As-salamu ´alaykum,
I recommend the translation done by Abdul Haqqi and Aisha Bewley, insha'Allah.

al-Salamu 'Aleykum,

So far the simplest and closest one to the original Arabic in my opinion is Sahih International.

Asalamu Alaikum,
While this is an excellent translation, I do believe it to be out of print. The Majestic Qur'an put out by the Nawawi Foundation is very good, but is about 60 bucks. The Oxford one is actually one of the better ones I've seen using modern English. The best in English, in my opinion (for what it's worth) would be the Koran Interpreted translated by A.J. Arberry who has an excellent grasp of the English language.

Unfortunately, this Qur'an has a lot of modernist interpolations and ideas- otherwise the language is very good.

I very much like Saheeh International, Aisha Bewley's and MAS Abdel Haleem's- but Abdel Haleem's is also modernistic in interpolations in the footnotes. It's still the best reading one.

Wa ´alaykum as-salam,
I know people who bought it quite recently. So it is still out there insha'Allah.

You know, I've heard multiple people accuse Abdel Haleem of modernist/reformist interpolations, but have never actually seen example of that being done.

Could you please mention some of the ayat or page numbers where he does this? I've read his translation for some of the ayaat where those kinds of things may be expected, but couldn't find anything.

I would like to know if the English translation by Muhammad Farooq-i-Azam Malik of the Institute of Islamic Knowledge, Houston, Texas, is reliable?
