A Very Concerned Reader: Best translation of the Qur'an? It is for sure not Yusuf Ali's translation

in response to reader comment: Dhimmi No More! Shocking that this translation is the number one on top searches and a bit more of my experience

A Very Concerned Reader:

Yusuf Ali's translation of the Qur'an is also really bad. It is very tendentious.

The best Arabic to English translation of the Qur'an is Mohamed Mahmoud Ghali's translation. He is not apologetic and his translation is mostly not contaminated by the Sira and al-Ahadith. This translation is not liked by Islamists.
