[The Heifer  62]

[Monotheism  1-4]
In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.

Please note that inspiration and miracles are two different words with different meanings.. Inspiration is indirect communication from Allah to his chosen ones whereas Miracles are direct communication from Allah. The Prophet Saw received direct communication from Allah in the form of the Quran, a living miracle. Please refer the original meaning of the word wahyu ie direct communication from Allah rather than ilham/inspiration from Allah. Quran is a miracle ie direct communication from Allah to the Prophet Saw. Two different words but with an important distinction ie direct communication from Allah - wahyu/the word and the other ilham/inspiration. Please be so kind as to amend this so that the error is not perpetuated ad continuum.

About the author

God is the Supreme Ruler of the Heavens and the Earth. He is the Originator of all things, and the Sustainer of all beings. He is the Sublime Creator of all the worlds, the Most Dignified, the Almighty, the Merciful. God is the First and the Last, the Hidden and the Obvious, the Loving and the Forgiving, the Living and the Immortal. He feeds and He is never fed.

God communicates with humanity. It is He who revealed the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Quran. These Divine Books contain guidance, light, mercy, and healing. Prophet Muhammad is the last of the Prophets. He received the Quran from God, through inspiration.

The Quran was translated into many languages, and many English translations of the Quran exist today. The translation by Talal Itani is in plain English, and is pure and very accurate.

Talal Itani studied the Quran over a period of 15 years. He is an electronics engineer, religion researcher, and writer. His translation of the Quran is clear, easy to read, and highly faithful to the Arabic original.

ClearQuran publishes the Quran in multiple formats, including websites, Apps, eBooks, videos, and print.
