How quickly time flies…just about three weeks ago Ramadan began and Muslims around the world commenced their first fast and today it is approaching its last ten days. Now of course we all know that fasting is important spiritually as it teaches us to be patient, be self-aware, and to have restraint (“O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint.” al-Qur'an 2:183). But did you know there are many physical and mental benefits of fasting?

Let’s start with physical benefits:

Bloggers, writers, and any other content creators: How do you currently add ayaat to your content? Highlighting the text on a website and then copy and pasting, or worse, transcribing from a physical text? We've inshallah simplified your efforts. Alim.org now has a button on the homepage on the "Goto Quran" tab that copies the arabic and english translation of whatever ayah you have selected which you can subsequently paste into any document you are working on. Choose from plain text or html.

Alhamdulilah, we're very pleased to announce that we've added Tafsir Ibn Kathir in english to Alim.org.

The arabic and english translation of the ayaat are displayed above each section of the tafsir and the navigation works fairly smoothly. We're excited because we feel this is the best presentation on the web for this particular tafsir thus far. Please let us know if you find any bugs and spread the word!

Excitement

When a tried and tested product jumps into the 21st century, you can't help but feel excited about it. This is the exact emotion I'm feeling as I test drive the Alim.org website. I saw some of the familiar (from the 90s!) and lots that was new. But there is so much to explore, that I've only touched the surface. So I thought to myself...why not share my experiences of Alim.org as I Iearn more about the site?

Assalamualaykum,

I recently read a long healthy discussion on the topic of Infallibility of Prophet (saw) on the website Alim.org. This is a humble effort to clarify. Let us overcome our emotion, be objective, factual and deductive  inshaALLAH. We all love the prophet and that is must; it is an academic discussion only.

Assalamualaykum,

I’m excited to announce we’ve added recitation to the calligraphy pages on Alim.org. This is great news for those users who prefer reading the Quran from the calligraphy pages which are replicas of pages from a generic mushaf that most people will find familiar. Listen to your favorite recitation while the ayah being recited is highlighted on screen for your convenience. Visit Alim.org and navigate to Quran -> Calligraphy and check it out. Don’t forget to let others know – the best Quran recitation site on the web just got better!
