Zekr is an open platform Quran study tool for simply browsing and researching on the Holy Quran. It is a Quran-based project, planned to be a universal, open source, and cross-platform application to perform most of the usual refers to Quran. The main idea is to build an as generic as possible platform to accept different Islamic resources.

Here are a few features in Zekr:
  • Powerful search
  • Bookmarking and Multiple Bookmark set
  • Uthmani Theme (try different Arabic fonts)
  • Quran translation and aya-by-aya commentary
  • Presentation
What's New
Version 1.0.0:

New features or enhancements:

  • All 13px icons change to 16px size.
  • A number of icons changed to have a more harmonic icon set in Zekr.
  • Zoom in/Zoom out will only work on Quran OR translation if applied in separate layout. Otherwise both Quran and translation text size is increased/decreased.
  • Zoom in/Zoom out will not change sura name font size.
  • Prevent AudioPlayerForm to get out of view (some limitations are applied to its location).
  • Show only language in translation list menu. Show the same info at multi-translation configuration form.
  • Added a new property: trans.name.mode = english | localized. It then shows either translation English name or its localized name wherever a translation data is referenced (e.g. in multi-translation config form or in translation menu).
  • (Windows) A new exe launcher added: WinRun4J. zekr.exe and zekrc.exe parameters can be configured through related .ini files.
Bug fixes:
  • Save As button will now save search result if current view shows a search result.
  • Changing between Block/Line-by-Line mode in Translation-only layout will now work.
  • Save AudioPlayerForm new location as it closes. It now saves the new location before Zekr is closed (previously it wasn't saved when Zekr was closed and AudioPlayerForm was in open state).
  • A few changes and bug fixes in quran-properties-en.xml, thanks to Yahya Saturday.
