    Authentic translations.

    Which translations are considered authentic by certain groups and/or sects? Also, which tafseer-ul-Quran are considered authentic by different groups and/or sects? Which translation/tafseer do you read?

    Also, is the translation of the Quran by 'Syed Shabir Ahmad' considered authentic?



      popular ones are (perhaps in Sunnis):
      Pickthall, Yusuf Ali, Irving (English)

      Maulana Moududi, Taqi Usmani and more (Urdu)

      I don't konw about Shias most popular translation.

      May Allah SWT guide us all towards right and help us follow the right


        The Khalifites(19ers),
        Mutazalities/Qur'nites and the Submiters use the translations by Ghulaam Ahmad Parweiz and Rashid Khalifah's translation. These people also approve of Pickthal's translation as being 'ok'.

        Ikhwan ul-Muslimoon use Abu a'la Maududis' translation.

        As far as i know 'Ahlus Sunnah' use Yusuf Ali's translation.

        'Ahlus sunnah' and 'Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah' use The Noble Quraan by Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan. The Ulamaa have said that this is the most authentic translation.

        Allahu Alim

        May Allah(swt) guide us all. Ameen.

        The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:
        "Whoever sets out on a path to seek knowledge, Allaah will make easy his path to Paradise."
