For the first time Holy Quran Software in Malayalam-English
The Milli Gazette, August 12, 2004
Huda Info Solutions hads launched its pioneer product Holy Quran Malayalam English Translation Software Version 1.0. It is the first of its kind to have launched in any Indian language on Holy Quran that too in a single CD.
The CD comprises of the Complete Quranic Text in Arabic, Translation in Malayalam, Two English Translations, The Complete Recitation, Features aiding Memorization and Recitation of Quran, Videos and Pictures relevant to Islamic History besides a comprehensive Search facility both in English and Malayalam on words in the Holy Quran.
While the Malayalam Translation of Holy Quran is based on the Translation work done by the prominent scholars Cheriyamundam Abdul Hameed Madhani and Kunhi Muhammed Parappur, the two English Translations are by Abdullah Yusuf Ali and Marmaduke Pickthall. The distinctive feature that makes the software stand apart from its contemporaries in English and Arabic is the easiness to choose verses from any part of the Holy Quran and can be made to recite or view translation. Further, facilities are incorporated to learn details related to the Surahs (Chapters)and also features that aid the user to have a comparative study on the Malayalam/English translations. Moreover the user can directly view videos/images if the verse he is focusing has links to videos/images. For instance, any verse referring to Pharaoh will have the link to the video clipping of pharaoh’s dead body. Such clippings (videos/images) relevant to around five hundred or more verses are all a part of the package.
Yet another feature is the RECITATION AND MEMORIZATION page. Here the user can time, repeat, delay, specify starting and ending verses, etc. For students of Quran this tool helps to memorize as well as recite Quran according to the Thajweed (Rules of Reciting Holy Quran). The Recitations include Thilawa by Sheikh AbdulRahman Al Sudais, Sheikh Saud Al Shuraim, Muhammed Ayyub, Abubecker Al Shathiri, Khalid Al Qahthani etc.
The SEARCH facility in this package is so designed that the user can easily look for subject based search or word based search both in English and Malayalam. The searched word appears in a unique red coloring. The feature also provides insight into topics like Names of Individuals mentioned in Quran, Subjects referred in Quran etc. An onscreen Malayalam keyboard is displayed for the user to form words of Malayalam Search.
Lastly, the system has a comprehensive HELP/SUPPORT system for the user. The program is so designed that people with basic knowledge in computers can
master the product features with ease and comfort. The demo version of the product is available at www.hudainfo.com. The online edition also features an exhaustive Search facility along with the Complete Translation of Holy Quran in English and Malayalam verse by verse.
