Kader Abdolah

For the Dutchies amongst my readers who are equally interested in the Qu’ran, here’s a tip: Iran-born Dutch writer Kader Abdolah has translated the Qu’ran in Dutch. Althought there had been made five translations already, this one I can highly recommend. The love and feeling for language Kader Abdolah is famous for fills me with enthousiasm. Introducing every soera (”chapter”), Abdolah seemed to have written this book especially for Qu’ran-dummies like me.

Although this book is only availabe in Dutch, Abdolah has written some very interesting novels that has been translated in other languages as well, his most famous being The House of the Mosque. For more information about this writer, please click here.
