Sometimes understanding the historical perspective of a book, the mindset of the author, the social setting in which the book was written, or any of a number of factors can help in getting the most out of a book when we read it. This Topic is a place to post comments that would be useful to know before beginning to read the book. Sometimes knowing what to look for in a book before you read it allows you to get more out of it. Of course, it is us to each of us to, as we read, decide for ourselves whether or not the advance info we have gotten on a book is truthful and helpful, or unwarranted bias.

A new Topic will be opened for each chapter (Sura) in the Qur'an. Please put comments that you want to make while reading a given chapter (sura) in the appropriate Topic.

Here is a link to the version of the translated Qur'an that I bought: The Qur'an

I don't think that it matters which version you get. As a matter of fact, it might be helpful if different people had different versions/translations.
