Publisher Comments:

This is the first translation of the Quran by an American woman. It is a universal and inclusive translation with the hope that Islam will be better understood in the West. She also challenges the use of the wowrd "to beat" in 4: 34 as meaning "to go away" which is how the Prophet of Islam understood the word as it has historically justified violence against and abuse of Muslim women. "This interpretation must change," she says, "and revert to the way the Prophet understood it."

I was very excited when I first heard about this book's publication. I have read a number of english interpretations of the Qur'an and I agree with the author and the publishers that they are a bit lacking. The language is obscure and uninviting. I do understand that the Qur'an is a very complex text and any version will be difficult to comprehend, but I found this text to be much more accessible. I also really appreciate the companion publications, such as the Arabic/English version and the Concordance of the Sublime Qur'an which details the authors methods of translation.
