As a Muslim, I've noticed the same when it comes to the Quran. People think that they've read the Quran when in fact a large of its beauty is in the structure of the Arabic text.

There are many reasons to read the Quran aside from aesthetics. But I wholeheartedly agree.

I would say that is like the difference between the KJV and other translations of the bible. KJV is just plain wrong a lot of the time but the writing is very good.

Uh...no, it's like the difference between the original Greek/Hebrew and the translations.
