The Qur'an - Translated with a New Introduction - A.J. Droge
A.J. Droge [+]
A. J. Droge is the translator of The Qur’an: A New Annotated Translation (Equinox, 2013), and the author of Homer or Moses? Early Christian Interpretations of the History of Culture and A Noble Death: Suicide and Martyrdom among Christians and Jews in Antiquity (with J.D. Tabor).
This sūra opens with a declaration of God’s creative power, followed by a condemnation of idolatry. The certainty of judgment and the authenticity of the Qur’ān are also stressed. A final section contains stories about Noah and Moses (Q10.71–103). It receives its title from the reference to ‘Jonah’s people’ at Q10.98.
