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad) and their sources, the prophets recognized by Islam, Muhammad's lineage, chronologies regarding the revelation of the Qur'an and the life of Prophet Muhammad, biographies of Muhammad's wives and various of his companions and antagonists, etc.

For any Muslim in America who is not completely fluent in Arabic, for any college student taking a course in Islamic studies or comparative religion, and for anyone who wants a highly readable translation of the Qur'an with in-depth commentary, this is the first and foremost translation that should be gracing their bookshelves.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Superior But Not Perfect 7 août 2010
Par Thomas S. Barto - Publié sur

Yahiya Emerick dedicated a big part of his life in creating his expounded translation of the Qur'an. The amount of time spent on research is obvious through his elaborate blocks of background information and footnotes. The "Extended Study Edition" is an excellent resource for extensive research for understanding the history behind the verses and how they were perceived at the time of the revelations. Emerick uses many hadiths [teachings of Prophet Muhammed (peace upon him)] and sunnahs [examples from the Prophet's life] to explain aspects surrounding particular verses.

I was pleased that Emerick disproved many myths about Islam; for examples, the myth that Islam forbids music, and the myth that adoption is unislamic. I disagreed with a few of his footnotes, however. I was particularly disappointed that he upheld the myth that, in Paradise, men will have perpetual virgins "only to please our carnal desires, which will be without restriction..." (n 48). Of course, in Paradise we presumably will be perfected, spiritual beings without sexual lusts. (I certainly do not want to go to a Heaven where people are living with the same unrestrained, sexual immorality as they are today.)

The book lacks user-friendliness on one point, which is that the chapter numbers are not at the tops of pages. In other words, if you opened the book at a random page, you would not be able to tell in which chapter you are reading.

Emerick created an above average translation of the meanings of the Qur'an. He has some fault, however, in grammatical skill and poetic use of the English language; therefore, the literary value falls short of excellence. The translation lacks some elegance as Emerick often misses the tone of the original Qur'an. In translation, reflecting tone is just as important as reflecting the meanings. Although the translation is superior to other English translations, it lacks the perfection that the Qur'an deserves. Still, Emerick is to be commended for a thorough and important contribution.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best translations available 13 juillet 2010
Par Rebecca - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a new translation of the Qur'an that was published earlier this year (2010). There are four editions available - a translation only, a translation with asbab al nuzul (circumstances/cause for revelation), a translation with asbab al nuzul and limited commentary, and a translation with asbab al nuzul and full notes. This edition is the latter.

This is an excellent translation written in modern English. It is written in paragraph format, using italics to denote quotations, making it very easy to follow. Each chapter begins with detailed background information. Asbab al nuzul is written in a different typeface before the associated verses, which makes it clear that it is not part of the translation itself. Commentary is written in footnotes, unfortunately in a very small font; however, this is understandable given this translation is over 800 pages long in a single volume. The paper quality is very nice; none of that almost see-through paper that is common in many translations.

The commentary in this translation is excellent and different from any other translation I have read in all that it encompasses. First, Emerick allows the Prophet (SAWS) to explain the Qur'an by way of ahadith, which are contained in the footnotes. Footnotes also detail what a wide array of classical commentators have said about the verses. If it is the view of one or two commentators only, he names them. If it is a majority of commentators, he states as such. If there is a minority view that he happens to feel is strong, he states it is a minority view and explains why this view appeals to him. As a result, you aren't left wondering if the translator is pushing a certain angle. Emerick also includes historical references (people, places, events)as well as some of the scientific/facts and miracles found in the Qur'an. Lastly, Emerick's footnotes include commentary and experiences by the companions. Sometimes it is a direct quote they have made about a particularly verse, but other times it shows the verse "in action" by showing how companions embodied or lived out the verses by relating stories from their lives to further illustrate a verse. For example, a verse about charity may have a footnote that details a story about a companion's generosity.

In addition to the translation and extensive commentary, this Qur'an has many other sections:

A Brief Look at the Life of Muhammad (saws)
How to Approach the Qur'an
Prophetic Traditions and their Sources
The Prophets of Islam
Muhammad's Lineage
A Timeline of Major Events of Prophethood
Chronology of Revelation
Parts and Sections
Biographies of Muhammad's Wives
Biographical Sketches of Muhammad's Major Companions
The Rogues Gallery (I love this name!)
an extensive list of Further Resources and a detailed index.

I consider this is one of the best translations available. Lucid language, clarity on what is part of the translation and what is not by clever use of different typefaces, extensive, balanced commentary, nice quality paper, and the additional sections distinguish this translation from the rest out there.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 GREAT reference for serious students of Qur'an 13 juin 2010

This has been a excellent addition to my library and am increasingly leaning on it for insightful information. I would recommend it to all, young and old alike. Emerick is an excellent writer and, being born in the U.S., can put the information is today's English, which is sometimes hard to find. I would consider it a "must-have" for everyone's library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best 25 octobre 2010

This is probably one of the best English translations available. I have both the hard copy and the kindle edition. Most verses have the background information which is immensely helpful in understanding what God is saying and why He is saying so. It also has a plenty of Footnotes for further explanations as well. This clearly explains the fact that Quran is a dynamic book, revealed over 23 years and verses were revealed in response to the different situations the prophet was facing at that time.

This book makes it easy to understand the fact that most of the verses related to war and the God's command to fight the enemies were only applicable to those particular situations, and not at other times. Islam has nothing to do with violence and God has FORBIDDEN us from harming or attacking anyone, based purely on his/her faith or religion. Islam has nothing to do with supporting to attack non-Muslims. I would refer to this verse (5:32) where God says in Quran, "if anyone kills a human being - unless it be (in punishment) for murder or for spreading damage on earth - it shall be as though he had killed all humankind: whereas, if anyone saves a human life, it shall be as though he had saved the lives of all humankind". No one can be forced to believe or accept Islam and it has been strictly forbidden to do so. The Christians and the Jews do not readily recognize Islam or the Prophet Muhammad, but the Quran repeatedly mentioned about their prophets, i.e,; Moses and Jesus and Muslims are required to respect their prophets.

I highly recommend this book to the Non-Muslims who will have a better understanding of what Islam is all about and remove the myths that Islam is synonymous to violence. It isn't. I do recommend to use other English translations to be read side by side, just to make sure to get other translator's perspective as well. The Kindle edition is troublesome to navigate, as it does not have a Table of content. But I have bookmarked the beginning of each verse to get around that problem. The author should address this issue and let us upgrade who already have a kindle edition.
