This event took on place Wednesday, 15 June 2011 in SOAS, University of London.

The broadcaster, writer and critic Ziauddin Sardar spoke from his book, Reading the Qur'an and was in conversation with Merryl Davies & Amina Yaqin followed by Q&A. A deeply spiritual endeavour, Zia's book is in dialogue with the many translations of the Qur'an in English engaging with the work of a range of translators from Marmaduke Pickthall to Abdel Haleem. He spoke of the relevance of his book for a contemporary Muslim audience who access the Qur'an in many different languages and wish to understand how to approach it in a modern context.
