How would you like to be able to understand the Quran in less than a YEAR?
Baqarah is a delightful and easy way to learn the Quranic language. You begin by memorising one aya a day from surah al-Baqarah and and swipe through flash cards to learn the meaning of each word in the aya. Since surah al-Baqarah contains up to 70% of the Quranic vocabulary, by memorising and understanding every single word, you have easily learned the 70% of the Quranic words.
• Memorise. In learning in a new language, you will need to memorise new vocabulary. What better way to learn the Quranic language than memorising the Quran itself. You start by memorising one aya a day of surah al-Baqarah.
• Flash Card. One you have memorised the aya, you'll swipe through flash cards to learn the meaning of each word in it. By understanding everything that you have memorised, in time you will be able to understand up to 70% of the Quran.
• Spaced Repetition. To reinforce your memorisation, we use a technique called space repetition. Spaced repetition is a way of hacking the brain in order to remember better. This is how it works: You memorise something and the app will set a schedule for when you will revise, a few times in a day. As you memorise it better, you will revise it less frequently in the future.

Ratings and Reviews
Had fun at first. Needs another update.
Alhamdulillah, a Qur’an app for the swiping age. I love the little features that make a huge difference in my retention - the fact that when memorizing the ayah, you can press and hold down to make sure you got everything right, the flashcards for each word, and the quizzes at the end.
I just have a few suggestions: keep each quiz for the current ayah only with the words you learned in that ayah, and develop a separate “review mode” where you can be quizzed on all of the words. When 50 words are in one quiz, it leads to 1) crashes and 2) confusion (for example, على and عليـ - one definition the app provides is “on” and the other is “(are) on,” and without the context of the full ayah, it’s hard to identify which one.
The app crashes frequently; sometimes in the middle of flashcard learning or in the quiz, causing you to start from the very beginning or skipping to the next level without fully completing the previous one.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
