Salam, everyone. I am a Sunni Hanafi in Pakistan.

In sh'Allah, I want to buy Quran tafsirs and increase my Islamic knowledge. 

Unfortunately, I am not proficient in Arabic and Urdu.

I want to read Quran tafsirs that are written or have been translated into English

Please suggest 2 or 3 most widely acclaimed Tafsirs/Exegesis each for Shias and Sunnis.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, All-Merciful, The Most Gracious
ٱللَّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ
O Allah, bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad, and hasten their alleviation

This book is the Tafsir book from Hubeali.com I read today about Al-Fatiha. It contains hadiths from Prophet Muhammed and Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام).



(It is reported) from Abu Abdullahasws: ‘Ibleesla shrieked four shrieks. First one was on the day when he (LA) was Cursed, and when he (LA) was cast down to the earth, and when Muhammad (SAAS) was Sent after an interval from the Rasoolsas, and when the ‘Mother of the Book’ (Umm Al-Kitaab) was Sent down’. 2

Wa alaikum as salam

The famous tafaseer of the Shia school such as tafseer al qummi, al tibyan and majma ul bayan are not available in English as far as I'm aware.

The few that are available are not necessarily the most prominent ones but might help you inshaAllah
