Reading the Quran in Hebrew

The recently published fifth translation of the Quran into Hebrew is also the first one executed by a Muslim believer.

A new version of the Quran in Hebrew has just been added to the nation’s bookshelves, bringing the total number of translations into Hebrew to five. “The Quran in Other Words,” is the name of the latest translation of the holy text into Hebrew. Unlike the previous four translations, which were translated by Jews, this entire project was done by Muslims.

While the anticipated audience for the book is Israeli, the project’s initiator and publisher is Jordanian. The translation was published and released by Bayanat, an independent center for the study of Islam located in Amman.
