It is useful to read the commentary and translation of the Holy Quran without any doubt, each Muslim should do it. However, if a person is not regular Alim he should read the translation and commentary of the Holy Quran under the supervision of some Alim as well as he should not rely on his reason in deriving the meaning from the translation. He should try to understand it in the light of authentic commentaries of the Holy Quran. One can go astray if he uses his own reason and become misguided. Some authentic Urdu commentaries of the Holy Quran include “Bayan al-Quran” by Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (RA), “Maariful Quran”, by Hadhrat Maulana Mufti Muhammad Shafi Sahib (RA) and “Hidayat al-Quran” by Hadhrat Maulana Mufti Saeed Ahmad Sahib Palanpuri, and among the plain translation of the Holy Quran “Asan Tarjuma Quran” by Maulana Mufti Muhammad Taqi Sahib is good translation.
