We have embarked on our quest to read the Qur'an. On the sidebar are some introductory links.
For January, please read The Opening and The Cow.
I am going to produce some quizzes and a synopsis for each reading. I will have January's synopsis and quiz up shortly.
This will be fun (that is how it is intended anyway) and a learning experience for me. Any suggestions are more than welcome!
There is an on-line translation by Yusuf Ali to which you can link from the sidebar. This translation and other great resources can be found at Islamicity.
You can also find other on-line translations at this site maintained by the University of Southern California.
Also, a couple of different folks have recommended Michael Sells' Approaching the Qur'an. I have purchased the translation by Tarif Khalidi and am off to the bookstore to check out some others. I would guess that it is good to have more than one translation handy.
You can request a free copy of the Qur'an here.
