The Koran is universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible word
of God as first revealed to the prophet Muhammad by the angel Gabriel
nearly fourteen hundred years ago. Its 114 chapters recount the
narratives and rules of conduct central to Islamic belief, and together
they form one of the world’s most influential prophetic works and a
literary masterpiece in its own right. This newly revised edition of N.
J. Dawood’s classic translation is also available in a larger edition
with the original Arabic in parallel text.
