We know since the beginning of time that we must take care of both the body’s as well as the spirit’s needs. However, our bodily needs are never overlooked, while our spiritual needs are often, especially in today’s fast-paced society. Well, not anymore! Here is a look at the 3 best Quran apps for Windows Phone.
The Al Quran Application allows users to take Quran everywhere they go and enjoy it. All you need is a Windows 8 powered device.
What sets Al Quran apart from other applications in the Windows Phone Store?
It comes with verse-by-verse translation, has verse-by-verse recitation as well as the option to do full-text searches. While the recitation requires an internet connection for it to work, the application comes with the option of downloading the recitation for offline use as well. Recitation is available by over 15 reciters; including the amazing Abdul Basit Murattal and Abdullah Basfar
Its interface is very intuitive, and it comes with a plethora of customization options. You can change the font size, the type of font it uses as well as its colour theme. The Al Quran Windows Phone application is translated into over 35 languages including English, Chinese and even Urdu, so no matter what mother tongue you have, you will be able to enjoy the teachings of the Quran.
There is also the option to add bookmarks, which can get synced with all your Windows devices. That means that if you bookmarked a certain passage on your windows phone, you would be able to continue reading on your Windows 8 laptop or tablet device as well. An excellent option for those of us that find themselves using multiple devices at different times of the day.
Users can also use voice commands such as “open surah” or “recite surah” to control the application which allows for the application to be used while driving. Installation is straightforward; just search for the application with your favourite search engine and click the install button. You will be able to access all the teachings of the Quran in a matter of seconds.
Feel like your mobile device is disconnecting you from your spiritual connection with God? It is time to put your fears aside with Quran. This application for the Windows Phone allows users to read and listen to the Quran in a fast, simple and very accessible way. Find yourself having some spare time and nothing to do? Why not feed your soul? Just open the Quran application and immerse yourself in its teachings.
Having problems reading the Arabic Othmani font? No problem! You can control the font size to suit your needs. Both landscape and portrait modes are available, offering optimal reading conditions no matter the size or branding of your device. The application is designed with user-friendliness in mind, besides adjusting the font and display modes you can also use the “night mode” feature which allows you to read your Quran Surahs in just about any lighting conditions or environments.
Something came up, and you have to stop reading abruptly? You will be happy to know that the Quran application saves the last reading position automatically, which makes remembering where you stopped as easy as just opening your app. While reading, some of you might find yourself desiring to share a particular sentence or entire teaching with your friends on Twitter or Facebook. That’s where the possibility to share any ayah with other people on your favourite social media channel comes in! Just touch the button and congratulations, all your friends will be able to enjoy the selected passage.
The application is free, and you can find it easily just by writing Quran for Windows Phone in your favourite search engine. Afterwards, you just click the install button, and you are on your way for a spiritual journey that you will not forget. All content found in the Quran application is Azhar Approved.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with the “Sura” term, you should know that the Quran is divided into chapters named Sura and every Sura into Ayah. The term Ayah means “verse,” with each paragraph being marked by a number.
With the influx of new technology and the speed at which the world changes, it can be quite easy to forget your spiritual needs. After all, who has time to read a book when there are so many things to do? Well, you do! With the help of the مصحف المدينة النبوية Windows Phone application. This application allows you to read the Quran on your phone or another mobile device that has a Windows operating system.
Remember how we mentioned that you could take your app onto any Windows-powered device?

It will also detect your devices’ language automatically, adjusting its interface accordingly to your language of preference.
Do you have a favourite passage from the Quran? You can find it easily by using the application’s search feature. You can also add bookmarks to keep reading at a later date. And because we all know how difficult it can be to read something on our mobile device at night, the application comes with the option of enabling its “night reading” mode, reducing eye strain and letting you enjoy your lecture no matter the time of day.
As the word is meant to be shared, you will be happy to know that sharing the teaching of the Quran on your favourite social networking sites is as easy as pressing a button.
