inmates' use and Muslim inmates are in desperate need of
spiritually-uplifting materials.As Wisconsin's
newspaper noted: "If Racine County Jail inmates need a
Bible, they aren't likely to face the prospect of not having
enough to go around.
But if you are a Muslim
inmate, you're kind of out of luck when it comes to
obtaining a Quran."

Muhammad Asad translation offered through CAIR's "Explore
the Quran" campaign is produced by the Book Foundation.
This beautiful new edition designed by Ahmed Moustafa

translation and commentary is widely considered among the
best in the English language.
