We got one two years ago and added it to our collection. Apparently Muhammad Asad's translation and commentary is considered one of the most influential Quranic translations. Asad dedicated it to "People who think," which makes it seem extra fitting as an addition to the library shelves.
It does appear that CAIR is not without controversy, but I felt comfortable adding it. I just got another one today, though, so that'll probably go to the booksale, unless someone here wants it.

The Seaside Public Library recently received an unsolicited copy of The Message of the Qur'an "translated and explained by Muhammad Asad."

This donation was sent from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  

Depending upon the source, CAIR has been described as either a hate group or a bonafide educational institution.

Our Holy Koran gets "disappeared" on a regular basis.

Is The Message of the Qur'an an item we want to put on our shelf?

Have any Oregon libraries added this to their collection?

Thanks in advance,
