The Holy Quran Book for Windows delivers the complete Quran in a digital format.

The Quran is the most important text of Islam. The Holy Quran Book for Windows is the complete Quran in a digital format that you can read from your Windows laptop or desktop PC. Like the actual text, this program separates the work into chapters—called surahs—and further organizes it into verses—called ayahs. You can read the Quran here from beginning to end, but you can search all surahs and ayahs as well as bookmark and tag aspects of the text that may be particularly important to you.

The Holy Quran Book for Windows is quite user-friendly, and you should have no problem flipping through the pages as you would with a traditional book. This is in large part because the developer has chosen to make this program look like an actual Quran rather than something more critical. The visual style is striking. There are also helpful cues that lead readers toward their objectives.

These helpful guides are not limited to just the user interface. As with most religious texts, the Quran can prove quite challenging to novice and intermediate users. There are guides for these sections as well, and readers can find insight and other resources with just a mouse click.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Holy Quran Book for Windows is that the Quran itself is fully narrated. So, if you prefer to listen rather than read or just cannot read at the moment for whatever reason, you can enable the narration, and you can specify exactly whether the narration begins and ends. The anonymous narrator has a good voice for this and speaks clearly.

The biggest issue with the Holy Quran Book for Windows is that it has no language support beyond Arabic. The user interface, the Quran text, the resources and the narration are all in Arabic. Many of the people who read this review will be English speakers seeking at least an English option. It is a shame that the Holy Quran Book for Windows does not support English and other languages because most modern Quran software does and this is a fantastic application otherwise.
