The Three Translations:

P: = Qur'an Translation by Marmaduke Pickthall

S: = Qur'an Translation by Mohammad Habib Shakir

About The Koran:

The original usage of the word qur`ān is in the Qur'an itself, where it occurs about 70 times assuming various meanings. It is a verbal noun (maṣdar) of the Arabic verb qara`a , meaning "he read" or "he recited", and represents the Syriac equivalent qeryānā which refers to "scripture reading" or "lesson". While most Western scholars consider the word to be derived from the Syriac, the majority of Muslim authorities hold the origin of the word is qara`a itself. In any case, it had become an Arabic term by Muhammad's lifetime. Among the earliest meanings of the word Qur'an is the "act of reciting", for example in a Qur'anic passage: "Ours is it to put it together and [Ours is] its qur`ān". In other verses it refers to "an individual passage recited [by Muhammad]". In the large majority of contexts, usually with a definite article (al-), the word is referred to as the "revelation" (wahy), that which has been "sent down" (tanzīl) at intervals. Its liturgical context is seen in a number of passages, for example: "So when al-qur`ān is recited, listen to it and keep silent". The word may also assume the meaning of a codified scripture when mentioned with other scriptures such as the Torah and Gospel.

The term also has closely related synonyms which are employed throughout the Qur'an. Each of the synonyms possess their own distinct meaning, but their use may converge with that of qur`ān in certain contexts. Such terms include kitāb ("book"); āyah ("sign"); and sūrah ("scripture"). The latter two terms also denote units of revelation. Other related words are: dhikr, meaning "remembrance, " used to refer to the Qur'an in the sense of a reminder and warning; and hikma, meaning "wisdom, " sometimes referring to the revelation or part of it.[25][31]

The Qur'an has many other names. Among those found in the text itself are al-furqan ("discernment" or "criterion"), al-huda ("the guide"), dhikrallah ("the remembrance of God"), al-hikmah ("the wisdom"), and kalamallah ("the word of God"). Another term is al-kitāb ("the book"), though it is also used in the Arabic language for other scriptures, such as the Torah and the Gospels. The term mus'haf ("written work") is often used to refer to particular Qur'anic manuscripts but is also used in the Qur'an to identify earlier revealed books.

It worked first time...

:
I had no problem installing this free Koran, but it does take about 20-25 seconds to load every time, then is somewhat choppy to navigate. It is a good reference, but lacks a couple of the usual amenities of a good Reader, such as being able to flick through pages. You can only scroll longer pages. If you want to read the Koran instead of referencing, this is not that convenient: you have to constantly click on a 'Next' button that is in different places depending upon the length of the section you are reading. If it is a long section, you need to scroll in order to even see the 'Next" button. I have an iTouch, and I was able to add notes to any selection, but for iPhone users, it has a neat ability to record and index your voice notes throughout as well (I assume, since I recorded dead air without a microphone).

0/5 stars

Doesn't load.

:
Tried re-installing, no luck. Waited about sixty seconds, as one reviewer stated it took 20-25 seconds to load for them, but still no luck.

0/5 stars

Doesn't do anything

:
The description sounds excellent though when I lauxh the app, all I get is a dark background. I tried restoring and re-installing, still won't work.
