Perhaps I am biased because this is the first Qur'an I ever read (I have read more than this as of now though) I have to say this version is my favorite. Abdullah Yusuf Ali has really captured the beauty of the Qur'an in the English language. Although no translation will ever do justice to the original Arabic, I have to say that this really makes one go in awe at the beauty and majesty of the Qur'an. The language is clearly written, and made so that it appears to be ancient (written with thees and thou etc.) For anyone interested in Islam and looking for fun while reading, I suggest this version of the Noble Qur'an. I give it a 5 out of 5

This is a new approach in tafsir as far as I can see. It is a good one for non-arabic speaking students. This volume is the first of sixteen volume series. It is mainly introduction. This volume has no tafsir in it but if you continue to other volumes it starts in Volume Two. Author takes ayats in groups, provides English translation with arabic text next to it than he follows with a sort of dictionary where some key and speculative Arabic words are explained and their various meanings are described according to different interpreters, than comes a section where the general subject in those selected group of ayats are described and than author goes into his tafsir of those ayats. He refers to old teachers, Tabari, Qurtubi, Ibn Keasir. Time to time where necessary he refers extensively to old and new testament where the subjects are common. It is a sunni Tafsir so for people of other sects there are clearly disputed interpretations. I found in many locations opinions or statements that I could not get the same conclusion but that is why there are so many interpretations.Over all I think it is agood one and I am happy to have it.

Yusuf Ali's translation of the Holy Qur'an touched me deeply. The message from the Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him, is so holy and so pure, I am truly amazed at the gift that he brought for humanity. Anyone searching for the truth about himself and his heart will be moved and inspired through this reading.

This is the revised 1995 editon of Ali's 1938 original. I see that the previous reviewer was highly critical of this fine ebook edition because of Microsoft Reader, which after trying for a year I now refuse to use because it is so slow and does not have the navigational flexibility or robust features of Adobe's eBook Reader. I purchased the Adobe eBook edition and it's not only fast and thoroughly cross-linked/hyperlinked throughout, but the text is easy to read. My Adobe eBook edition is very fast indeed. My two gripes are with the Barnes & Noble Digital group who disabled both the print/copy and find functions of the text. I try to avoid e-books that do not allow the user to print them; it just seems to defeat any advantage to owning an ebook. (One can 'look' at it, but not much else.) I do recommend this copy of the Quran, though, because Ali's work has not only stood the test of time, but continues to be updated in English with minor changes. Be aware that the translation reads very much like 18th century English prose, which is filled with outdated terms such as thou, thee, art, hast, verily, forth, etc. It's not a hindrance to most readers, but one should be aware of it before purchase.

This Quran is supposed to have English and Arabic side by side. It does not!

A wonderous translation of the Holy Qur'an sent from Allah(swt). This translation may not be 100% precise but it serves as a splendid form of understanding the word of our Lord, our Creater for those which Arabic is not their native tongue. He has created us and to him we shall return for he is the Final Destination. AMEEN

Me personly i think you should only read the Quran by Abdullah Yusuf Ali because this is one of the ones that are acually right,i am a muslim and alot of the Qurans were created by americans and so far every one was wrong ,sorry,people think that arabs are these bad people that just kill because we want but acually its not we are regular people we might have a different skin color,or might not practice the same religion as others but we are still people i mean we have hearts and brains ,right!

Recommended for those who are looking for English translation only, without its Arabic format which is absolutely necessary for recitation.

This English rendition of the Quran by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, published by Barnes and Noble in arrangement with Tahrike Tarsile Qur'an, Inc.(@2000), is based on the print edition which appeared originally around 1938 in Lahore (now Pakistan). Innumerable subsequent editions, both English alone and with commentary and original Arabic text have appeared since. It is a standard version in wide distribution throughout the world. Technically, this MS-Reader e-book version is clear and easy to read. It is marred, however, by being so slow as to render the table of contents utterly useless. 'Turning' the pages one by one proceeds smoothly. Because the table of contents which lists the Surah's, or chapters, and should function as a linking mechanism to the 114 Surahs, really does not function, one cannot use this version as a reference resource. This is unfortunate and disappointing. That's why I purchased it. But, it costs only $4.95. So who can complain too strongly?
