Ever wanted to read the Qur’an?
Ever wanted to read the Qur’an? Well here’s your chance to get a copy free! Taking a page from the Evangelical handbook --- a Islamic organization is giving away free English “interpretations” of the Qur’an --- of course there is no such thing as a “translation” into English --- you can only properly read it in Arabic.

According to the Council on American-Islamic Relations who is offering the Qur’ans:
False and uninformed accusations have been leveled against the Qur’an for some time. But now, this initiative places the sacred text directly in the hands of the American people and encourages all people of conscience to discover the truth about Islam. Explore the Qur’an allows the holy book to speak for itself and educate people of other faith traditions about the universal teachings of Islam.
I sure know how it feels to have false information passed about your Holy Scriptures --- so I can relate. While I don’t think the Qur’an is inspired or Holy in a true sense --- what better way to understand Muslims then taking a look at their Book?
However, pick up a copy of the Real Deal first --- if you haven't already.
