Firstly, thank you very much for your interest to help us develop Quran.com and it's projects. We are excited to work with you!
We are a team of developers, designers, product managers and thinkers working on Quran.com on a volunteer basis. Alhamdulilah we have been blessed to work for some great companies in Silicon Valley, Toronto and UAE - and we feel that this is the least we can do to help our ummah move forward in learning and studying their religion. Working on Quran.com is very gratifying and may Allah reward us all (and reward you) for our efforts.
We have a number of projects all hosted on Github. You can find them all here. But to outline them:
- Quran.com frontend (written in Nodejs & Reacts) and API (written in Ruby on Rails)
- Quran Android
- Quran iOS
- Quran Audio Segments
Typically we use Github issues as the source for what to work on next, what's coming up and what bugs exist that need to be solved. For example https://github.com/quran/quran.com-frontend/issues contains bugs, things we need help with, and great for starters.
Should you have any questions or want to contact maintainers, just write an issue! We will get back to you as soon as we can, inshallah.
Thanks for reading! Looking forward to seeing you commit some code!

Hello. I am a Word Press Designer So I cannot actually help you in JS scripting. But I have a Font feature request for quran.com.
Alhamdulillah! You guys have worked really nice.for development of this project.As you are expert developers of this project so you can do this easily with the help of Almighty Allah.
So the request is that I want to have Noori Nastaleeq font installed in the URDU & Farsi translation text.As it is the default font for Urdu publications in Pakistan and Farsi in Iran.It is very beautiful and very easy to read.Because Pakistani population cannot read trade arabic or simple unicode font on computers with much ease. So you must add Nastaleeq to Urdu Translation.
Using Google Chrome's Inspect Element tool and changing the fontfamily from running CSS style made it look very beautiful Here is a ScreenShot.
I have only inserted Jameel Noori Nastaleeq because it loaded Nastaleeq Font installed on my PC. For being able to do this through server side (as not all of users have urdu fonts installed and it is of large size so it cannot be given through browser) it needs some web fonts. Go through CSS of these sites which use Nastaleeq and You will be able to achieve the goal .
Urdupoint uses this CSS to achieve server side font load.
Give it a read and You will be able to do this.

As Salam Alakium,
I would like to make a recurring donation of $5.00 a month every month for the foreseeable future...but I can't find a recurring donation button on your website Quran.com
Wikipedia has a monthly donation button..
Please help, I believe more brothers and sisters would like to invest continuously (sadaqah jariyah) rather then just a one time payment.
And use a "set it and forget it" approach rather then going to the website month after month to donate..
Jazak Allah kher,
Alsalam Alykum, I really love this web site, however what i noticed is that its missing the tafseer, it will be helpful if it had the tafseer arabic, english, and other languages. I preferred the older edition of this which included the tafseer, however; it only had Aljallaleen, and the shorten one only. thus please look into these if possible, to make this website a one stop for all the Quran studies.
I'm a software developer, I have an idea for Islamic answering project that needs an access to sources from Quran and Sunnah through APIs. I went to Quran-API project on github, I found it really great but I don't want to clone all the database I just want to access it online. Is there an end-point server where you deployed the API and the database to, that I can connect to e.g. (api.quran.com/
Thank you, may Allah put this on Mizan of Hasanat of yours
I am a student, I have the ultimate test of my academy
I make the application of Islamic, and I need the API of Quran.com
how to get Quran API ?
As salam o alikum Brothers,
MashaAllah you have done great job, however i have found a Translation mistake in Surah Nuh verse 23 in which the idol name is mentioned which is "Yauq" and it shows in urdu translation "Yaqoub"
kindly have it corrected as soon as possible..jazakAllah
Thanks for you & your team hardwork to make this happen.
I would suggest that when we playing audio, there's an option to disable word-by-word highlights because it sometimes doesn't syncronize with the audio & it's a little confusing when reading.
thanks brothers about site
when i put this url quran.com/52/1
the result is 5/21 see
Please be informed that the translation of the verse https://quran.com/8/19 has been supported by a interpretive word "disbelievers" in the very beginning of the verse which is an interpretation of the translators (Sahih International, Muhsin Khan) and is incorrect interpretation by them because
1. Allah swt addresses believers in the previous verses and hence it must have been believers to who Allah is addressing, not the so-interpreted [disbielivers] and He swt would not change the direction of address without specifying the recipient in the statement (Believer, disbeliever, etc)
2. The same recipient has been given confirmation of 'victory' which can't be interpreted for disbelievers.
3. Because Sahih International could not justify it's interpretive word "[disbelievers]" in its translation, it has wrongly translated the Arabic word 'AL Fathu' to the english word 'defeat' where it should actually have been translated to 'Victory'.

ا سلام و عليكم
In surat Nisaa 4 : 34 you translate one Word with "strike" like a punch or similar and that is false, people Who reads this translate they belive than the man can punch his wife...

Hi, i am trying to access quran.com API. But when i try to access the 'get-verse', it doesn't works https://quran.api-docs.io/v3/verses/get-verse . It doesn't return any JSON, but html like so :
The page you were looking for doesn't exist.
You may have mistyped the address or the page may have moved.
If you are the application owner check the logs for more information.
Assalam-o-alaikum to all my brothers and sisters,
This is the most required job you guys are doing for the Muslim Ummah, may Allah help you to continue in the right direction, Aameen.
I would like to reflect on the new version, "Settings" and "Urdu Translation". You have recently changed the settings and now I can go directly to the required verse to continue reading were I left in my last session. this is very helpful and time saving change.
Next you changed the previous Urdu translator by Moulana Modudi's translation of Quran. He was a great scholar I admire his work and skills but he translated the quranic verses like word by word. This approach doesn't match with the sentence structures in Urdu language. That makes it difficult to understand Quran for Urdu speakers, specially the new generation or younger ones.
I think the previous Urdu translation was good enough to understand the meanings of the verses.
Jazak Allah and my salute to your team.
Every English translation has it as unbelievers, are they all wrong?
Any translation for that matter can neither translate to "disbelievers" nor "believers" because these words are not mentioned in that verse at that position. However, the word under square brackets "[disbelievers]" that is used in this verse by the work of sahih-international for example is not a translation but an extra word as a 'spoon-feeding' to the reader which as per the common understanding should be "[believers]" rather than "[disbelievers]" because of the reasons mentioned in my initial comment. Or it could have been interpreted as "[Qureysh]" like in the translation of Pickthall.
Regarding your question about spoon-feeding of the extra word "[disbelievers]" by all the interpreters, I would say that because this word is not mentioned at that position of quranic verse (the verse 8:19) itself but spoon-fed by the interpreter in to the translation, it is very much possible that it could be incorrect even by all translators. So, interpretation is prone to mistakes, be it by less knowledgeable person like me or by the translators who relatively are more knowledgeable. Had it been only the allegedly incorrect interpretation or extra-word, I should not have raised the question on it but because the sahih international also wrongly translated the word in the verse "Fathu" to English word "defeat" which is incorrect/antonym, it should actually have been translated to one of the correct English meanings "victory". And I think the reason sahih international has incorrectly translated the word "Fathu" to English word "defeat" is because they had interpreted "[disbelievers]" to be the recipients in the beginning of the verse and they could not have used the correct meaning "victory" for disbelievers in this context.
I hope that this project will be a project for me. Do not serve the Qur'an and send it to people in the right way. Thank You

I am very excited to join this project. I am a developer in java, php and js. I interested in the web services and semantic web. Do you want or have already implemented a semantic web approach?
Fath shouldn't necessarily mean 'Victory' for all subject types.
Like the same word 'Jaza' narrates different meaning for different subjects.
i.e bounty for believers & punishment for the disbelievers.
In 5:52, the word Fath used for the Munafiqeen implies 'Punishment' from Allah (awj)
In 8:19, it may very well imply the same i.e. 'Punishment' imminent (or simply say, Defeat)
