Title : Qur'an, The

Description :
The Qur'an website, provided by the University of Southern California's Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement, offers English translations of the Muslim holy book. Divided into 114 separate pages, corresponding to the Surahs (chapters) of the Qur'an, the resource provides a line by line rendering of the Arabic. Three translations (by Yusuf Ali, Marmaduke Mohammad Pickthal, and M. H. Shakir) of each verse are given, and while this parallel format means this is not necessarily an ideal text for swift reading, it is a valuable tool for those wishing to engage in comparative study. The emphasis lies on a faithful representation of the original rather than on translation into literary English. The site also offers an index of the Qur'an.
