Wasallam alykum.

I think, may be I am wrong, the above mentioned url provided by you is worng. However, Please read the followings, which, I think, will be very helpful for your and others;

A complete, and fully detailed Scripture

To believe in the Quran, one must uphold six prime convictions:

FIRST
The Quran is the word of God.

SECOND
The Quran is perfect with no contradictions.

THIRD
The Quran is comprehensible and with no ambiguity.

FOURTH
That the Quran is straightforward with no crookedness.

FIFTH
The Quran is complete.

SIXTH
The Quran is fully detailed, and it encompasses all matters.


All Muslims will certainly testify to the first condition, that the Quran is the word of God. It is in connection to the other five conditions that they will have lots of ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ ! Sadly the great majority of them will fall short on some or all of these five conditions. Let us consider these six conditions in more detail.

FIRST
The Quran is the word of God

God tells us in the Quran that a physical proof has been given to us to assert beyond any doubt that the book is God given, and not the work of any human being:
6:155-157
“This (Quran) too is a blessed scripture that we have revealed; you shall follow it and lead a righteous life, that you may attain mercy.
Now you can no longer say, "The scripture was sent down to two groups before us (Jews and Christians), and we were unaware of their teachings."
Nor can you say, "If only a scripture could come down to us, we would be better guided than they. " NOW THERE HAS COME TO YOU A ‘BAYENAH’ (CLEAR PROOF) from your Lord and a beacon, and a mercy. Now, who is more evil than one who rejects these proofs from God, and disregards them? We will commit those who disregard our proofs to the worst retribution for their heedlessness.”




SECOND
The Quran is perfect and
with no contradictions

“A.L.R. This is a book whose verses have been perfected” 11:1
What this means is that no Quranic verse contradicts or invalidates another. However, a great number of Muslim interpreters have shown their failure to uphold this truth. Through a false concept which they have devised, and which they call the ‘Al Nasekh’ (abrogator) and ‘Al Mansoukh’ (abrogated), they claim that some Quranic verses annul and invalidate other verses.

THIRD
The Quran is clear and
comprehensible

“A.L.R. These are the signs of the clear book.” 12:1
”We have made it (the Quran) easy to understand and in your own tongue (language) may you take heed.” 44:58

Although God confirms that the Quran is clear and easy to understand, as in the above verses, yet the same corrupt interpreters who advocate the 'abrogation lie' will tell you that the Quran is difficult to understand, and that nobody is qualified to interpret it except their likes! What nonsense! They even go to the extent of prohibiting its interpretation by anyone who does not possess a degree from one of their accepted Islamic academies. Often, the case is that their interpretations are far more ambiguous than what they claim the Quran to be!

They argue that since the Quran is ambiguous there is a justified need for the ’hadith’. For them, the ‘hadith’ is necessary to explain the puzzles of the Quran!
Generally speaking the Quran contains five types of verses:

1- Law giving:
These are the verses that include all the rituals, the prohibitions, and the laws of God.

2 - Warning:
These are the verses that warn against disobeying God. These verses usually include an assigned punishment.

3- Narrative:
Like the verses that relate the stories of previous prophets....etc.

4.-Informative:
These can also be narrative of previous people or could also be scientifically informative (e.g. verses that relate to the creation of the universe, geology or embryology ...etc).
5-Reflective:
Like the verses that speak of matters related to the creation of the universe, or those that contain parables.....etc.

It is the first two types of verses that we will be held accountable to on judgment day. Thus no one will be thrown into hell for not knowing that the number of heavens is seven as in (Sura 2, verse 29), or for not knowing that God supported Moses with nine miracles as in (Sura 17, verse 101), or that the tribe of Saleh was called Thamoud as in (Sura 11, verse 61). On the other hand, we will all be held accountable if we should give false testimony, deceive orphans of their money or associate any name with the Name of God.

The Quran was not only revealed for the intellectuals or the scholars, but also for the unlearned and simple folk who may not be as clever. For that specific reason, and because God is the Most Fair, He deliberately made sure that these law giving verses in particular, and by which we will be held accountable to, are very clear and straightforward.

God distinguishes between the clear straightforward verses (the law giving in particular) and between other verses, which may interpreted in more than one sense:
“He sent down to you this scripture, containing authoritative verses, which constitute the essence of the scripture, as well as multiple-meaning or allegorical verses. Those who harbor doubts in their hearts will pursue the multiple-meaning verses to create confusion, and to extricate a certain meaning. None knows the true meaning thereof except GOD and those well founded in knowledge. They say, "We believe in this-all of it comes from our Lord." Only those who possess intelligence will take heed.” 3:7
Moreover, it is because God's justice and fairness that the law giving verses are made very clear and straightforward. Thus no injustices will be inflicted on anyone. This is made quite clear in the Quran in numerous verses such as :
“God does not inflict an atom’s weight of injustice.” 4:40
An example of the law giving verses that are quite straightforward is the verse that specifies the steps of ablution:
“O you who believe, when you observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), you shall wash your faces, wash your arms to the elbows, wipe your heads and wash your feet to the ankles.” 5:6
This simple order from God is put in such simple and direct words that it can hardly be expressed in simpler or more direct words.
The corrupted interpreters will tell you that, on your own, it is impossible for you to understand the Quran ! They will decipher the book for you ! By saying that, they again contradict the Quran, which clearly states that it is God who will teach the wisdom of the Quran.
“The Most Gracious, The Teacher of the Quran.” 55:1
“Once We recite it, you shall follow such a Quran. Then it is We who will explain it.” 75:18-19
This God bestows on the pure in heart who accept God alone as their Lord and the Quran alone as their source of guidance:
“We place shields over their hearts to prevent them from understanding it (the Quran), and deafness in their ears. And if you commemorate God in the Quran alone, they run away in aversion.” 17:46


FOURTH
The Quran is straightforward and without crookedness

"An Arabic Quran, without ANY CROOKEDNESS, that they may take heed" 39:28
The interpreters who constantly twist God's words and claim that they mean something other than the obvious and straightforward meaning, are guilty of disclaiming this fourth attribute of the Quran. The examples to that run in the hundreds. These are presented in the section of (Misinterpreted verses). For now, this is one of the classic examples of such corruption:

1- God decreed that Hajj may be observed in the known months (the 4 Sacred months) (2:197) ....
"Hajj is (in) the well known months. Whoever 'farada' (sets out to observe) Hajj 'feehinna' (THEREIN) shall refrain from sexual intercourse, misconduct and arguments throughout Hajj."
It is very clear from these Quranic words that God has decreed four whole months for the purpose of Hajj and not the first 10 days of the Islamic month of Zu Al-Hijja!
The Arabic words (Mann farada FEEHINNA al-Hajj) or (whoever sets out to OBSERVE Hajj THEREIN) are self indicative. The word 'farada' which means to observe or execute, comes from the word 'fard' which means a religious obligation. Thus the word 'farada' means to actually execute the obligation (Hajj). The word (THEREIN) refers to the four months. Together, these two words (observe) and (therein) confirm that God has decreed for us that may observe Hajj ANYTIME during the four months.

However, the twisted retarded bearded fabricators have come up with the most ridiculous excuse to twist the content of this Quranic law. In an attempt to over-rule the Quranic law and uphold their hadith and sunna, they have claimed that this verse speaks of the time 14 centuries ago when the journey of Hajj on camel and donkey backs took months to complete !!! They thus claim that this verse speaks of the intention of Hajj and not the actual observation of Hajj. In other words, people can prepare for their donkey and camel rides and start their journey anytime during the 4 months !!!!

Any human being with any degree of sense will immediately see the absurdity of this ridiculous interpretation:
1- Do these morons not realise that the Quranic law is directed to all people and to all times till the end of time, and not only to those who traveled on donkeys and camels 14 centuries ago? Have they restricted the law and guidance of this verse to the donkey/camel riders who lived 14 centuries ago?
2- Do these morons not see God's deliberate use of the word 'Farada' (to observe) in this verse? Do they not see the words 'Feehin al-hajj' which means (whoever OBSERVES the Hajj THEREIN) ? God did not say (whoever starts his journey therein)! the words (observe) and (therein) constitute God's clear and straightforward decree that hajj may be OBSERVED in these months ..... and not that the donkey journey may be started during these months .......
Sadly, these morons get away with such corrupt interpretation because the majority of people are too lazy to verify Quranic truth for themselves and in stead rely on the scholars thinking that those with beards, baggy clothes and worry beads are the legitimate custodians of the truth!

May we always remember that God proclaimed that the Quran is straightforward and without crookedness. Therefore, if God says that Hajj may be OBSERVED during the four months, then He means just that. God does not say (observe therein) and means (start the donkey ride)!! God does not say one thing and mean another! The reader is free to believe God or believe the twisted interpreters!

FIFTH
The word of God is complete in the Quran.

The Quran categorically states that the Word of God is complete in the Quran.
“The Word of your Lord is complete in truth and in justice.” 6:115
The claim of the pro-hadith writers that God revealed to His prophet words or teachings outside of the Quran (what they call hadith Qudsi) is in clear violation off this verse. It is also in violation of 17:73 and 69:43-47 where God very clearly warns the prophet not to ever claim that he received and revelations from God other than the Quran:

17:73-75
“They almost diverted you from the revelations we have given you. They wanted you to fabricate something else, in order to consider you a friend.
If it were not that we strengthened you, you almost leaned towards them just a little bit.
Had you done that, we would have doubled the retribution for you in this life, and after death, and you would have found no one to help you against us.”
69:43-47
“(This Quran) A revelation from the Lord of the universe. Had he uttered any other teachings. We would have punished him. We would have stopped the revelations to him. None of you could have helped him.”

Throughout the Quran, we are told that the only revelation received by Muhammad from God was the Quran (see 4:105, 5:48, 6:19, 6:92, 6:155, 29:47, 16:89, 39:2, 76:23).

SIXTH
The Quran is fully detailed.

The following verses confirm that the Quran is fully detailed and that it incorporates all matters :

"We did not leave anything out of this book.” 6:38
”Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed?” 6:114

”The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.” 6:115

”This is not fabricated ‘hadith’; this (Quran) confirms all previous scriptures, provides the details of everything, and is a guidance and mercy for those who believe.” 12:111

”We have revealed to you this book to provide explanations for everything, and guidance and mercy and good news for the submitters.” 16:89

In spite of the very clear words : “fully detailed”, “details of everything” and “explanations for everything” the corrupted interpreters will claim that the Quran does not cover the details !!!! Sadly, they claim that the Quran has only mentioned the major outlines of the religion while as the details of everyday rituals are only to be found in the Sunna!
These corrupted beliefs only go to expose these people’s ignorance of the Quran. God has proclaimed that the Quran is perfect, fully detailed and complete.
To conclude, belief in the Quran means belief in all of the above six convictions, and not only the belief that the Quran is the word of God. Consequently, all those who believe that the Quran does not include all the details of the religion or those who believe that the Quran is ambiguous .... etc .... , do not really believe the words of God with regards to the six characteristics of the book.

I didn't want to open a new thread for such a simple question so I'll ask here.

There are many many English translations of Qur'an so which Modern English translation of the Qur'an is the best?

I've Pickthall's translation, I like it very much but it's not in Modern English. I'm fed up of Thou, Thine, Thy etc. type of words.
