جسے ان کے اوپر سات رات اور آٹھ دن کے لئے مسلسل مسخّرکردیا گیا تو تم دیکھتے ہو کہ قوم بالکل مفِدہ پڑی ہوئی ہے جیسے کھوکھلے کھجور کے درخت کے تنے
- Jawadi, Zeeshan Haider
اللہ تعالیٰ نے اُس کو مسلسل سات رات اور آٹھ دن اُن پر مسلط رکھا (تم وہاں ہوتے تو) دیکھتے کہ وہ وہاں اِس طرح پچھڑے پڑے ہیں جیسے وہ کھجور کے بوسیدہ تنے ہوں

This website is a work of passion. It exists only for a couple of reasons:
1) I wanted to understand the Book without involving any second-party sources of guidance i.e. exegesis, or asbab-e-nuzul, or extra-Quranic ahadith, etc. 2) You must also know what the bare truth is so we can work together.
Because the process must be transparent, the entire website is available for you to download. You can go through the code, and if you can make any improvements to this process, you are most welcome to. It is a humble request to update me regarding the improvements so I can also update myself.
This website was possible by help of many people and forums who helped me to learn Arabic, Philosophy, Law, Psychology, and PHP and other Web scripts. To be honest, I do not even know the names of many but I did learn from them. Some of these people were already dead by the time I read their input.
The entire code of this website is availble for the same reason, that what they taught me, I can only pay it forward.
The Arabic text of the Quran was obtained from Tanzil. The additional translations were also obtained from Tanzil from this link.
The social-sharing images of verses were obtained from Legacy Quran.com, and were then resized for proper social-media display.
