Do any of our Urdu speaking brothers know anything about the Urdu translation of the Qur'aan, published by the King Fahad printing plant, translated by Mulana Mahmood-ul-Hasan - tafseer by Shabeer Ahmad Uthmaanee? How is it? Is it a trustworthy translation? How is the tafseer?
Jazaakum Allaahu khayran.

Assalamoalaikum Brother the Urdu translation of Mehmood ul Hasan was published a long time ago, and he was a famous Deobandi scholar so as Shabeer Uthmani. It was banned when some of the Salafi Ulamas mentioned the mistakes in it like you even find Shirkiyyat and Taweel of Asma Was Sifaat of Allah in it as it is a well-known Deobandi Creed. e.g. even in the first chapter of Quran Surat-ul-Fatiha he explained the verse "001.005] You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help. He said that it is apparent from this verse that one can't ask for help other than Allah but if one ask help from any pious person(maqbol banda)awliyas etc as an intercessor between you and Allah thinking him a symbol for Allah's Mercy than there's no harm in it. (the famous shirkiya concept of waseelah)As long as you believe that the intercessor is not self sufficient as Allah but Allah granted him that powers. (It is a clear shikiyyah Aqeedah) So now the King Fahad's printing press publishes new Urdu translation of Moulana Muhammad Jonagari (r.a.) (Ahlulhadith) with brief commentry named "Tafseer Ehsan-ul-Bayan" by Sheikh Salah-ud-deen yusuf checked by Sheikh Waseeullah Abbasi and Dr.Luqman Salafi as stated in the preface by Sheikh Saleh Aal Sheikh. Before this it had published by Darusslam also. And this Tafseer comprised of famous Salafi Tafaseer like Tafseer Ibn Katheer, Fath-ul-Qadeer,Tabari, Qurtabi etc... and the Daeef narrations and Israeliyat were avoided only Sahih narrations included. Now-a-days this Tafseer is distributed free by Saudi Government..
