Comment:Very informative article... and I would conclude that its better to learn Arabic to understand Quran... if not, then I think that Yusuf Ali and Pickthall are the best Translations!

Comment:Assalam o aleikum. I found this article to be very informative and it has given me an idea of the history of the English renderings of the translation of the Qur'aan.
If I am correct this article was written in 1987. I would strongly encourage interested readers to have a look at two more recent translations/commentaries:
1) 'Tafsir-e-Usmani' (by Maulana Shabbir Ahmad Usmani rehmatullah aleihi), the English version of the much read and great Urdu work (perhaps the English might not be of an extraordinary standard - but it is still worth it) (2 volumes).
2) 'Ma'ariful-Quraan' (by Mufti Muhammad Shafi rehmatullah aleihi), the English version of the monumental Urdu work by the most respected Mufti. This work is almost completed, I believe only one out of the total of eight is left (7 volumes).
JazakAllah, Assalam o aleikum.

Comment:Very informative! I agree with the other posts that the Hilali & Khan translation is very "liberal" in inserting their obvious opinions into the text itself and their bias is clearly apparent. I would've have appreciated some thoughts on the Thomas Cleary translation.

Comment:An exceptionally informative article, making the reader realise that not every translation of the Quran is reliable and care should be taken when reading a translation of the the Quran regardless of whether the author is a Muslim or not. It has strengthened my desire to learn Arabic fluently.

|Something to Ask...|
|O Allah, I beg to You the good which Your Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) begged of You; and I seek refuge in You from the evil where from Your Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) sought refuge. You are the One from Whom help is sought and Your is the responsibility to communicate (the truth). There is no power or strength except with Allah the Exalted, the Great.|
