أنا آسف ، أنا لا أقرأ أو لا يتكلم اللغة العربية. وسوف تبذل جهدا لترجمة مع ترجمة جوجل. يرجى أن يكون فهم من هذا الحاجز.

I have the Yusuf Ali and Pickthall version in print and a version on CD that I bought in Chicago but I'm not sure who the translator is.

I also have Yusuf Ali & Pikthall in print version.

I prefer Yusuf Ali since it is more accessable.

I use Qu'ran explorer though which has a range of translations when I am looking up specific verses (or references for Hadith).
