  • About the Koran

    This is an electronic version of The Holy Qur'an, an English translation published in 1983 by Tahrike Tarsile Qur'an, Inc. Though attributed to M.H. Shakir, the translation has been shown to rely heavily on the translation of Maulana Muhammad Ali first published in 1917. The text was provided by the Online Book Initiative and subsequently marked up at the HTI in SGML. Like all the versions of this text derived from the Online Book Initiative, it is not free from errors and represents the text as published. We will strive to correct any transcription errors pointed out to us.
