The birthday of the Prophet, salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

I recorded these drummers on the archipelago of Socotra last March. Unfortunately, my contact there has gone MIA, but I could use some help translating the Arabic lyrics of this Islamic Mawlid chant. Can you help?

Can anyone recommend a superlative translation, or perhaps even better, a great paraphrase of The Koran?

The Koran. I read it long ago. I found it confusing, odd, hard to understand, in dire need of unpacking. I'd like to try reading it again. Can anyone recommend a superlative translation, or perhaps even better, a great paraphrase. Or at the very least one with decent annotations. I'm not averse to a version that does intelligent re-arranging of the sequence, as I recall chapters on cows following stuff on love. There are a number of current translations so pointers to informed reviews of them would be welcomed too.
