I would like to know what is the most reliable English translation of the Quran and who is the translator?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.


The most authentic translation in English, according to our estimation, is the translation of:

A. Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan which is published by Dar-us-Salaam publications, Riyadh, K.S.A.

B. The translation prepared by Al-Muntada Al-Islami, published by Saheeh International – Riyadh.

Allaah Knows best.
