The Koran interpreted ( Book )
67 editions published between 1953 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 2,129 libraries worldwide
Intending this translation for a wide audience, Arberry selected about one-sixth of the Koran's contents for translation. In his introduction he surveys reactions of European translators and scholars to the Koran in the first half of the twentieth century. Arberry briefly discusses the arrangement of the Koran in Arabic and in translation. He cites limitations of the Arabic writing system contemporary to Mohammed to explain the Koran's early existence in oral form, and he discusses the literary style of the text. He provides rhythm and stress pattern maps to illustrate the poetical/mechanical form of the Koran. Arberry translates each selected surah completely and attempted to choose those which he believed were particularly important to Muslims, emotionally or historically.

Aspects of Islamic civilization, as depicted in the original texts by A. J Arberry ( Book )
25 editions published between 1964 and 2008 in English and held by 1,221 libraries worldwide
The present volume is not intended as a competitor with Brockelmann and Hitti, Gibb and von Grunebaum, Rosenthal and Lewis, Levi-Provençal and Spuler and Gabrieli-to name but a few of the brilliant historians whose writings have done so much to recover and reinterpret the record. Its scope is at once more modest and, in a certain way, more fundamental. This book is a series of documents illustrating the development of Islamic civilization, texts translated from the languages in which they were originally composed by famous protagonists of that culture. The intention is to present a panorama of Muslim life and thought and achievement as depicted from within. The translations, a considerable part of which has not been published hitherto, are all the work of a single scholar and represent the gleanings of more than thirty years of assiduous reading. They are meant to throw light on the literary, intellectual and religious movements within Islam, as well as illuminating something of the politics and the sociology, ranging from the origins in the sixth century down to the present day. It should of course be confessed that they constitute the merest fragments of literatures preserved in overwhelming abundance, exceeding many times what has survived from ancient Greece and Rome, a repertory of many tens of thousands of volumes, the majority still in manuscript, not a few of immense length. The passages chosen, however, have been taken from the most highly esteemed and authoritative works; and the attempt has been made to construct a balanced and rounded picture. -- from Introduction (p. -10).

My verse resembles the bread of Egyptnight passes over it, and you cannot eat it any more. Devour it the moment it is fresh, before the dust settles upon it. Its place is the warm climate of the heart; in this world it dies of cold. Like a fish it quivered for an instant on dry land, another moment and you see it is cold. Even if you eat it imagining it is fresh, it is necessary to conjure up many images. What you drink is really your own imagination; it is no old tale, my good man. Jalal al-Din Rumi (120773), legendary Persian Muslim poet, theologian, and mystic, wrote poems acclaimed throu.
