New Tilley Hat

Happy New Year! Can anyone recommend a Koran to read?

In honor of the Hebrew New Year of 5771 I've decided to read the Koran. A quick Google search got me to this Koran which looked good, having the text and line numbers.

But it's slow going: Too many unfamiliar (to me) words. Eg ghaib, which seems essential to understanding Islam.

Can any of my LJ Friends recommend a better online version with a good translation and hyperlinks and/or other contextual information?

I hope to finish up by Yom Kippur at the latest.
