Abstract Compilation on Islam and the Qur'an, and parallel translation of The Qur'an as translated by George Sale (1877) and J. M. Rodwell (1876).
Notes George Sale's version of the Qur'án I typed from the original print versions (from the 1800's and early 1900's - different editions had different materials which I discovered at different stages, so I used several editions to include all of the items). Rodwell's version of the Qur'án was based on a Project Gutenberg online text to which I added a Suráh that had been missed (at the time) and some other corrections and notes. -B.Z.

Other online versions are at (PDF of 1877 edition) and (html version no footnotes).
