Currently, various apps in the market are catering to the needs of Muslims. All these apps aim to assist Muslims in practicing their religious duties on the go. These apps let you find prayer timings, read Quran with Tafseer, and find Qibla direction, no matter where you are.
A variety of smartphone apps have been developed to aid the Muslim community in reading and memorizing Quran. However, there is a lack of apps focusing on building a habit of regular Quran reading or promoting the community reading of Quran among Muslims.
QforQuran is a platform with the aim to fill this gap and bring the Muslim community together through Quran. QforQuran, according to its developers, is the world’s first habit building, community driven Quran reading app. The app was launched in 2016 for both Android and iOS users. After receiving much appreciation from the Muslim community for its novel features, QforQuran is all set to launch its web application this Ramadan.
QforQuran brings the beautiful but, sadly, now less prevalent Muslim concept of Quran Khwani to your smartphones. Users can create Quran recitation events with a few clicks and invite their-their loved ones to read Quran with them. Users can contribute in completing Quran, no matter where they live. The Quran reading app uses learning and gaming techniques that encourage users to read Quran every day and helps in developing a habit. Some key features of the application include:
With QforQuran, you are not just reading the Quran alone but are always contributing in completing Quran with the community. By reading 10 ayahs each day, users can contribute in completing up to 1000 Qurans.
QforQuran helps users develop a Quran reading habit by allowing them to read Quran at their own pace. Users enter the amount of time they are willing to give to Quran reading each day. Users are then automatically assigned tasks according to their time preference. There is a deadline for each task. Users only read 5-10 minutes of Quran daily. Gradually, this becomes a routine, and users start reading Quran more efficiently and giving it more time.
QforQuran enables you to view your personal progress as well as the community’s progress. Personal progress view enables the user to see the number of ayahs, and his/her contribution to Quran reading. Whereas the home view enables a user to view the number of verses read, the number of users in the community, and the number of Qurans completed.
