The Alim for Windows is the world's first comprehensive software for learning about the commandments in the Qur'an and for an overall study of Islam. The Alim features the complete Qur'an in its beautiful, full-color original Arabic script along with a digital recording of the recitation of the entire Qur'an (by Shaikh Mohamed Ayoub bin Mohamed Yousef) on a single CD-ROM. The Alim combines the knowledge of Qur'an, Hadith, Fiqh, Islamic subjects, history, biographical information, dictionaries, and concordances into one integrated computer program that is practical, easy-to-use and powerful.
Learn more about fundamental sources of Islam. Have your computer search thousands of pages for any word, phrase, or idea or answer almost any question about Islam in seconds. Go to any ayat (verse) of the Qur'an, any Hadith, any subject within seconds. Compare multiple Qur'an translations. Save bookmarks and references for later use. You can even copy and paste fully formatted Arabic and English text directly into your favorite word processor or print the Arabic and English text straight to your printer.
