The Koran The Koran
Translated by J.M. Rodwell
The Koran, the holy scripture of Islam, records Muhammed's oral teaching delivered between the years immediately preceding the Hegira in A.D. 622 and his death in A.D. 632. This well presented text restores the traditional ordering of the Suras, enabling the reader to trace the development of the Prophet's mind from the first flush of inspiration to his later roles of warrior, politician and founder of an empire.
