Arabic Almanac

By Omar Jahangir

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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.

Tremendously useful app

This app is just was I was looking for. Flipping through a PDF copy of Hans Wehr on my phone can be quite cumbersome. The search function makes finding the definition you are looking for very simple. The text is clearly scanned from the book, but the writing is very clear and easy to read. The search function actually allows you to find a definition with the phone faster than you could with a book. I definitely recommend this app for all Hans Wehr users.

I was hesitant to give it a four star but I did it anyway for the usefulness of the book but my only complaint is I wish the developers would make the text more clear as the text looks like it was a copy of a copy

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

This App made me happier than any I've installed. I'm thrilled to be able to access the Hans Wehr dictionary on my phone, with a search function no less.
