Pearl of Wisdom

Do not be among those who hope for the Hereafter without acting ... admiring the righteous people and yet not acting like them, and despising the sinners whilst he is one of them ... he fears for others worse chastisement than what he himself deserves for his sin, and for himself hopes for greater [reward] than his actions deserve ... When he acts he falls short of the action, and when he asks something, he exaggerates ... so he is presumptuous in his speech though performing little action.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Ibid. Saying 150

Question : #407 Category: Holy Qur'an
Subject: Difference of K and Q of K-Quran
Question: AA, what would be the difference in the meaning of the word Quran spelt with K and Q. As KORAN and as QURAN?Thank you.
Answer: All spelling is a matter of convention; there is no such thing as a correct spelling.

In English, the Arabic /q/ and /k/ are both adequately signaled by English K. In German the spelling is still Koran, and in French they prefer Coran. In archaic English the preferred term was apparently Alcoran, based on Arabic al-qur'aan the Koran, occasionally leading to the solecism the Alcoran.
