There is a wide selection of Qur’an apps for mobile devices, but for computers there are almost no apps that balance powerful features with a focused reading experience and beautiful interface. Qawl aims to change that—see it in action:


Qawl is a Qur’an reader made specially for desktop/laptop computers. It brings the popular and standardized Madina mushaf to digital platforms. It combines the time-tested effectiveness of the mushaf with the conveniences of technology.

It’s highlight features include:

  • Lightning-fast startup and performance
  • Ultra high-quality scanned mushaf 📷
  • Precise user-controlled zoom 🔎
  • Powerful navigation using table of contents, page flip, or direct entry 🎯
  • One-click access to recitations, tafsir and translations (online) 📚
  • Beautiful and effective design 🔮
  • Comprehensive keyboard shortcuts 🎹
  • Offline support ☁
  • Dark theme 🌙
