Minister of Islamic Affairs, Call and Guidance; Sheikh Abdullatif Al-Asheikh launched on Tuesday the second version of mobile phone app for the Holy Quran.

The app developed for both Apple and Android users by King Fahd Holy Quran Printing Complex in Madinah.

Speaking on the occasion; Al-Asheikh said: “We are launching the second version of the Holy Quran application on the Android and Apple platforms. This is with new features and updates keeping pace with developments in modern technologies in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.”

“The application with its new updates will serve all Muslims in the world in multiple languages. It will have a profound impact on disseminating the noble message of the holy book,” he added.

Al-Sheikh stated that the King Fahd Complex for Printing the Holy Quran in Madinah is the largest press in the world for printing the Holy Quran, which is the Kingdom’s gift to the Islamic world. It was established about 36 years ago.

He pointed out that the Ministry last year, at the beginning of Ramadan, launched the application “The Holy City of the Prophet” in its first edition; more than three million people downloaded it around the world.

The application supports 13 world languages and has important features; such as options for a quick search of chapters, verse numbers, words and references. This makes browsing through social networking sites simple and easy.
