Quranic Quotes is, primarily, a collection of quotes and verses from The Holy Quran, presented in the form of pictures and words.
What and How?
This website offers verses and excerpts from The Quran against a backdrop of various images and photographs.
All the images used on this site are either taken from the public domain, or come with a Creative Commons license, or have been used after seeking permission from the respective copyright holders. We make use of various graphic editing software to place verses of The Quran on the images and then compress them for the web.
Quranic Quotes tries to follow a schedule, albeit not strictly. Allah be Willing, we attempt to post Spanish quotes every Monday and Thursday, English quotes every Tuesday and Friday, and Urdu quotes every Wednesday and Saturday.
About the Translations
The verses that we use are from various translations of The Quran in the respective language. For English, we prefer using the translations provided by Sahih International or Yusuf Ali. However, this is surely not because these particular translations of The Quran are better than that of any other scholar. Instead, the translations of Sahih International or Yusuf Ali employ a much simpler language as compared to the rest.
Just in case you are genuinely interested in reading The Quran in a language other than Arabic (say, your mother-tongue), you should consider visiting a website such as Quran.com, that offers translations of The Quran in multiple languages, including English.
How Does One Get Involved?
We are actively seeking folks to join the team. If you have some basic graphic editing skills and can create Quranic Quotes in a language other than the ones we are already offering, please get in touch.
Other that that, you can also make suggestions and requests for particular verses from The Quran using this page. Alternatively, you can post on the Facebook page, send a request/query via Tumblr, or shoot us a tweet.
We are thankful if you consider this website to be worthy of financial aid. However, if you are planning to donate funds to Quranic Quotes, we would request you to offer that very money to someone who needs it more than us — possibly a charity organization of your choosing, or the homeless man you see at the bus-stop everyday, or the orphan child who wishes to go to school!
In lieu of financial remunerations — assuming you find this website to be worthwhile — we request you to keep us in your prayers. 🙂
