    I was wondering how many people on this forum actually own a hard copy of the Quran (Arabic)?

    And how many people on this forum own a hardy copy of the translation of the Quran. And if you do what translation?

    Also how many people on this forum own a hard copy of the Bible. And if you do what translation?

    Also how many people on this forum own any Hindu scriptures?

    Hard copy of the Qur'an in Arabic. A gorgeous piece of work handwritten/calligraphed by Hashim al-Baghdadi and dedicated to my granddad.

    That looks beautiful.

    I've got an Abdel Haleem and a Pickthall translation of the Qur'an, and I've got a KJV, NIV and a Gideon's bible. No other religious text.

    I own yousef alis translation (I think that's his name) with the arabic side by side which I'm now using to learn Classical Arabic. We are Christians so we own many bible, various translations, as well as the original Greek and hebrew. As for Hinduism we have quite a lot of hidu scriptures including quite a few Puranas, the Vedas (all in translation) and of course about a dozen gitas, my personal favourite being parupadas version, as its got a word by word break down of the Sanskrit. As for Judaism, I bought recently art scrolls Torah with rashis commentary and targum onkelos, and I have italmud on my iPad which has all of the talmud (getting in book form would cost about two thousand pounds)

    I own several copies of the Quran in its original language. In addition, English and Urdu translations. I also have individual copies of the chapters.

    Plenty of Islamic books and hadiths etc. as well.

    I do not currently have any copies of the Bible or Hindu scriptures. I'm going to be getting a King James Bible soon.

    I have The Meaning of the Glorious Koran by Pickthall. I also have KJV and NIV copies of the bible, and translations of the Bhagavad Gita, Rigveda, Dhammapada, Guru Granth Sahib, the Zohar, the Kitab-I-Aqdas, the Tao Te Ching, and Confucius' Analects. I also have quite a lot of philosophy, and ancient literature and mythology.

    I have a Rainbow Good News Bible, because they gave us them at school. It's bloody terrifying - all rainbows and unicorns on the cover, and then all these stories of rape and dismemberment inside...I figured they'd have edited it for kids, but nope!

    I don't own any other religious texts.

    No hard copy I'm afraid, just a Kindle copy, along with the Bible and the Torah. I have very little space for real books.

    I purchased one last year and have enjoyed reading it. Even if you're not a Muslim it's a very well-written book and I would recommend it, especially to atheists - it's very important to know the religion you oppose as well as those who follow it.

    I had the exact opposite experience from you. I really didn't enjoy reading it and found it rather arduous. I imagine I will get neg repped for this, but that is just my experience of reading it.
