Quran Text Types

From Tanzil

Jump to: navigation, search

Quran texts are usually represented in two general formats:

Uthmani Script
An old-fashion script used by the third Caliph, Uthman, to produce the first standard quran manuscript.
Simple Script
Also known as Imla'ei script, is the modern Arabic writing style which is currently in use.

Tanzil Quran Texts

Tanzil provides several quran texts in two major categories described below:

  • Uthmani Script
    • Uthmani: Uthmani quran text similar to Madina Mushaf.
    • Uthmani Minimal: Uthmani text with a minimal number of diacritics and symbols.
  • Simple Script
    • Simple: Quran text in plain Imlaei script. Recommended for both display and search.
    • Simple Enhanced: Simple text with better demonstration of Ikhfas and Idghams. Simpler for reading.
    • Simple Minimal: Simple text with a minimal number of diacritics and symbols. Suitable for embedding in other texts.
    • Simple Clean: Simple text without any diacritics or symbols. Suitable for easy search.
