The fact that one must take care of both the body’s as well as the spirit’s needs is something that has been known since the beginning of time.

What sets Al Quran apart from other applications in the Windows Phone Store?
It comes with verse-by-verse translation, has verse-by-verse recitation as well the option to do full text searches.
