The Quran collection

UPDATE: This site has now been made obsolete and has been replaced by

I've spent some time compiling a new website -, the information on the site features English translations by Ahmad Ali, Arberry, Daryabadi, Khan, Maududi, Pickthall, Qaribullah, Sahih international, Yusuf Ali; plus original Arabic text and transliteration.

Each verse is on a separate page, at the top of each page there are links to hadiths and tafsirs for this verse.

Each verse has a word by word breakdown of the Arabic

In the syntax column there is a link to the root of the Arabic word. Clicking it will show where else in the Quran the same root is used.  Any verse number can be clicked to take you to that verse in the Quran.

A collection of tafsirs

  1. Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi
  2. Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi - Tafhim al-Qur'an
  3. Tafsir al-Jalalayn
  4. Tafsir al-Tustari
  5. Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
Each Quran verse links to tafsirs with information on that verse and each tafsir page has a link back to the Quran verse.

A collection of hadiths

  1. Al-Adab Al-Mufrad
  2. Bulugh al-Maram
  3. Jami` at-Tirmidhi
  4. Muwatta Malik
  5. Riyad as-Salihin
  6. Sahih Bukhari
  7. Sahih Muslim
  8. Shama'il Muhammadiyah
  9. Sunan Abu Dawud
  10. Sunan an-Nasa'i
  11. Sunan Ibn Majah
Each hadith links back to the relevant Quran verse, or multiple verses if applicable.


It is possible to search in Quran, hadiths, tafsirs independently or the entire website.  The search feature uses Google, not all pages have been indexed yet.

Help needed

At the bottom of every page there is a "Report missing link / error" link.

The links between hadiths and Quran verses are incomplete and not 100% accurate. In some cases the verse is linked more than once, in some cases the verse is not linked at all, and in some cases the hadith will link to the wrong verse (often due to Roman numerals being scanned incorrectly).  What I need is for people to read through hadiths and send me a report when a link is missing or incorrect.  Links are usually written in the hadith itself, although I will also accept link suggestions to verses which are very obviously related.

Here is a useful website for converting Roman numerals to decimal numbers.

This website has taken some time to put together.  It is an excellent resource for researching the Quran and Islam, I hope that you will help me to make it even more useful.


  1. Super aid in finding all related texts. Why nobody has thought of this yet is remarkable. Equally remarkable that it should be you who makes it possible.
    Thank you for the work you've done here.....
    Oh and I wonder when you will have the first: ... "and may Allah bless you" on here :)

  2. Well done; it's about time Muslims learned a bit about their own holy book - ironic you had to do this.....

  3. Finally. There is plenty of information on the bible online, but too little in-context information about the Qu'ran.

  4. On the crowdsource page when should people tick "Hadith is incomplete"? When there is an error in the OCR perhaps?

  5. Only when text is obviously missing.

  6. OK thanks. It was a good move making a streamlined process for the user, like a zooniverse project! I mistyped the URL for anyone reading - correct url is

    Btw, once a hadith has been checked once or twice is it internally flagged so it doesn't appear again to other reviewers? If it's simply showing random hadith, including ones that have been already checked, that would be extremely inefficient, getting worse as time goes on. By the end, when there's only a few left, it will take 10,000 odd reviews of already reviewed hadiths till someone sees one of the remaining ones for the first time.

  7. As long as the code is working properly you shouldn't need to worry about it :-)
