World Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Inaugurates New Holy Quran Search Website
HolyQuran.io hosts advanced features to search through the text, translations and commentaries of the Holy Quran
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is pleased to announce that on 9 April 2021, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad inaugurated and launched a new website to assist in the study and research of the Holy Quran – HolyQuran.io.
His Holiness officially launched the website from the Mubarak Mosque in Islamabad, Tilford, after announcing its launch during his Friday Sermon.
The launch was followed by a silent prayer led by His Holiness in thanks to God Almighty.
Speaking about the launch during the Friday Sermon, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“The Al Islam website team has created the first version of a Holy Quran search website. The website ‘HolyQuran.io’ can be viewed independent from the Al Islam website. You can search any chapter, verse, word or topic in Arabic, English and Urdu through a new search engine. The search results can show translations produced by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, as well as those translated by others. With every verse you can view the commentary, topics, and related verses. Work is under way on further content and God willing, the next version will be ready by Jalsa Salana UK 2021.”
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad further stated:
“Similarly, a new and more aesthetically pleasing version of the website ReadQuran.app, which is available on the Al Islam website has been prepared which allows for the reading and listening of the Holy Quran. Along with English commentaries of the Holy Quran, it has notes of Tafsir-e-Saghir, word-by-word English translation, index of topics and several other features which would assist the regular study of the Holy Quran.”
Praying for the success of the new websites, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“We pray to Allah the Almighty that may this project fulfil its objective of spreading the beautiful teachings of the Holy Quran far and wide and that the members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community are also able to benefit from these resources.”
