Why another Quran Search Engine?

    As we know there are many Quran Search Engines available on the internet, but all of them have very limited search capabilities. is based on cutting edge search technology and offers the following unique features:
  • Search multi-word phrases that spread across more than one verse as opposed to the single verse search offered by all other Quran Search Engines. Examples: "Roman Victory", "War on Usury".
  • Synonym Search: so you don't have to know the exact words used in the translations. For example, to search for Jesus in the Quran you can use any of these variations: "Jesus", "Christ", "Messiah", "Isa".
  • Morphological Search: allows finding different variations of the word. For example, searching for "intention" will find verses using words like intends, intending, intention, intentionally, etc.
  • Exclusion: to search for verses that don't contain certain words> For example to find verses that talk about charity without mentioning Prayer use the NOT or - symbol: "Charity NOT Prayer", "Charity -Prayer".
  • "Did you Mean" suggestions for misspellings.
