Arabic Almanac is a digital version of the famous Hans Wehr dictionary. You can search through the dictionary by using the root letter of the word and the app will display the corresponding page from the Hans Wehr dictionary.

This app was developed to aid students of the Arabic Language in their noble pursuit. The app will remove the need of carrying around a bulky dictionary and replace it with the convenience of your smartphone. Now you have access to all the same information, but at the comfort of your fingertips.

The dictionary can be searched using an Arabic keyboard, or if you do not have an Arabic keyboard the dictionary can be searched using Roman (English) letters which have an Arabic equivalent.

This app could not have been made without the immense contribution from E.Taal and U.Iqbal. I pray that Allah (swt) reward them and their families for their contribution to this app.

Please also remember this developer and his family in your duas.

Well Done!

I have been using Hans Wehr - the pdf version - on my phone for many years. The problem was that it took a while to load and I had to add my own bookmarks. This does away with all that and makes my pdf file obsolete.

Kudos to Omar the developer... may you receive the rewards you seek! Barik Allahu Feek
