Assalamu alaikum,I just wanted to share that the Noble Quran is indeed outstanding for a new convert. The background information and detail is quite helpful. Allahu Akbar!Brother KM

Yeah, the Noble Quran (aka Muhsin Khan translation), and the Sahih International translations are the two best. The Noble Qur'an has a lot of parenthesis, explaining words and concepts in detail for a great comprehensive understanding, while Sahih International minimizes the parenthesis, so although it might not explain as fully, it's a smoother read. Either one is great, Insha-Allah.
Wassalamu Alaykum wa Rahmat Allahi wa Barakatu
