Online Interactive Quran | Tajwidi Quran

Shaykh Abdullah Nooruddeen Durkee is the khalifah in the Western Hemisphere of Shaykh Ibrahim Muhammad al-Battawi, of the Shadhuliyyah-Badawiyyah sufi order for the Illumination of Hearts and Tranquility of the Self. He is the editor, translator, and author of more than a dozen books the most recent of which is The Transliterated Tajwidi Qur'an.

It is a beautiful guide for non-Arabic readers to the pronunciation of the original text and to understanding some of the meanings revealed in the Glorious Qur’an.

This new translation and transliteration of the Qur’an makes it easy for the learner or non-Arabic reader to pronounce the sounds of the Words of Allah while cross-checking with the clear Arabic text. The transliteration (based on Mesa and Hart's rules) is clear and accurate, and is found directly opposite its Arabic counterpart. The English appears ayat by ayat under the transliteration. Both the Arabic and English characters are large enough to read easily, and are marked with detailed orthography (punctuation, stops, continuity, breathing, rules of tajwid).

Shaykh Abdullah Nooruddeen DurkeeIn 1994, Shaykh Abdullah Nooruddeen Durkee began this work while living in Alexandria, Egypt, as an aid to non-Arabic readers of the Qur’an. After it was completed in 2000, he sent it to a select group of Arabic scholars, speakers and readers as well as to a representative cross-section of Muslim readers for further review and correction. This latter stage, coupled with careful revisions of form, layout and design, took 3 more years. It was printed and bound during Ramadan 1424-2003. You can order a copy from here.

A portion of the interactive Qur'an reciter is now available online. There from the left side drop down menu you can choose a chapter, page language and once you click [Play] it recites the quran with highlight for easy following. A great tool for aiding memorizing Quran or for listening.
