Introducing is a website for assembling and sharing Quranic topics. If you've ever searched the Quran for all the ayat relating to a certain topic, this website allows you to save your search results for future reference, as well as share it with others.
The way it operates is very simple. First you choose a title for the topic. Then, you add the ayat you gathered using the sura and aya numbers. Once saved, the topic can be viewed from the front page. The url for the topic can be shared and viewed by everyone.
A search box is available that allows the user to search for topics containing a specific word. It's currently limited to exact matches on whole words.
To be able to add topics, logging in is required. The website uses Google accounts for user authentication. When you click the log in link, You'll be directed to Google's log in page, in which you can log in with your Google account. You can also create a new Google account from this page. After logging in, you'll be redirected back to the website.
The user will be able to edit and/or delete the topics he/she created, but not those created by other users.
It is worth mentioning that there are many good websites offering Quranic topics and ayat classifications. This website is not meant to compete with any of them. If a topic is already covered, there should be no need to recreate it in here. This website can be a medium where new topics can be created and shared.
One simple rule though, the topics created on this website have to conform to the proper teachings of Quran, and should not be speculative or interpretive in any way.
Go ahead and give it a try, and please send any ideas or feedback to the email group, the link for which can be found on the website.
