About this Site

While searching for Qur'anic resources on the Internet I found a text file that contained the complete translation of the Qur'an. I had worked on Unix shell scripts in the past so decided to create a website from this source.

The original text file was acquired from Islam101.com. This source had format inconsistencies so I reformatted the file and inserted the contents in the database using PERL scripts.

Audio is directly linked to IslamiCity.com.

Subject index was acquired from USC MSA website.

For those interested in linking to this site, the verses and chapters are arranged in a simple and consistent format.
