Assalamu alaikum.

The English version we have now in 16 volumes was translated from Urdu. Which one do you have in Pakistan. You will be surprised that a Jew confirmed to me that it is the best translation of the holy qur'an in English language.

Assalamu alaikum.

There is a documentary on the Life of Muhammad Rasulullah 'The Message" by late Mustapha Akkad. The 2 hour documentary could be available in some Islamic Bookshops in America.
