I Recommend: Quran.com

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

The problem with Internet sources on Islam is that it may be hard to verify their authenticity. This complicates individual judgement on IslamĀ as well compromises the integrity of Islam. I am no expert on Islam but with what knowledge I have, I will do my best to offer good sources of information on the religion.

In order to understand Islam, the most obvious source of information is the Qur’an and a good online source is Quran.com. It is a complete upload of the entire book so if you can’t get your hands on a physical copy, this helps.

No registration and log-ins are required, allowing easy access as long as you are connected to the Internet.

You can choose the reciter of your preference if you would like to have a listen in Arabic. On top of English translations, there are those in other common languages as well. I can only stamp my approval on those in English and Malay so you will have to verify the accuracy of the other translations but it seems highly likely that the translations are rather accurate.

Other useful tools include transliteration, which helps you to figure out the pronunciation in Arabic, and quick-copy of the verse (in Arabic) you are interested in sharing or using by clicking on the ‘copy’ link below the tiny box that shows the chapter and verse number.

I actually experienced the former layout before the site revamped to its current state. I must say, I actually preferred the former layout. It was easy and convenient to have the tools on the left. However, I think the new layout is growing on me. It is simple, clean, and more organised.

Keep in mind that Internet Explorer does not support it well so use a different browser. Works perfectly with Google Chrome.

I hope you find the site easy to navigate and useful to you as I do.
