The translation attributed to Mohammed Habib Shakir is a plagiarism: see [1], [2], and corresponding WP's article, w:Mohammed Habib Shakir. Yann (talk) 12:04, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

It is an established, undeniable fact that the so-called Shakir translation is a verbatim copy of Maulana Muhammad Ali’s first edition, with alterations of the kind mentioned above. Moreover, it is most probable that M.H. Shakir is merely a fictitious name, and the name of the Egyptian judge Shakir has no connection with this translation. [3]
