Approaching the Quran presents brilliant translations of the short, hymnic chapters, or suras, associated with the first revelations to the Prophet Muhammad. These early suras contain some of the most powerful, prophetic, and revelatory passages in religious history, offering the vision of a meaningful and just life that anchors the faith of one fifth of the world's inhabitants. In addition to these translations, Michael Sells provides an introduction to the Qur'an, commentaries on the suras, a glossary of technical terms, and discussions of the auditory nature and gender aspects of the Arabic text.
