• My preferred Quran translation is The Quran as it Explains Itself, by Dr.Quran as It Explains Itself Shabbir Ahmed.  Although not technically a word for word translation, rather a contextual understanding, this work is unique in that it utilizes Quraish (Prophet Muhammad’s dialect) Arabic definitions, reason, and leaves out dubious historical references common in other works.  For hard copy, please visit: Our Beacon. Also available in QXP PDF and for QXP Kindle
