The person responsible has even created a cool avatar for His homepage. Nice work! Admit it, Infidels: you have been comprehensively outplayed here. The classiest thing to do would be to have some suitable representative come forward and formally concede. That might at least win you back some respect. Though, confusingly, the title of the book is now given only in Arabic script.
If it's an attempt at a compromise solution, I very much doubt that the Muslims will buy it. Watch this space. They have retaliated by changing the title to Roman script only, even removing the apostrophe. This flagrantly provocative gesture will surely not go unpunished. I suspect that the move is deeper than it looks, since His new homepage contains a long quote in Arabic referring to several passages in the Qur'an. Maybe someone better acquainted with these matters can explain it to the rest of us? I think the Infidels have a home side advantage here, which makes me admire the brave and resourceful Muslim hackers all the more.
Come on Islam! You can beat those security measures! It looks like the Muslims have recovered from their unexpected loss of form. Now, the question is how long they can keep possession. Both sides are demonstrating extraordinary tenacity in this long-drawn-out conflict! Quite inspiring to all us wishy-washy agnostics sitting on the sidelines It's no good making excuses any more. The romantic in me wants the exciting, creative Muslims to win, but the facts are more than obvious: however they've managed it, the grimly humorless Infidels have taken their game to a new level.
Muslims, you need to figure out what the Infidels are doing and stop them. It's as simple as that. Though I am surprised to see that He still only has two fans, the ever-faithful Nabila and Tarek. Truly, their reward will be great. I do wonder what thoughts Amazon have on this vital question. Which way could the different options push sales in the Muslim world? I imagine they have top analysts crunching the numbers as I write. The author of the Qur'an is now given as "A". Who is A, I hear you ask? I haven't the slightest notion. The one slim lead we're given is that A has also co-authored Jamba Juice Power with Kirk Perron - possibly a minor prophet, but, to be honest, I'm clutching at straws here.
I don't dare predict what might happen next. Stay tuned. For people who haven't yet looked at His Homepage, there is some interesting theological information: gender: male genre: Religion influences: Almighty Yahweh, Jesus Christ Oh, and He has now acquired a third fan, Esraa. MJ claims to have tracked down the hackers. Kyle, Fil and Zain if you are indeed the people responsible , please take a bow! I have never seen so much activity. Has a fatwa been issued? Are Amazon hoping to boost sales of the new Q'indle?
Whatever is going on? Is it the end of the world? I have consulted the Book of Revelation, but all I can find is And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. I suppose that may be a warning against blocking changes to authorship attributions on Goodreads, but I'm not at all sure. I was a bit puzzled by the bed, but after a couple of chapters realized that it must be a "carpet-bed", presumably some kind of Middle Eastern futon. Just in case you were also wondering.
If you cut and paste into Google Translate and click on the loudspeaker icon, you can even hear how it's pronounced. Come on Infidels, you're boring us all to death. But I just know you can do better. Raise your game and make your fellow-atheists proud of their lack of belief! The opening at any rate looks familiar: But a little further down, I found this: I'm sorry, it's more responsibility than I can handle. Someone else will have to take care of it. Don't know why, but I just can't stop yawning today.
Must have stayed up too late or something. All in all, there are 87 pages of edits. I hope someone is archiving this priceless cultural document, which surely contains enough material for at least two doctoral dissertations I see it's going to be Another Of Those Days. I should have guessed as much when I saw on Yahoo News that a two-headed calf had been born, a rain of frogs had occurred, and Lady Gaga had been photographed wearing a sensible outfit with flat shoes Though now I don't know who to root for, since it appears that some Infidels have started ironically supporting Allah.
I wish theology was less confusing. Just a coincidence, I suppose. The Infidels once again change the author to Anonymous, but Islam's ever-vigilant cyberwarriors immediately change it back, even using "Allah Almighty" to show that they, at least, possess imagination and a sense of fun. I apologize to my atheist friends for my obvious partiality, mais c'est plus fort que moi.
In other words, the Qur'an was dictated, not by Allah, but by someone else. I do not pretend to understand these theological subtleties at any but the most superficial level. All the same, I feel I should remind the person who made the change that this seems uncomfortably close to the idea which got Mr.
Rushdie into so much trouble a few years ago. At risk of repeating myself, it is entirely inappropriate that this person should be credited with the authorship of the Qur'an. View all comments.

However, the Qu'ran is no mor HJ Hof, have you actually read any of it? However, the Qu'ran is no more violent than the bible. Religion, if taken to the extreme, can lead to violence.
However, the vast majority do not practice it this way. Christianity has had its share of very bloody history You can't point a finger at just one religion and say its evil or bad. A minority of the people who claim to follow it are bad. That doesn't make all of the millions of people who follow it bad. I stand by compassion and empathy.
Blind fear of muslims serves no purpose. I choose to educate myself rather than hide in my misconceptions.

Sure Megan, I have read it in parts, and was appalled by the frequent referral how infidels must burn in hell and should have their head chopped off. Not to mention the gender issue. It's what today's society now recognizes as hate speech. Humanity has progressed significantly since the primitive times when the book was written. It is a disgrace that such intolerance is being tolerated under an ill-applied label of religious freedom.
The book needs serious revisions, it needs cutting out of everything which violates human rights. The Qur'an is the perfect companion to our own Holy Bible. View all 29 comments. View all 7 comments. Why the above disclaimer? I am extremely fed up with all the people who come here and do nothing but whine and complain about my review. All you do is showing us your lack of education, intelligence and respect.
Your comments clearly shows the world that you have actually read nothing at all: not the review in question, nor have you actually read and understood the content of the Quran, a book you profess to call sacred. All you do is read half a sentence, see the 1-star-rating and then you start complaining, instead of continue reading with an attempt of neutral eyes.
God forbid pun intended that you even start reading the comments that this review already has gotten before you start jotting down what has been written down before. From this moment on users who post comments that show disrespect and the above mentioned ignorance will be instantly blocked.
Only people that show respect and a minimum of half a brain will be allowed to discuss. Not happy? Go write your own review instead of whining about my opinion of a book I have read. I refuse to keep answering them, I've grown fed up with it especially because of their insulting and unfounded remarks. However, I know that I am not telling tales or being unprecise or untrue or even prejudiced in my claims.
I am not islamaphobe as some claim. I despise all organised religion that condones abuse and bigotry in any form, including the faith that I have been raised with: Christianity. After some research I have found the actual text in the Quran that proves that it does encourage sex with prepubescent girls a.

God makes His matter easy for anyone who heeds Him. Irving T. B Irving was an American Muslim author, professor, and scholar, who produced the first American English translation of the Quran. Therefore, making mention of the waiting-period for the girls who have not yet menstruated [my emphasis] , clearly proves that it is not only permissible to give away the girl in marriage at this age but it is also permissible for the husband to consummate marriage with her.
Now, obviously no Muslim has the right to forbid a thing which the Quran has held as permissible. I will refrain from commenting further and let the above speak for itself and encourage everyone who has read this book to re-read it again and write your own review. Hateful, disrespectful and harassing comments will be flagged, reported, deleted and the user who is posting said comments will get blocked. In particular I would like to draw your attention to Sahih Bukhari 5. When Allah's Apostle used to enter my dwelling place they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me.
The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for 'Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty. Fateh-al-Bari page , Vol. Don't have a copy of Sahih Bukhari at hand? And about the illusion of Islam being a religion of peace? That [is the command]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others.
And those who are killed in the cause of Allah - never will He waste their deeds. If you disagree with what Islam's holy books clearly state then I encourage you again to write your own review and see if you can prove the teachings of Islam wrong! A book for life, a book for the next life, a book for all eternity, unspoken by man, engulfed by humanity but indiscribable of any earthly tongue.

It's the Koran. Even if, like me, you are not religious you should still read the Koran since it is such a big part of this world. If for no other reason than to have some sort of understanding into what everyone is talking about and fighting over and if you are religious, if you are Christian or Muslim you HAVE to read this so that no one else can tell you what it says; if you rely on others they can mislead you, whether purposely or not, down the wrong path to understand the true message of th It's the Koran.

I won't rate it, because it's a holy book, and since when can you judge a holy book? I found it interesting to see all the things we, Jews and Muslims, have in common. It helped me understood way better what I was reading. Once and for all : if you seriously think being Muslim is about hating people, then it means you haven't read the Qur'an or that you're not even trying to understand what being Muslim truly means. I found this a lot easier to read then the bible. It's also a lot shorter. Anyone concerned with the state of modern Islam should read this inspiring text.
As wityh the bible there are parts that are clearly outdated and even offensive. One must really imagine life a very long time ago, before there there was computers and silly puddy.

Well, Turn to page 54 of this book, and read the fourth chapter, verse 34, and put yourself in my place when you discover this books permits the male to beat the woman, just because she is not a male.
Here is the whole verse: "If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teachings of God:], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. Hit them? You mean I a man hit a woman?! No hitting is acceptable No more of this book! No hitting is acceptable under any circumstance, regardless of what a woman does! No more of this book. Good riddance!

I believe no one can be finished with it unless they understand it fully and completely and then implement it fully and completely in their lives.
As that is near to impossible unless Allah wills it, I will never be changing the status to read of this miracle. I know that this book can change lives and will always enlighten the path of those who Allah wills and of those who will let it enlighten their path.
Every human being, I emphasise ag This is one book that I will never be finished reading. Every human being, I emphasise again that every human being should be give an oppertunity to read the Quran and those who are not previllaged enough to have the means should be helped by those who are. I think that it is the right of every human being to be guided and Allah is the only one who can do so.
I hope that more and more people will be able to find the means to read this amazing book and will also ask others to read it. And I pray to Allah that those who are misguided in the facts as to what the Quran holds, both muslims and non-muslims, that they would not heed what other people say anymore and would try to learn themselves.

I've been raised as a Christian, pretty much from the very beginning. After 25 years, I decided to call it quits and identify as an atheist. There are plenty of reasons I have for making that decision, but one day, I thought, that those reasons were all due to my reactions against Christianity.
So here I am, finding myself rejecting religion, all due to assumptions based on one religion: Christianity. Thus, I felt uncomfortable to reject religion across the board, using only data points from one I've been raised as a Christian, pretty much from the very beginning. Thus, I felt uncomfortable to reject religion across the board, using only data points from one religion.
After all, it's just like saying that I hate seafood when the only seafood I have eaten is shrimp. Thus, I picked the Qur'an. And I read it. So what is this about? This, as many people know, is the Holy Book of Islam. It is composed of chapters, called surahs, and each surah has several verses. From a statistical point of view, the opening surahs tend to be longer than the closing ones.
The second surah, for example, entitled "The Cow", has verses, while the th surah only has three. Each surah opens with In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful. I initially wanted to read the Qur'an because it is believed that the Qur'an is the most spectacular piece of Arabic literature. It also helps perhaps to understand what the cultural references are to novels that I have read in the past, especially those that dealt with Islamic characters.
Now that I have read the Qur'an, it would be easier to see where these characters are coming from. But another reason I wanted to read the Qur'an is because I wanted to put my thoughts to the test. I identify as an atheist, which means that I rejected the belief of religion in general. But in actuality, I've never known what I was rejecting, at least with respect to Islam. I need to read about it first, before I can be more comfortable in saying that I do not buy it as well.

After all, it's the scientific approach, that of experimentation. So, surahs later, I now have an opinion of what the Qur'an is. I was surprised at how some story lines are parallel to what I know the best, which is the Bible. There are characters that appeared in both, such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, even Jesus. The Jews and Christians both appear in the Qur'an, but unlike Christianity, for Muslims, Jesus is just another prophet. Somewhere the stories split, and there are characters that appear in the Qur'an but not in the Bible. I quite do not appreciate the catechism-like style of writing.
There were plenty of repetitions. Several lines of thought were repeated: how Allah is all merciful and most benevolent repeated before every chapter ; how humankind emerged from a drop of holy sperm; how Allah is all-powerful and all-wise; et cetera. I never expected it to be a scientific book, and as the Bible, the writing style is geared toward indoctrination.
The perspective is one of infallibility: the Qur'an only tells you that Allah is powerful, wise, and knows what is best for you. But it doesn't tell you WHY he is indeed claimed to be so. All you have to do is believe, and if you don't, you will face eternal destruction. I guess after reading this, I still conclude that Islam is not for me, and my personal conviction still holds ground. I am still an atheist. One thing though that I have to say regarding the Qur'an, is that many people think that the Qur'an is a violent book and Islam is a violent religion. But after reading it, I think that the violence is just the same as what the Bible has.
There is plenty of talk about believers and unbelievers, with the main gist as that the unbelievers will be punished by Allah. But the Bible also says the same thing. Believers will be blessed, while unbelievers will be punished, both in the Qur'an and in the Bible. Thus, to those people who burn Qur'ans because they think it's a violent book, perhaps they might want to read their own Bible too. If the Bible were made as a movie, I am pretty sure it would get an R rating. I understand that that is not the whole problem. There's the fundamentalists too.
But there are fundamentalists in Christianity too. Just check out what's found in Topeka, Kansas and you'll know what I am talking about. So, as this is a book review, I am giving it 3 out of 5 stars. It's an awesome piece of cultural heritage, but it failed to persuade me to change my beliefs. I ended the book feeling untouched. Shelves: other-nonfiction. Note, May 22, Some of the discussion below convinced me that I should add a couple of clarifying sentences, which I've just done.
With the current controversies over the projected "Ground Zero" mosque and the threatened Koran burning, a review of the Koran also spelled Quran; there isn't always a one-on-one correspondence of Arabic and Latin letters seemed topical. That might seem ground that angels fear to tread, fraught as it is with controversy, deeply-felt sensibilities for some, and Note, May 22, Some of the discussion below convinced me that I should add a couple of clarifying sentences, which I've just done. That might seem ground that angels fear to tread, fraught as it is with controversy, deeply-felt sensibilities for some, and the potential for verbal abuse and even physical violence in response.
It's also a challenge to distinguish between a review of the Koran per se and a full-blown discussion of Islam and its role in the world; the two subjects inevitably impinge on each other, but they aren't identical. But Goodreads exists to provide book discussion --especially discussion of books with ideas that greatly impact the modern world; and by any definition, this one fits that description.
Reviews so far tend to fall into three camps: those by Moslems lauding the book to the skies, those by Christian and Jewish believers angrily attacking it, and those by skeptics who see it as a prime example of the ludicrous nature of any and all religions. My own perspective is that of a committed Christian believer convinced of the truth claims of Jesus Christ. That stance is not only compatible with an effort to be fair in describing and evaluating others' beliefs in an attitude of respect for fellow human beings, but positively mandates it.
Unlike the Bible, which contains the writings of many authors spread over millenia, the Koran preserves the oral discourses of just one man, Mohammed, during his lifetime in seventh-century Arabia. So it has a single basic historical-cultural context, and reflects the theology and style of just one author. Moslems regard Mohammed as the last and ultimate prophet of God "Allah" is simply the Arabic word for God, cognate with the Hebrew "El" --and by "God," they mean the God of the ancient Near Eastern religious tradition that also underlies the Bible, the God who revealed Himself to Noah and Abraham.
This in itself doesn't mean that their beliefs perfectly comprehend Him --arguably, nobody perfectly comprehends Him-- but it does mean that "Allah" should not be viewed by Christians as some alien deity comparable to Baal or Molech. Mohammed's words were dictated to scribes; he was himself illiterate not a disgrace, in that time and place. Raised in a polytheistic environment, he had some personal contact with Jews, and mostly second-hand information about Christian beliefs, and he connected Jewish and Christian conceptions of God with the primitive monotheistic tradition of his Arab ancestors, but he obviously never read either the Old or New Testaments.
He viewed himself as a prophet called to uphold God's cause, and claimed Divine authority for his words. The content of the Koran itself is sermonic material; it lays down some laws, which reflect a fairly primitive tribal society, and touches incidentally on theology in places, but the overwhelming majority of the content is a pounding reinteration of the twin themes of demand for absolute loyalty and obedience to God and threats of judgment against the disobedient, expressed over and over with a high degree of repetitive language useful for memorization in a mainly oral culture and in what I found to be a turgid style.
For me, it was a chore to read, and I think it would be for most Occidental readers. Naturally, for Christian readers the obvious question here is the legitimacy of Mohammed's claim that this represents divinely inspired teaching. That this is not a claim to be rejected a priori is indicated by the fact that there are an increasing number of Moslems who accept Jesus as the Savior, and who see this as compatible with various views of Mohammed's prophetic role as legitimate.
See "Moslem Followers of Jesus? There is no hint here of the gospel of grace through faith on the basis of Christ's sacrifice, and not much hint of Divine compassion beyond pro forma statements that God is "compassionate and merciful" --though here He doesn't sound like it ; and the legislation allows things like slavery, polygamy and the subordination of women, and prescribes the death penalty much more liberally than we would.
The same, however, can be said of parts of the Old Testament though the Koranic command to cut off the hands of thieves and its encouragement of wife-beating goes beyond anything found in the Mosaic law. Those parts are set in a total context of Divine revelation that modifies or qualifies them; we accept them as Scripture, but if our sole understanding of God came from, say, the book of Obadiah, we'd have a severely mutilated picture.
Much of the content of the Koran, on the most charitable assessment, could be seen as primitive and incomplete, in the same sense as some of the Old Testament that we can now view through the lens of progressive revelation and of Divine accommodation to limited human understanding on the part of the people He had to work with; a parent, as Calvin pointed out, speaks baby talk to an infant. Though Mohammed lived in a time long after Christ, for all practical purposes his part of the world was a pre-Christian culture, and neither he nor his people had heard the gospel in anything like a coherent or understandable sense.
IMO, though, there are aspects of the Koran that resist such a charitable view. To be sure, the stress on God's oneness is an Old Testament theme that no New Testament believer would deny, either; and even the insistence that God does not beget can be taken as a refutation of a misunderstanding of Christian doctrine, much as James in his epistle rebuts a misunderstanding of Pauline theology, not the genuine article. God did not literally beget Jesus by sexual intercourse with Mary, in the manner of pagan gods siring children on human women, and no Christian believer would argue that He did.
But from a Christian standpoint, the Koranic insistence that Jesus was not really killed by his enemies, but was rescued by God, is incompatible with Divine revelation not to mention history. It stems from the conviction that God must always necessarily rescue and vindicate the righteous, in this world --which, experientially, is NOT true-- and from understandable ignorance of the vicarious role of Jesus' death.
Here again, Mohammed's lack of acquaintance with the New Testament was a serious liability --much as a lack of acquaintance with the Koran would be a liability to anyone making claims about Islam. That isn't, obviously, anything that he could have helped; he had the information that could realistically be available to him in his time and place. By all accounts, he was actively interested in obtaining verbal information about both Judaism and Christianity; he can't be faulted for inevitable gaps in what he could acquire that way. Finally and related to the latter the Koran in places clearly commands a Moslem theocracy as the form of human government, and calls for its forcible imposition on the world.
To be sure, not all Moslems are inclined to follow this to the letter. But this kind of Koranic teaching coupled with its death penalty provisions for blasphemy and apostasy certainly creates a built-in ratchet towards intolerance and religious violence, and provides religious justification for social policies which, no matter how constructive or mitigating they might have been in 7th-century tribal society, today more often create and perpetuate horrible injustice rather than mitigate it.
To be wisely aware of this is not the same thing as calling for persecution of peaceful Moslems. So in conclusion, my recommendation regarding the Koran is to read it, not burn it --but read it with a discerning critical faculty. View all 62 comments. God is Merciful..

The holy Quran is a book that everyone should read no matter the religion but it should be read in its original language, like most books that are translated it loses flavor when its not. The Arabic language when read has many different meanings and when translated it loses those,so u get one verse that means one thing when actually it has 3 or 4 different meanings does that make sense?
Having come from a family that doesnt speak nor understand proper arabic very well i studied the Quran slowly and got a Quran translator which is just as long as the Quran maybe longer translating very verse for me and helping me understand it in my own weird version of Arabic so to end my review i recommend you read The Quran in its original text and get a Quran translator preferable Al safee fe tafser il-Quran which is really known and respected by everyone Shelves: classics.
