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.
