The Holy Quran - English app reviews

  • Hindu literature used to describe Allah 1/5

    By Isra1590
    Please see the section “Divine Essence” in the “Discover” tab. It gives an inaccurate and untrue Hindu quote to describe Allah(swt). Please delete this app and do not use it. May Allah(set) protect us all from the sneaky Devil. Ameen!
  • Wrong information. 1/5

    By Marvouti
    “He Himself is the tree, the seed, and the germ. He Himself is the flower, the fruit, and the shade. He Himself is the sun, the light, and the lighted. He Himself is the manifold form, and the infinite space; He is the breath, the word, and the meaning. He Himself is the limit and the limitless, and beyond both the limited and the limitless is He. There are no words to tell that which one is He”. These are the words of the Indian poet Kabir who was a Hindu , which has no place in Quran . None of the Islamic books talk about Allah this way. The entity of Allah is completely different and far from these hindu verses. You need to remove it .
  • Corruption 1/5

    By ينب قحطان احمد فخري العاني
    Wrong translation corruption I think the translation came from hindos believe
  • It’s has Hindu theological aspects of their God 1/5

    By hella sus
    Saw the review a brother did on TikTok and how their were Hindu poems describing Allah (swt) as a “seed” “flower” “breath” and so on. This contradicts Islamic theology about Allah in Islam. Please DO NOT USE THIS APP until fixed or it needs to be taken down!
  • Tafsir 1/5

    By zakkyyy123
    this app gets their sources from Hindu scriptures which they then are adding into the tafsir. everyone should report this app.
  • There’s a TikTok video talking about how you guys describe Allah swt. 1/5

    By 'jamal
    “He Himself is the tree, the seed, and the germ. He Himself is the flower, the fruit, and the shade. He Himself is the sun, the light, and the lighted. He Himself is the manifold form, and the infinite space; He is the breath, the word, and the meaning. He Himself is the limit and the limitless, and beyond both the limited and the limitless is He. There are no words to tell that which one is He”. (Kabir).
  • Malicious Quran app 1/5

    By sfaer
    “He Himself is the tree, the seed, and the germ. He Himself is the flower, the fruit, and the shade. He Himself is the sun, the light, and the lighted. He Himself is the manifold form, and the infinite space; He is the breath, the word, and the meaning. He Himself is the limit and the limitless, and beyond both the limited and the limitless is He. There are no words to tell that which one is He”. (Kabir). This is blasphemy this is a Brahma poem not a description of Allah God This app need to be deleted Thanks Mustafa Khalaila
  • Shirk 1/5

    By oshnahama
    This app has all kinds of shirk when you scroll thru the different parts of the ‘discover’ section. It teaches Sufism which is not Islam. Tell everyone you know and uninstall!!!
  • Deviant way to get Hindu scripture folded into a Quran app 1/5

    By rfghjhf
    The person who made the app has added a section where he adds his own explanations of Islam and Allah, full of mistakes and even in some areas frank Hindu scripture! Clearly lacks basic understanding of Islam. Report and delete the app!
  • Biased 1/5

    By lovingislam
    When the app described the essence of Allah, there was a paragraph that was describing our Creator based on the descriptions of the Hindu creature Brahmans saying that Allah is a seed, a tree, and other unspeakable things, auothobillah. Please do your research and find other Quran alternative apps.
  • Have Hindu beliefs all of it not Islamic at all 1/5

    By fuxksn
    If you are Muslim person don’t get this app they are using Hindu religion text and they present nothing that’s Islamic they tried to hide their little beliefs in our religion don’t download and report asap.
  • ⚠️ CORRUPT APP 1/5

    By ΛS|•|
    This is a warning to anyone believing this app was made by Muslims. This app was made by a non-Muslim and has attempted to corrupt the Quran by inserting Hindu holy text to describe Allah. While all we respect all religions, the insertion of Hindu holy text into a holy Quran app is grossly inappropriate and is fundamentally evil, if not blasphemous. I will report this to Apple to have the app removed if the text is not corrected.

    By xanyonmousx
    It has Sikh scripture added to it hidden in between Islamic information plz plz plz don’t use this app and report it so we can get off the market!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • App contains shirk 1/5

    By DiskSheep
    In the section speaking on the divine essence of Allah swt it uses a hindu poem that says He is a seed or a tree. Please fix this!
  • The best Quran app ever 5/5

    By Sallyninn
    I really love this app and I will recommend it to all my friends and family, one thing I love about this app is that they actually listen to people whenever you complain about something or write a review, they fix it as soon as possible. Definitely here to stay and I hope it reaches many people as well.
  • Beautiful App 5/5

    By among us devs
    I am a new Muslim and I love this app so much it is perfect🤩
  • Attention please. 1/5

    By 382949693
    Assalamu alaikum. I just want to say I love this app for my iPhone but I wish it was also available for my sons kindle fire. This is his favorite Quran app and he has already learned so much but his time with my phone is limited so having it on his device would increase his exposure to the Quran. I converted 2 years ago and started memorizing around the same time. Using this app along with others my 4 year old son started memorizing the Quran and even the Arabic words all by his self. He’s 5 now and he’s gotten distracted by other games but always comes back to this app. If it’s not possible to get this on amazons App Store then I guess I’ll try getting him an iPad. Jazakallah khair and my Allah increase you.

  • Great 😊 5/5

    By 1-Nano-1
    I can’t even express how happy I am about finding this app I love it so much and highly recommend it to others. I love how when it reads it to you in Arabic then translates it in English 👍 This is great for people who don’t know Arabic, the app is also simple and easy to use. ☪️
  • Great App 5/5

  • Excellent App with a (new) small bug 4/5

    By Volarchico
    For a person who is learning Arabic as a second language, I find this app is excellent to get exposed to the Quranic teachings. Recently, however, I’ve noticed that clicking on the badge part in the upper right corner of the screen no longer brings up the pop-up window showing progress. Instead, it just reverts to the Home Screen of my iPad. Can this be fixed? Again, thank you for creating this app, and making it available to explorers like myself.
  • Not sure about the Tefsir 3/5

    By ekcyrucgd
    Although the app is better than most , for me the Tafsir seems to have a contemporary goals which sets out to discredit as many miracles as it can. Among others, In particular I am not convinced the claim that jinns including Iblis are actually human beings too . My opinion , Just take it with a grain of salt. Allah knows best
  • Perfect 5/5

    By RobertsHeath92
  • Amazing 5/5

    By kim amina
    I have down loaded so many Quran apps. And this one is better than the rest. The best thing is it remember where you left off. Most don’t do that. And you can pick from a lot of people to who you want to hear speaking. It is perfect.
  • Too many parentheses 3/5

    By Africanminneapolis
    There are too many parentheses in this translation. Please keep the direct translation of the Quran without adding any extra information in parentheses.

  • Great app 5/5

    By B. Arnholt
    As a Christian I am not afraid to read other religious books out of fear of conversion unlike most of my Muslim friends. This app has been a huge blessing in helping me to have more deep conversations with friends and has opened my eyes to a lot of things that I hadn’t know about Islam before.

    By Babangida_gh
    Salam. I’m in NYC and your Fajr times (ISNA, which is what I have it set to) are way off, about 14 mins off. All other times on this app are within 1min of the other app’s prayer times with the same settings. Please advise, I’ve tried contacting you but your website doesn’t work. Thanks.
