Dear Kais,
You have indeed made an outstanding and fantastic contribution towards the learning of the Quran. I am currently enrolled at a ten month Quran learning course, and the most difficult part is Arabic grammar. To my credit, it is further tough as I cannot comprehend the lectures in Urdu despite this language being my mother tongue - thanks to English medium education throughout my academic career. Hence I take the lectures in Urdu, and then mentally convert the content to English in my notes. This is an ordeal. I have discussed your work with my Arabic grammar instructor, and your work is going to make my life simpler. May Allah bless you for your contribution. Many Thanks and Kind Regards.

Salamun alaykum Brother Kais,
Thank you very much for the word by word Qur'an project. I have benefited immensely. I found the root for the word nabluwannakum, which was ba lam waw. Then through the website, I listed all verses which contain words with the same root. This helped me understand more of what this root means.

As an expression of gratitude for the Quranic Arabic Corpus, I just want to take a few minutes to again thank you for this wonderful tool which you made available and maintain on the Internet. I am busy making a fresh new translation of the Quran into my mother tongue in South Africa, which is Afrikaans. Whilst I do use different available commentaries, your word for word breakdown of the Quranic verses has been of tremendous help to me. Thank you so much and may God bless you and the team working on this with the greatest of blessings here on Earth and also in the afterlife. Sincerely, and peace be with you.

A picture is worth a thousand words. So a concrete example that you can not only see, but also play with, is worth ten thousand words. The Quranic Arabic Corpus incorporates much of my vision for the study of the Bible in the third millennium of our civilization. For "under the hood" details, see the description of the research of Kais Dukes. Three elements of this project are morphological annotation, a syntax treebank and a semantic ontology. All three are combined into a web user interface in such a way that collaboration is possible. The general public interested in the Quran itself can browse the original Arabic text, and dive into morphology, syntax and semantics as desired. Scholars can work on the actual analysis simply by logging in. This model of linguistic annotation of a corpus can easily be extended to include bibliography, web resources, archaeological and historical data - the possibilities are endless. One extension ought to be the ability to add user annotation which is stored locally on the user/visitor’s own computer but which integrates seamlessly with the website. I noticed one feature that is lacking: the ability for complex searching, using the morphology, syntax and semantic annotations. There is a search box for simple text queries, but a more sophisticated search engine would greatly enhance the value of this remarkable resource.

I'm grateful to you for developing the software that offers online the grammatical analysis of each sentence in the Qur'an, at http://corpus.quran.com. Though I know no Arabic, I'm finding I can use it to discover which root is being used at any particular place, and then check out where else it occurs. I shall certainly recommend it to students who are taking courses in Religious Studies and Arabic at the same time. Best wishes.

I am an American English teacher living in Amman, Jordan. Although a teacher by trade, I have been a student of the culture and language of the Middle East since I spent the summer in Gaza shortly after completing university back in 1997. Recently I have committed to getting a much better grasp of the Arabic language, registering in formal courses through the University here. One of my goals is to become more proficient at reading the Qur'an in Arabic as many of my Arab friends tell me this is the best way to learn the Arabic language. Theories of language acquisition aside, it seems a good suggestion. Somehow I discovered your corpus.quran.com website and it is a treasure for anyone trying to learn the Arabic language from the Qur'an! Thank-you for your hard work in making this resource available - I greatly appreciate it and I am sure others do as well.

I have seen your website and your PhD thesis topic seems very interesting. I always have one question on my mind and that is how we can use NLP tools to discover the secret behind those letters at the beginning of some of the suras of the Quran. I am sure by using NLP tools we can find very interesting results. Perhaps we can count the letters in the whole sura and ignore those special letters at the beginning (because those letters seems to appear almost in each word) and then sort them from low frequency to high frequency. That is one idea. I am sure you are the right person who can discover the secrets of Quran with the help of your friends. I am sure Allah has hidden secrets in Quran to be discovered by intelligent people like you. Thanks for reading my message and best of luck with your PhD.

Assalaamu alaikum,
This past weekend I discovered your website corpus.quran.com and, alhamdulillah, I have gained much needed insight into the grammar of the Qur'an. I hope you will publish this work, including the word morphology links. I am English speaking only and have been learning Arabic when possible with no formal teacher or classes. There are many Muslims here in the U.S. who either cannot afford formal classical Arabic lessons or read but can't speak Arabic, but we are eager to better understand the Qur'an. We prefer not to memorize an ayah and fail to understand the meaning of each word within it. I hope this website content (including any revisions made) will be published soon and made available in the U.S. and elsewhere. If possible, please keep me informed of plans for publication.

I am a student trying to learn the Arabic language as well as the Quran and I felt obligated to thank you for this great piece of work. I have to admit that I am learning faster and more using this website than my actual classes. This is an incredible tool for all learners! I know it is demanding at the start, but I hope you will make this tool available for more languages in the future and I suppose the purpose of the GNU public licence is to serve exactly this purpose. I am pretty sure, people all around the world would be willing to participate in a project like this to make it more accessible to people of all languages. I hope you will see the beautiful results of your work both in this world and in paradise.
Why I love your website is that everything I learn in class has a corresponding example in your project. Sometime the assigned practices become repetitive, and they loose on the thinking part but in your project, I see all the rules implemented together, with different color codes, including the meaning and the grammar explanation. That is really important for a visual person like me. It is like detailed flash cards. You also have each verse voiced (pronounced) down there! I've even memorized the last two verses of the "Surah Bakara" while studying! And when I click on a word (or meaning) it goes to the Quranic dictionary and gives me many different forms of the word too. This is beyond what I was looking for when I came across your project through a friend. Thanks again for this great tool.

Both my technophobic mother and my 7 year old brother are able to use it with ease. Also a new revert sister found it very useful too.

Jazakallahu khair. I have visited your Quranic Arabic Corpus website. It's really amazing work, since your background is mainly in software engineering. I've realized that as Muslim we have to spend more of our time in learning and understanding the Quran. Since my mother tongue is not Arabic, when I started to learn it a few times previously, I found some difficulties. By using your website, learning the Quran has become much easier and more enjoyable. It makes my motivation to understand the Quran even higher. It's my honor to know you. Jazakallahu khairan kathiran. Wassalam.

Before I saw your wonderful site, I read the reviews from site visitors who have written to you about their feelings of gratitude for this very necessary work. That was enough to have got a strong impression about the project, and about you, the initiator and developer of the site. Today, with the great desire to study the Quran, it is not possible to supply the demand for individual teachers, textbooks, and dictionaries of the Arabic language. For this effort, the will of Almighty God is a global process. Then a man comes to the rescue with just such a source of knowledge ... your website and other sources of this kind. That's why users of your site thank you!

I just wanted to take a minute from my work to thank you for the Quranic Arabic Corpus website. I was just alerted to its existence 2-3 weeks back and was so happy to learn of it. In fact, I had wondered for several years why nothing of the sort had yet been established (and even contemplated designing something of the sort myself, if I didn't lack the necessary technical training), as it is just the sort of useful and important project which the internet is perfectly suited for. I haven't yet explored the site in full, but, as an Islamic and Qur'anic studies scholar-in-training presently employed as a translator of tafasir and ahadith, have benefited from the search functions and grammatical notes already on a few occasions. Anyway, I just wanted to express my appreciation and to encourage you keep up the good work.

This is one of the best projects of the Quran for all those lovers of the word of Allah and may Allah reward and bless those who put all this together. It is amazing work and very useful. Please everyone visit this site and make use of it. All these types of Quranic projects, whether tafseer, translations into almost every language, transliteration, grammar and Quranic language, leave no possible reason not to learn the book of Allah. It seems like Allah is providing human beings with every possible means and access to reach his holy book, so that we can not argue and reason on the day of judgement that we did not have access to his book due to various barriers of language.

The syntactic treebank is an original idea, which I didn't see in any previous project (from the Haifa project, to commercial and even not-yet-published projects).

Hi Kais,
I am teaching an introduction to Arabic NLP course to Arabic native-speakers in Cairo university, Egypt. The students have strong linguistic skills but have never been exposed to NLP before. I would like to illustrate to them how they can help in NLP using real, useful examples. I found the Quranic corpus and thought it may be a good idea to introduce the students to the idea of corpus and annotation and actually use their Arabic-grammar skills in the annotation. Thanks a lot.

Wow. This whole website is a teaching tool for studying Qur'an from the basics - understanding what each Arabic word means and how they connect to make beautiful sentences. The syntax branching system makes the Arabic much easier to appreciate, understand and memorise. For non Arabic speakers like I, whatever your level - this is seriously awesome. The word by word Qur'an breaks down the definitions and types of words (adjectives, synonyms etc). A Syntactic Treebank branches out in a mind-node fashion to illustrate a colour-coded analysis of the words from the Qur'an. This site is a complete package. It includes a full English translation alongside audio Qur'an recitation by Qari Saad Al-Ghamadi, a dictionary and the above stuff for truly visual learning. I'm in love. I give it 10 out of 10.

I named my son Zuhair Ishraque. One day someone commented that 'Ishraque' is a name for a girl. While reciting the Quran I found the word in verse (38:18). Now I find here that the word is masculine. I gave some effort earlier to recite Quran with meaning. Here I find a wonderful website for that. Heartiest gratitude to all behind this grand work. May Allah accept our efforts.
