Saalam Brothers and Sisters,
I am trying to learn the quran in english and I was told Yusuf ali's tranlsation is a very authentic one, but then I read this:
am extremely disappointed that all recent versions published after 9/11 have many changes in the translation and commentary, all made in the name of modernization and revision. But unfortunately these changes are in such key topics e.g. women dress code and usury that do not do justice with the open mindedness of the Quranic Arabic text......

So I dont really know which quran translation to get . I really wanted one that is accurate and not 'over translated' to a point where the meaning is changed. Im trying to find one with arabic and commentery all together.
Please could someone with more experience than me adivise me on what to do.
Would this be a better option:
This seems the best to me but I really dont know:
