Muhammad Farooq-i-Azam Malik, "English Translation of the meaning of Al-Qur'an, The Guidance for Mankind", The Institute of Islamic Knowledge, P. O. Box 8307, Houston, TX 77288-8307. ISBN 0-911119-80-9.

This is a recently published translation and a good one. The Institute of Islamic Knowledge gives it away for free, may God accept their good deed and reward them for it.

My only criticism of this translation is that it leaves some words untranslated although the obvious translation is reasonably good. A perfect example is the translation of رب to "Lord". Brother Malik transliterates the word instead, i.e., Rabb, as he doesn't feel that the word "lord" fully conveys the meaning of the Arabic word رب.
