Koran Translations

I'm planning on reading the Koran soon, and I'm looking for good candidates for a translation to choose.The most important thing to me is that it's easy to read.  I'd rather not trudge through archaic language.It would be a nice bonus, although not essential, if there were notes on context and domain knowledge that I lack (not apologetics).  I've never had much exposure to any Muslim culture, I'm not a historian, and this will be largely new material to me.  No doubt there will be references…See More

Hi SNM. I see I am using the same avatar as you.

Let me know if you want me to change mine. I haven't been here long; maybe the IPU is common, I don't know! I could find another something to stick in there--usually I'm pretty lazy about changing things like that, and I picked this one up a while back and use it all over now.

Anyway, hello, nice to meet you.

Welcome to A|N.

I would encourage you to put a bit in the "about me" section. I will help us get to know you and help to strengthen community.
(as I wrote that it felt like church, sorry)
