    Their is one more important site, that also offers free Quran mp3s and if you want to recite the Quran.

    The site is www.Quranonline.net.

    Its offers everything that is Islamic. From Speechs, to Quran, and even exegesis.

    For those who are intersted in Islam exegesis, their this site also its http://www.tafsir.com/, however it mostly the works of the famous Syrian Islamic scholar known as Ibn Kathir. Its in English, so non-Arabic speakers can read and understand it

    To those who want to understand more about Islam and the inner meanings of the Quran.

    Also this is great site to those who want to understand the revelation known as Hadiths, which means the narratives or loosely the scriptures, they are held in importance after the Quran and deal with mostly with ethical and philosphical issues through an Islamic lens.

    To those who are intersted here is its the whole collection of the Hadiths

    Default The Meaning of the Glorious Koran

    This is the one I have in my iPod. I know very little about Islam so this could be a translation scoffed at by Islamic scholars for all I know, but I liked what I heard.

    translated by Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall (18751936)

    The Koran (Quran) is regarded by Muslims as the word of God (Allah) as revealed to the prophet Muhammad. It is divided into 114 chapters (surahs), arranged roughly by length. This version, The Meaning of the Glorious Koran, is a widely used English translation of the Koran by a Muslim Englishman. Many Muslims, however, including Pickthall, believe that true translations of the Koran from the original Arabic are impossible, and see translations into other languages only as useful interpretations.

    The Pickthall translation is a good translation.

    The pickthal translation is in fact very well done. He was the first one to translate the Quran from Arabic into English.

    However their other translations such as Yusuf Ali, he is also one of the best ranking translators of the Quran into the English translation.

    I have the Muhammad Asad translation. It is one of the best translations out there that I have seen. It is both intelligent with excellent commentary and easily understood by both scholars and lay readers alike. The Pickthall translation and Yusuf Ali translations are also good, but a bit archaic. The same could be said of the Asad translation, but all three seem to be some of the best because they are not new age revisions, nor presenting a false image of Islam despite their use of older English. I have heard good things about other translations, but cannot vouch for their contents.

    How is the Quran generally translated? Is the Arabic translated literally, "word for word," or do they try to convey the idea more than the wording? Are translation influenced by the translators' theological views, or are the good translations relatively "neutral"?

    I own the Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation, which is a good starting point for beginners, as it has the copious commentary which is required for a first-time reader. However the Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation is considered less literal than other translations, and although it is a somewhat legitimate criticism, he does attempt to preserve the original meaning quite well.

    Ultimately, one should learn Arabic to understand the original message of the Quran. In translation of any text there are naturally the biases and preferences of the translator.

    Also, allow me to contribute another link to this list:

    Quran Transliteration

    The site is currently in development but contains audio of each individual ayat (verse), translation, and as well a word-by-word translation in some places.
