Pearl of Wisdom

Piety is the master of action. He who does not have piety to prevent him from an act of disobedience to Allah Almighty when left with it, Allah will not care about any of his other actions. This means that it [piety] is fear of Allah, both in secret and in public, economizing both in poverty and wealth, and fairness both in [times of] contentment and discontentment.'

Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa [sawa]
Kanz al-'Ummal, no. 7299

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.
