i have seen many friends talking without knowing about other religion. know what is there. there is no point in criticizing and saying bad about others..

I personally wanted a version which was written in a flowing style, with relatively straightforward prose (i.e. no “Thee” and “Thou”) but still retained a scriptural characteristic. If this is the sort of translation you are looking for then this edition fits the criteria.
This edition does contain footnotes to aid understanding; however the authors who provided these tend to wander into the territory of homily. This can become a little frustrating when you are seeking explanation of what a specific name, place of event is. That aside, you do not need much historic, religious or referential knowledge to read the Quran and gain a decent understanding.
The translation reads fluidly and avoids awkward turns of phrase. It took me little over a week to read, though I did put aside a little more reading time than normal to finish it in this time frame – though at around 77,000 word long is relatively short for a book.
A passing familiarity with the Bible (mainly Old Testament) is useful, though the list of characters referred to from that book is narrow and they keep reappearing in the text.
Altogether an easily readable translation of the Quran .
I'm not a Muslim myself but I enjoy knowing and learning about different cultures.
If you're not into it, it's gonna be a slog.
