"Ibn Warraq's new collection is charming, witty, erudite, diverse, intellectually magnificent, and is definitely the 'go-to' work for all questions about what the Koran really says and what Koranic critics have said that it says. The opening essay...is an original and autobiographical piece titled 'On Becoming English.' Here, Ibn Warraq reveals himself...as a serious and lifelong lover of British and European novels, paintings, poems, philosophical tracts, history, nature, architecture, and street life. Throughout, IBn Warraq reveals himself as a great lover of freedom, an opponent of totalitarianism and of fakery of all kinds, especially that wrought by the very influential Edward Said, here, you will find Ibn Warraq's prepared remarks when he debated Tariq Ramadan in a widely heralded public debate (Warraq won), his views on the Danish cartoon controversy-death threats to dissidents-and on whether Islam can or cannot be reformed. This deeply informative volume should be assigned reading in universities, both here and abroad."-Phyllis Chesler, PHD Author of Woman's Inhumanity to Woman and The Death of Feminism "Ibn Warraq has done a signal service for all wishing to understand Islam and Muslims, their apologists and their critics, by collecting some of his most learned, literate, and compelling writings in a single sparkling volume."-Daniel Pipes Director, Middle East Forum In this wide-ranging collection of insightful, controversial, and often witty essays, Ibn Warraq-the renowned author of Why I Am Not a Muslim-has created a representative selection of his best work on the Koran and various problems posed by the interaction of Islam with the West. The title comes from his now classic article, originally published in the London Guardian, on textual studies of the Koran that suggest, contrary to a longstanding Muslim belief about the afterlife, a harem of beautiful virgins may not be waiting for the faithful make departed in heaven. This expansive collection includes articles that consider the totalitarian nature of contemporary political Islam and explore the potential for an "Islamic Reformation"; Koranic criticism excerpted from his books; and the best of Warraq's journalism, including a critique of reputed muslim reformer Tariq Ramadan, a defense of Western culture, an article about the Danish cartoons that provoked widespread Muslim outrage, and even a commentary on the naive politics of heavy metal musicians. For the many readers of his books who have long wondered about his background, the pseudonymous Warraq includes a personal sketch about his upbringing.

The Routledge Introduction to Qur’ānic Arabic is an innovative, text-based, language course designed for students interested in acquiring a foundation in Qur’ānic and Classical Arabic. Focused on enhancing comprehension and vocabulary acquisition, the book contains 40 lessons designed to be covered in about 40 hours of classroom instruction. Starting with the shorter sūras of the Qur’ān, such as al-Fatiha and those of the Juz’ ‘Amma, it utilizes their recurring vocabulary and grammatical structures to build a stable linguistic foundation for learners before moving on to more challenging and longer sūras such as Yāsīn, Maryam and Yūsuf. Although the book is primarily designed for classroom use, the vocabulary and structures of the short sūras, the accompanying audio recordings, and the activities found throughout the book will also be helpful for independent learners. The only prerequisite is knowledge of the Arabic writing system. The audio material, which is available on the Routledge website, helps learners improve their pronunciation of individual sounds and develop their skills to syllabify Arabic words and phrases correctly in order to approximate that of native speakers. Also available on the website are answer keys to exercises and transcriptions of the audio material. Written by an experienced teacher, The Routledge Introduction to Qur’ānic Arabic is an essential guide for instructors, students and anyone interested in developing their knowledge of Qur’ānic Arabic.

The Koran, as N. J. Dawood states, is 'not only one of the most influential books of prophetic literature but also a literary masterpiece in its own right'. Universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as revealed to Mohammed by the Angel Gabriel nearly fourteen hundred years ago, the Koran still provides the rules of conduct fundamental to the Arab way of life. N. J. Dawood's masterly translation, first published in the mid-1950s and now completely revised in the light of a life-long study of the language and style of the Koran, presents the English reader with a clear, fluent and authoritative rendering, while fully reflecting the characteristic flavour and rhythm of the original. The present edition follows the original sequence of the Koranic suras, and is provided with a comprehensive index.
