This is the best way to access the Quran for those who know English but not Classical Arabic.   There are English Quran translation's by this author available but it is in this version that he explains his translations, even providing alternative translations and reasons for his choice. It is also an excellent way to learn nuances of Arabic from a master of both Arabic and English.

This book includes the Qur'an in English and Arabic along with a commentary. As translations go, I like this one. The Qur'an is often elliptical in its expression and this copy glosses in the elipses in parenthesis in the translation. There are also certain words that I often think are translated wrong in many editions, but as many as I have checked in this book they are correct. A lot of tears were poured into this work to get it right. I like the translation, and the commentary usually answers plausibly the questions I have.

Arabic, the most beautiful script in the world! And you get plenty of it here. The "actual" Qur'an is presented along with a translation that flows beautifully for easy reading. Lengthy notes on every page offer commentary. Overall a very good resource. The translation, however, leaves something to be desired in terms of faithfulness to the text. It is a very liberalized translation and the notes explain the Surahs anachronistically from a 21st Century Modernist perspective as if Muhammad could have ever meant some of the "meanings" The Meaning of the Holy Qur'an gives it. Not recommended for hardcore, in-depth study.
