The Quran (Koran), 1st translation

by Anonymous

What does one mean by '1st version'?
There is only ONE Quran. No versions or stuff like that.

People, if you really want to read the Quran get the Arabic version, if you dont understand Arabic, then get translations by well-known islamic scholars. I say so because the usage of Arabic language in the Quran is far from the regular spoken Arabic, and the fact that Arabic grammar is the most complex grammar, makes it a little hard to correctly comprehend and translate it. It thus becomes vital to have some background of Islam, before trying to write a translation of this holy book.
