Using iTunes to Promote Hatred Towards Muslims is Hateful and Just Stupid!
By: Mike B 54 - Aug 18, 2008
I'm Catholic, and if you look into the history of the Catholic Church you see things like The Crusades and The Spanish Inquisition, where the Church used the Bible as an excuse to (often violently) convert unwilling people to Catholicism. But, do you see people spreading hatred of the Catholic Church in the ratings of the various Bible apps here on iTunes? Hardly! As in any religion or ethnic group, there will be some people who put the majority of their group in a bad light merely because of their misguided actions. To even imply that all Muslims condone violence or to say that the teachings of their prophet Mohammed promote violence and killing is an insult not just to the people who practice the Muslim religion, but to people of intelligence everywhere. On top of that, to use reviews in the iTunes Store to expose your stupidity and bigotry is just wrong... get yourself a blog somewhere and post your shortsighted comments where you and your bigoted friends can revel in your lack of intelligence.
As for me. I downloaded iQuran because, like many others, I wanted to expose myself to the teachings of another religion. I have known many Muslims during my life, and I have found them to be warm, caring people... not once did I think they were hiding a sword or dagger behind their back. I personally think that if more people took the time to learn about other religions rather than just "assume" things about them that the world would be better off. Stop taking your cues from the stuff you see on CNN!
I had to add to my review after reading the reviews posted for iQuran and iQuran Pro by bobobobobobobobobobobobobo... first of all, I'm sure he/she/it never purchased the Pro version; Apple should really prevent people from posting moronic remarks for apps they haven't purchased. Second, the grammar points out just how "smart" this individual is... "waist of time"??? The same "waist" you put a belt around??? This user is a WASTE of space!
Another update. this one directed at Review989898998: It never ceases to amaze me that an ingoramus like you even has the porowess to use a computer! You'd better hope you're greeted by naked women when you de, since that's probably the only time you'll see a naked woman up close & personal.
Excellent combination of tradition and technology!

This application is very well put-together and appealing to the eye. I come to religions from an agnostic point of view (a charitably diplomatic statement), but I like to learn about them as I have friends/associates of many faiths. As a techno-geek, this makes it possible to learn in a manner that I enjoy. And since the Quran is supposed to be sung and not just read, it's nice that I can actually hear a reading with the words available to me. Simply excellent way of bringing tradition into the 21st Century. I wish some of the other religious texts were available with an interface this nice.

I was very amazed when I found out that someone took the time to make a Quran application. After downloading it, I was even more amazed at it's programming and ease of use. It's truly an incredible program, probably one of the best that's out right now (by far the best free app). I'm very happy to find that it has english translations too, and the entire thing is downloaded and installed lightning fast. Truly impressive. Praise to the developers, Mashallah
By: Denver Terry - Aug 16, 2008
The flow and functionality of this application is utterly amazing and beautiful.
Having many Muslim friends when I was in the Army, years ago, I already had some insight into Islam so I decided to download the app to further study what my friend's beliefs were. Islam is similar to Christianity in many aspects, both good and bad. Either the Quaran or the Bible can be interpreted to meet the needs of people filled with hate. Open your eyes to the truth and learn rather than judge off of poorly made movies and uneducated rhetoric.
Again, this app is beautifully constructed.
By: HeavyMetalMan_329 - Aug 13, 2008
Great application, thank you for the effort. As for the hateful and ignorant remarks, get with the times, people come in all sorts of flavors.
If you're using a free application dowloaded to your phone as a basis for judging an entire religion, you're going about it the wrong way. If you're that interested or
Concerned, try checking out a book that has explanatory commentary, arabic is a complex language that even its most fluent speakers struggle with at times.
Reading a few verses on your iphone during the morning commute is hardly a good education, but my guess is you've made your mind up long before you downloaded the app. I suppose ignorance is bliss, but I love you for trying anyways. No, we're not out to kill everyone, and we're not out to take over the world, and neither are the freemasons and KFC's colonel Sanders (RIP).
Dude, you need to understand what you're about to read before formulating any decisions. Chill out, take a deep breath and do a good deed. Feed a hungry person or help someone in need, that's a better way to spend your energy, be good to yourself.
By: Mdjackson - Aug 13, 2008
The comment that one of the previous reviewer made is irrelevant to the content and quality of this web application. Rather, this person is trying create negative publicity about knowing nothing about the context of this quranic verses when those were relaesed in 14th century. Those verses were strictly meant for those people who were having conflicts with Muslims at that particular time. If these verses were applicable at all times, then the prophet would have killed everybody when he finally won all the battles and settled in Makkah. He did not kill anyone, nor did he forced anybody to accept the religion which he could have easily done at that time.
Still no answer. Only false statements.
By: Mr.Omar - 09-Oct-2009
It is not logical to believe any of your suggestions, as unfortunately, you only seem to be capable of making up statements from your limited knowledge. Faith would be to believe your statements as truth. The theory of evolution actually requires faith, since there is evidence missing in order to take it as being conclusive; hence it is only a theory.
And yes, I am logically challenging you. It would seem that at some point between reading what I have written and writing your response, you forget what I have written; as thus far you cannot seem to answer anything I put to you. At least not with fact.
Please read Surat al Baqara, verse 256: "let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out from error...". Now you claim my statement regarding this to be 'wrong', yet it is there, in the Qur'an (2:256). Please enlighten me to your evidence for what you say about seeking out and killing.
It would appear that you are a man of faith, as you believe what you claim with no evidence in support. That, my brother, is faith. I am a man of logic because I require evidence for what I believe. You believe something that has been put in front of you (perhaps verbally, or on a web site- the Internet can be a very misguiding place) without verifying it. That, is faith. You Mmsman, are a man of faith. You are, to use your own words, "accepting what is put in front of you as truth".
You claim as fact, that in Islam we [must] believe in God first before the rest of it makes sense. Aside from the fact that there is nothing in Islam as a basis for this claim, if you look from an 'outside the box'/practical perspective, people who convert to Islam from atheism do not find themselves in such a situation as you so claim. That wouldn't even make sense now, would it? Why not ask a few? Please, try using evidence to support anything you claim; not just here, but in life, generally.
To believe this claim you make would itself involve, to again use your own words, "a leap of faith". If I could once more please borrow your words, the basis of what you say is in faith.
But of course, you keep believing your faith.
Your brother in humanity,
Ps. The Big Bang theory is consistent with Islam.
By: Elitegamer360 - 03-Oct-2009
Edit: I would suggest to the developer to make this app paid for may be £1 or £2 so we can avoid non Muslims putting negative reveiws about the holy book.
What kind of people are they, we do not go and write all kind of wrongs about their bible. That's why our religon is true because it says that they would do this kind off stuff.
Thanks allot for this great app!
Edit: On Judgement Day there will only be two kinds of people, ones who did good and others who are sinners! The sinners will regret at the end because of what they said! Take care of what you say.

Jazakallahu Khair, barakallahu feekum
Mashaa Allaah, this is a beautiful tool to learn to recite the Quran and learn new surahs. I make sure to turn up the volume when entering stores that play the instrument of shaytaan (music) to keep me in the rememberance of Allaah. Beautiful job. Inshaa Allaah, Inshaa Allaah I would love to see 40 Hadeeth An-Nabawiyyah done in the same format. May Allaah ta'Ala grant everyone that worked on this project Jennah Firdaws, Ameen.
Definately a must av!!!
By: N a I m a - 10-Sep-2009
The best of all applications.... Beautifully complied n I just luv it!!!
May Allah bless d makers, us Muslims wit gud health n most of all grant us d greatest of all Iman. Amin summa Amin.

Ur phone must av been on silent, so make sure d it's on ringer (left knob of ur iPhone) wen eva u want to listen to IQuran. Hope dat helps.
Highly functional, Technically superb!
By: goodplayer - 14-Sep-2008
This excellent & tremendous effort is by no means anything ordinary.
I am a programmer too, and in my most humble opinion the programmer/developer has really proven their skills and their intelligent understanding of the needs of intended audiences for this serious and needy subject, ie The Magnificent Quran.
Rather than be impatient, personally I would thankfully wait to let the developer add future features like search, etc., while continuing to echo my suggestions for more useful features and functions.
Suggestions done tastefully can be a good thing for the future of this app as well as for it's beneficieries (like myself). However a free app of this magnitude is neither an easy task, nor something one can generally obtain without paying a price for it.
I am seriously considering purchasing the Pro version. The cost of $25 or $32 is a small price to pay when considering how significant a benefit it offers. It is also going to be my way of showing suppprt for the future development and evolving of this great application and it's developers.
By: Sapphire78 - 03-Sep-2009
Excellent application... Well done! It will be good to see some recitations from Sheikh Sudais aswell.
As for the two comments below which have nothing to do with the application... Please be kind enough to spare a few moments pointing this out to iTunes.
Political correctness is for narrow minded ppl like them who have no respect for others. Bad ppl come from all walks of life, religious n non religious backgrounds. If such bad ppl actually paid attention to their faith or had a tiny bit of respect for others they wouldn't hurt any one.
Excellent App - when is iPray coming to the Apps Store??
By: Asadie - Aug 5, 2008
This app is very well designed and quite good. Couple of issues though. The free version only gives access to one reciter of the Qur'an. Also, each chapter, while you can read the text, if you want to hear the audio recitation, you have to download the recitation file first. While there is no charge for it, it can be somewhat tiresome. Plus, if the chapters are large (like Baqarah), it could take a while. Guided Ways also has iPray, another wonderful app for prayer times and multiple Adzans, which is not yet available on the Apps Store. I urge Guided Ways to get this on here free!
Free Q'ran, $2 Bibles.
By: quequotion - Aug 5, 2008
Personally, I agree with neither religion, so let's skip that discussion.
Why is it that the Q'ran software is free while several different issues of the Bible are being sold between $0.99 and $1.99? Yes I am aware there are one or two free editions as well, but the software hardly compares to the work put into the Q'ran program. This situation will probably change in the near future, but while it lasts, scroll through the program and then read Mark 11:15-17. (sorry I don't know an equvalent Q'ran verse, but now that I have the program I'll go find one)
PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE PRODUCT
By: LEFT WING - Aug 4, 2008
TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE DEFENDING AND OFFENDINT THE RELGION OF ISLAM PLEASE STOP. To begin with if you do not like muslims please don't write a review to just to hurt a religion and its people. Second to the person who is quoting specific areas of the quran and using them to show how islam is a violent relgion. Please keep your comments to yourself, review the product not the relgion. You dont see me going to the bible app and writting that this app should be taken off. Third, for all of you muslims who are defending your religion against the right wing republican christisan nut jobs please don't. The person who is writing hateful comments is writing them just to annoy you, dont give in and defend your religion. He and his republcain craziness can go screw off. So to get back to the point this app is very usefull and very well done.
By: I-Ali - 16-Jul-2009
Thank you very much for this application.

To all negitive reviewers: Have you read it before you add your reviews? You know you can't review any book before you read it.
Here are some translated ayat from the Quran:
" Or, do they say: He has forged it. Say: Then bring ten forged chapters like it and call upon whom you can besides Allah, if you are truthful."
" Woe to every sinful liar,"
"Who hears the communications of Allah recited to him, then persists proudly as though he had not heard them; so announce to him a painful punishment."
"Say: What thing is the weightiest in testimony? Say: Allah is witness
between you and me; and this Quran has been revealed to me that with
it I may warn you and whomsoever it reaches. Do you really bear
witness that there are other gods with Allah? Say: I do not bear
witness. Say: He is only one Allah, and surely I am clear of that
which you set up (with Him)."
Great program for on the go
By: uniqueE" - Jul 30, 2008
Where do you get iquran pro, it's not in the app store. I don't like carrying things so tho perfect for me. I understand this is just the first version so inshallah all the bugs will get worked out. As for the kufars (disbelievers) your being hypocritical to your own religion by attacking ours with your bad reviews, we don't do that on your bible apps. Islam teaches us not to attack other religions. Anyway I pray that Allah has mercy on you, and bestows knowledge/wisdom on you so that you can be saved. Don't walk around deaf, dumb and blind there are many signs out there for you to believe.
By: Itz Me XD - 02-Jul-2009
Well done to the people who have made this app
Btw I was wondering, does anyone know if the English version is alright to read? Just incase I should be sticking to the Arabic version
Even at 17 I haven't read the English version =/
Mannn you people are so PATHETIC that you have to download this just so you can write a negative review.don't you have anything better to do with youselves?
GET A LIFE.
Excellent App.Gets my 5 stars
By: Minime1 - 22-Jun-2009
This is an excellent app.easy navigations & beautiful design.Works brilliantly.you can download the quran audio files individualy or complete and even gives you option of server to download from ie US,UK etc to speedup download.Very pleased to the entire Holy Quran in my pocket to read & listen to anytime Jazaka Allahu kheyran! There a pro ver of app with more qari or reciters plus additional features and in my view authors deserve reward by buying pro version of app. Download with confidence everyone you will love the app.
By: Sapporobaby - Jul 28, 2008
Funny how if you go look at the Bible reviews, you do not see any negative posts from Muslims. Could it be that they have more respect for other religions, or that they have more respect for God. To the evangelical wing nuts posting here, if you do not like the app, then do not download it. Quite simple. Even your ilk should be able to understand this.
To the authors of this application, thank you for your work and efforts. I find it sad that it is the so-called Christians here spreading all the hate.
I stopped back in to check the reviews. Still 4 stars and going strong. Now if all these so-called Christians would go read their Bible (which happen not to be free in the App Store :) ), maybe the would learn a thing or two from the prophet Jesus.
