level 2 topic Koran

The standard Koran is arranged by length of chapter, not chronologically. The longest chapter is at the beginning and the shortest chapters are at the end. This makes it confusing and difficult to understand.

Mohammed is the key to the Koran. When his life is integrated into the verses, the context is restored. This is the way the Koran originally unfolded. It was recorded over the course of Mohammed’s life. When you weave Mohammed into the Koran, it becomes an epic story that ends with the triumph of Islam over all of Arabia.

Approximately half of the Koran is repetition. For instance, the story of Moses is told 39 times. AN ABRIDGED KORAN has been condensed by eliminating the repetitive verses. Now you can read the Koran and understand it.

AN ABRIDGED KORAN recreates the historical order of the Koran of Mohammed’s day. The first chapters start with Mohammed’s first recitation and the last chapters are those he recited before he died. Mohammed’s life gives the Koran clarity, meaning, and order.

AN ABRIDGED KORAN is identical to A SIMPLE KORAN except it has all of the repetition removed. Read AN ABRIDGED KORAN. It will change the way you see world events and the Islamic world.

The Islamic Trilogy—Koran, Sira, Hadith

Islam is a political system, a culture and a religion based upon the Koran, Sira (life of Mohammed) and Hadith (the Traditions). The Islamic Trilogy series integrates the three primary texts to reveal the entire Islamic political doctrine of the treatment of non-Muslims. The Trilogy is authoritative and fact-based. All content can be confirmed by the use of reference numbers in the primary source documents.
