Study and Revision’s Qur'an content contains a rhyming, contextualised version of the Qur'an in simple English, compiled by a secondary school Headteacher and checked thoroughly by a traditional Islamic scholar. It is a compilation of hadeeth, Qur’an, and Qur’anic cross-reference. It is not a translation as the Qur’an can not be translated.
It is designed to offer young Muslims a way of accessing the Qur'an alongside their traditional core school subjects, in a format similar to the best examples of online education.
This version is easy to listen to and access, encouraging Muslims to focus on verses' meanings, history and explanations. There are 2 reader voices to choose from. One if more dramatic and the other more sombre.
This explanation of the Qur'an is colour coded so readers know where information is drawn from. Whether it is directly something from the Qur'an, a cross-reference from another part of the Qur'an or explanations offered in the highly renowned scholarly works of Ibn Abass and Jalalayn, as well as the hadeeth collections.
Adding the hadeeth and Qur’anic cross reference has made this twice the size of traditional works referred to as translations, but colour coding has been used to show you what comes from the Qur’an in that specific verse (black text), what comes from other parts of the Qur’an to support the verse (red text) and what comes from hadeeth and tafsir (blue text).
This app is an introduction to understanding the Qur’an and the context of some of the verses, it is not meant as a replacement for studying the utterly unique, mesmerising Arabic of the Qu’ran itself. Think of this as an introduction and thus a step along the way to properly understanding and appreciating the Qur’an in Arabic.
Overall this app is part of www.quranstudyandrevision.com where students are encouraged to learn their core school subjects alongside this simple to understand introduction to the Qur’an. For too long school studies and Islamic studies have functioned on an entirely different plane. We believe that just as a student should have good access to quality, clear and concise school subject tutorials material to better understand English maths and science, the Qur’an should be just as accessible in order to help students get a good grounding in Allah’s words and Final Revelation.
We hope it allows you to have a strong introductory understanding of the Qur’an and is part of your daily use and understanding.
If you feel a better fit for a verse or word is applicable PLEASE do take the time to write to us and let us know as this will be updated every few months to ensure it is encompassing specialist knowledge.
Please keep our team in your duas and with Allah is every success.
