Al-Quran Explorer is a program that allows its users to read and understand the Quran comprehensively and quickly. This reference guide was created to help people interested in the teachings and history of the Quran dissect meaning from its often-difficult passages and hard-to-decipher meanings and interpretations.

Within the Al-Quran Explorer package, users will find a variety of materials. First and foremost, it has the Al-Quran text in its entirety. In addition, users will find tafsir and translations of the text. Within any given verse, users will have the option to read the verse and also have access to the translations and tafsir of the verse. This makes understanding and reading the Quran easier than ever before.

These tools make the software ideal for anyone interested in the Quran, though attorneys, judges, scholars, authors, professors, religious leaders and students will find it particularly applicable.

Additionally, users have the option to sort the verses in several different ways. They can be sorted by chapters (or Surah), parts (or Juzu'), and subjects (or Maudhu'). This makes it easy for users to find exactly what it is they are looking for, or they can simply browse through the teachings randomly at will. To find that particular bit of information, Al-Quran Explorer supplies a very clear and specific advanced search system. A multiple-verse search option is also available.

The interface is straightforward; however, it relies upon the use of strange-looking graphics for navigation. It is unclear exactly what these icons are supposed to represent, and that can cause confusion at times. Though functional, the interface is clearly quite old, and that makes it less than pleasing to work with. However, it still gets the job done.

Unfortunately, we can't expect any advancements in the software, as the developer has stopped officially retailing it. Fortunately, it can still be used and downloaded, though we can't expect the developer to continue to produce updates. This means that in the future, it may only be available on slightly archaic devices.

Nonetheless, the software is very useful and remains one of the best guides to the Quran available. The Al-Quran Explorer is a wonderful option for an intensive look at the doctrines and ideas that make up the Quran.

Pros:

  • great search options to find what you are looking for
  • good organizational options
  • offers clear view of the Quran

Cons:

  • difficult to navigate
  • may not be compatible with advanced devices
  • can be difficult to navigate the old interface
