This is an auction for THE QUR'AN.

This is a Folio Society hardback, in new condition, in its original slip case.

"This Folio edition of the Qur'an follows Marmaduke Pickthall's interpretation of 1930, which was the first by an English-speaking convert to Islam and gained the approval of an important Muslim authority, the Nizam of Hyderabad."

"The Quran (literally meaning "the recitation"; also romanized Qur'an or Koran) is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God. It is widely regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. The Quran is divided into chapters called suras, which are then divided into verses, called ayahs. Muslims believe the Quran was revealed by God to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE, when Muhammad was 40, and concluding in 632, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Muhammad, a proof of his prophethood, and the culmination of a series of divine messages that started with the messages revealed to Adam and ended with Muhammad. The word "Quran" occurs some 70 times in the text of the Quran, although different names and words are also said to be references to the Quran. According to the traditional narrative, several companions of Muhammad served as scribes and were responsible for writing down the revelations. Shortly after Muhammad's death, the Quran was compiled by his companions who wrote down and memorized parts of it . . . "
