    My fiancee' is interested in Islam but she finds my Qu'ran (Arabic and English translation) a little dense and hard to understand. I was wondering if anyone knew of a Qu'ran that had the strict English translation and then a simpler English translation. I know the Bible has study books that has the strict English and then a simpler English translation. Is there a Qu'ran like that? Thank you in advance.

    Muslims will tell you that you can't read the Qu'ran in anything but Arabic because it is not "translatable".

    Screw em!
