Quran.com You can pick different translators but to to truly understand the book you need to know Arabic, also pay attention to the context, in order to gain a proper understanding of many verses in the Quran, it is important to understand and know the historic context of the revelations.

Thanks man.

I was hoping for a hardcover version as I try to avoid reading from computer screens as much as possible.

I don't know Arabic nor do I know the historic context but why does that matter? Isn't that what a translator does?

Still waiting for that pm.

Anyone else here know a good Koran/Qur'an English translation that can be bought in hardcover?

RE: The New Religion Thread
Funny you mention it sarge ever since my ilness/demonic opression I've been into God as well. Used to be an atheist but if there's demons there has to be a God right?

Rising Son is talking about the Annunaki. Even if they created us I still think there is an ultimate creator.

Cool man.

I don't believe in the Christian god. I believe in the hindu Brahmin. The idea being that God (the only conscious being) is currently sleeping and is dreaming as each of us. You are god as much as I am because when we "die" we will awake as Brahmin.

That's the short version.

However, I'm trying to get perspective on it all and I like to see things from many different angles.

I finished reading "The Upanishads" yesterday and it was fairly familiar to me since I already see things that way.

But I want to read all the major religious texts. Next is Muslim (Qur'an) then Buddhism and Tao.

I'm hoping after reading it all I will come to a much deeper understanding.

But yeah the Christian stuff is interesting. I think I'm trying to capture something that perhaps Christian symbols convey best.
