                                             English Translations of the Quran

In this section, we are providing 8 English translations of the Quran. Muslims regard ONLY the original Arabic Quran as a holy scripture. Translations of the Quran are done by human translators; therefore, Muslims do not consider any translation of the Quran as a holy scripture.

The translations were done by:

1. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali, 1893-1987 and Muhammad Muhsin Khan, 1926-?

2. Maulana Muhammad Ali, 1876-1951  (He is Qadiani/ Ahmadi)

3. Marmaduke William Muhammad Pickthall, 1875-1936

4. Rashad Khalifa, 1935-1990  (He claimed to be a Messenger)

5. Muhammad Sarwar

6. Mohamedali Habib Shakir, 1904-1959

7. Sher Ali,  ?-1947

8. Abdullah Yusuf Ali, 1872-1953

Note: Most of these translators have Pakistani/Indian background, except for Rashad Khalifa who is Egyptian and Marmaduke Pickthall who is a British convert to Islam.
