'Across the language barrier Dawood captures the thunder and poetry of the original' The Times

The Koran is universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel nearly fourteen hundred years ago. Its 114 chapters, or surahs, recount the narratives central to Muslim belief, and together they form one of the world's most influential prophetic works and a literary masterpiece in its own right. But, above all, the Koran provides the rules of conduct that remain fundamental to the Muslim faith today: prayer, fasting, almsgiving, pilgrimage to Mecca and absolute faith in God and His apostle.

This is a book that so far I understand is based a lot on the Old Testament. I understand why the Muslims now have a problem with the Christianity that is spread world wide and that is they believe in only one God and they think and believe that Jesus was a prophet and not the son of God. I like what they have to say in this book it teaches me that the real God is vengeful. Like I have put on the internet we as Americans are to soft on people who have committed crimes such as murder rape and child molestation. In the past people l9ike that where sentenced to death now as the United States is spending more money on the prison system then they do on education because people like those who I just mentioned are kept alive , I don't like what those who are soft hearted are doing to our country they prisons intentionally turn the air conditioning real low driving the electric bill up in prisons and making the tax payers pay for it. ? these people committed crimes why are they giving such things like internet and cable television in which the tax payers have to pay for why isn't that money put toward other things that the people that don't commit crimes need and want in the society that do not commit crimes. Why is it that our leader is able to discriminate openly on national television when it comes to Muslims and Hispanics which is a violation of our own US Constitution. Who in their right mind would want a person like that representing us with nations all over the world . Trump is a wealth arrogant person that thinks because he has money that he can run his mouth and not have people file law suits against him. I think his advisors better get him under control before groups start filing Civil rights law suits against him and the leaders of our nation. It is bad enough our own public paid servants have let crimes happen through the internet as well as in person by letting people use other persons personnel information to work under which is a crime and they are paid by the tax payer to not let this happen in my mind that is a crime and an act of terrorism against private citizens and the nation as a whole the IRS is a federal government law enforcement agency as well as the Social Security office. To me these people have been in their positions why to long and are not looking are their own country's interest and are probably lining their pockets with stolen money obtained through the internet. Our own government is committing treason and terroristic acts because our federal government paid public servants are also federal law enforcement paid by the citizens and are letting federal and international crimes to be done through the internet and not stopping it trying to turn our country over to the New World Order by bankrupting our nation. They have allowed all citizens from every nation to have identity theft and graud and embezzlement in all forma and are not enforcing the laws that they take a oath to uphold. Letting people empty their bank accounts so citizens can not afford a lawyer.
