The Quran

Online Translation and Commentary

About us

We’re a couple of people who are passionate about sacred texts and any other subject that falls under this broad topic. It’s just about impossible to imagine a world without sacred words, but at the same time these ubiquitous words have most of us taking them for granted. We believe the best way to understand anything sacred is to seek clarity through different perspectives. So take a closer look. This is what we are all about.

This project is the Quran + you.

The project is a great way to study and learn the Qur’an: the central religious text of Islam. Muslims considers the Quran as the verbatim word of God and the finale divine revelation. Through this project, you can easily explore, browse and research the Quran and it’s variety of translations online. We put your translation and commentary first and give you the best ways to share, discover, and be inspired. Some day we hope to include translations of the Quran in all the languages in the world, as well.

The project has been at the forefront of Quran media for the past many years, with a vision of broadcasting the voice of the Quran. Formed by two former Computer Science students at the University of Copenhagen in November 2007 under the name ‘Online Quran Project’, this project improves the way sacred texts are freely studied, compared and recited online.

We’re based in wonderful Copenhagen, Denmark.
