Illustrated with plates from the Mamluk Sultan Baybars Quran (1304) held in the British Library.From the forward: The aim of this work is to present to English readers what Muslims the world over hold to be the meaning of the words of the Koran, and the nature of that Book, in not unworthy language and concisely, with a view to the requirements of English Muslims.

It may be reasonably claimed that no Holy Scripture can be fairly presented by one who disbelieves its inspiration and its message, and this is the first English translation of the Koran by an Englishman who is a Muslim. The Book is here rendered almost literally and every effort has been made to choose befitting language. But the result is not the Glorious Koran, that inimitable symphony, the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy.

It is only an attempt to present the meaning of the Koran - and peradventure something of the charm - in English. It can never take the place of the Koran in Arabic, nor is it meant to do so.
