I am wondering if y'all have preferred translations of the Quran: preferred for spiritual insight/clarity, for poetic language, powerful language, academic integrity, and so on. I'd like to find two good translations so that I can tackle reading the text. Here is my starting list: The Gracious Quran (trans. by Hammad) This is probably my current highest-ranked for clarity/personal experience. The Study Quran (trans. and commentary by Nasr et al.) Second choice for translation, first for general use b/c of the commentary and breadth of scholarship. Oxford World Classics Qur'an (trans. by Haleem) Not a translation, but this seems a worthy study to have on hand: The Cambridge Companion to the Quran (edited by McAuliffe) Also, if a version of the Hadith seems outstanding, I would be glad to know about it. Thank you for your thoughts & help!
