Holy Prophet Mohammad ﷺ, in his last sermons stressed on Quran being one of the two things to hold tightly, so we’d not go astray. Sadly, we were born to live in the times when our robotic routine doesn’t leave time for us to brush the dust off of the fancy “juzdaans” we respectfully cover the Holy book with, sit down, open it up and not just read the foreign language, rather make an effort to understand it too, even in Ramadan when we open Quran we are focused on increasing the counts of parahs we have gone through.
The idea is to stop to stop treating Quran just as a monument to be saved for our brides to walk underneath, or as a mannequin for our fancy Juzdaans to reside in, and start paying attention to the undiscovered information and knowledge waiting to be interpreted for our own guidance.
“This is a Blessed Book that We have revealed to you so that the wise may ponder over its Verses and seek direction and guidance.”
Born in a Muslim family, we have all had a molvi sahib or a grandparent teach us Quran in our childhood, followed by a grand celebration called “Aameen”. Once we finished it, some went a few steps ahead to learn Qira’at and a few went on to Hifz the holy book, but only a hand full of us tried understanding why the book sent over 1400 years ago was regarded as “The book of all times”, why prophet Muhammad ﷺ insisted on holding on to it, why was it promised to be preserved in original form and most importantly why it’s said to contain all the answers for those who seek. It says
“Verily, We have revealed to you the Book which contains your admonition. So do you not have sense?”
Quran is repeatedly inviting people to ponder over it and its verses and analyze its verses to find guidance as stated above. It is also discussing modern sciences, creation of universe, creation of man and other scientific topics. Like it says:
“So man should ponder from what substance he has been created.”
“He who created the heavenly spheres and the earth and this (universe) in between them in six periods. Then He settled Himself on the Throne is Most Kind. Ask of Him someone who has attained to His awareness.”
This application originated with the idea of studying, understanding and analyzing Quran. With this app, anyone can begin analyzing Quran’s verses and words to understand how the creator is talking to his creation through this great book. Internet, via its diversity and a vast range of everything-made-easy, has been a teacher many of us never had. From learning how to bake a simple pound cake to fixing /updating your phone’s software, everything can be found online just a tap away, even Quran. Keeping all this in mind, we have developed analyzequran.com, a new, complete and comprehensive web application, to make use of Quran easier and simpler in all the possible ways. This is a very user-friendly application, made to offer our people a chance to benefit more with the Quran.
Like all, this app also has translation of Quran in both, Urdu and English. We will soon be adding more translations in the app indifferent languages and also from different Islamic scholars, so the users may read the translation of their favorite scholar. It can be switched from one language to another by simply going to settings option.
This feature gives you the literal insight of the verse, and helps you understand what every word of the verse actually means and how is it getting translated to the mentioned translation. Arabic is a deep and vast language, many words of the Arabic when translated to other languages are not the natural equivalent of the word. Like, the word بصر and انظر both are translated same as ‘look/see’ by the translators, but both words are not naturally equivalent and have different context in Arabic language.
Similarly, the words ۡ سبيل , طريق , صراط are three different words but translated same as ‘way’, the words have similar meanings but in Arabic the actual words have got lot more to say then just ‘way’. And definitely, there should be great wisdom in selection of words in a verse, if Quran is the word of God.
This feature lets you ponder over the word mentioned, the selection of word in specific context of verse and the literal translation of it. So, one starts getting familiar with words of Arabic used in Quran with this feature.
Arabic words are generally based on a “root” which (mostly) uses three consonants to define the underlying meaning of the word. Like, طريق , طريقة, طارق all three words used in Quran are derived from the same root ط ر ق .
The app tells you the Arabic root of the word when the word is selected,this option allows one to further explore this root in Quran. So, when you tap the root, it brings out all the words that are derived from this root and shows how many times and in what verses these words are used in Quran.
With this feature, you can explore and analyze Quran’s content beyond limits. You can learn to understand in what context Quran is using a specific word by comparing different verses where the same word is used. You can bring out all the verses on a specific topic and try analyzing them, for e.g. if you want to get all verses regarding prayer just open the root in Quran Dictionary or open it from any verse where it is mentioned.
This would give you all the verses in Quran where this topic is discussed so you can study, read and share what Quran is saying.
Search anything in Quran, by simply writing the word in search bar.For e.g. write ‘Book’ in search and hit enter. This would bring out all the verses where word ‘Book’ is used in translation.
There are two ways to find the verses of Quran about your topic using AnalyzeQuran, 1. Search for the word in English and it will get the result from translation searching. Use Quran Dictionary: The other way to search anything in Quran is using Quran Dictionary. Just...read more
