Muhammed Abdel Haleem
Hay Festival 2005
The Qur'an, believed by Muslims to be the word of God, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammed 1400 years ago. It is the supreme authority in Islam and the living source of all Islamic teaching. The eminent translator introduces his wok on the most admired contemporary version, which dispels some common misconceptions about Islam, particularly the relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims and brings the style into the modern idiom.
