  1. Excellent choice of quran translation in my opinion as it is the most fluid and considering the way th e arabic text is structured the choice of getting rid of verses and spacing of the text makes for an easier reading experience.

    Perhaps though it would be good to mention that professor Haleem has also written a companion volume which explores various themes of the quran titled ‘understanding the quran: themes and styles”


  2. I used to read his brother, Henry, in The Times looong before I had ever heard of Dr Timothy Winter.

    I only recently learned that they were brothers. Both very smart men.

    Shk Abdul Hakim Murad always strikes me as a man of integrity. Hope to tick some of those books off on that list.
