This explanation of the Qur'an is colour coded so readers know where information is drawn from. Whether it is directly something from the Qur'an, a cross-reference, from another part of the Qur'an or explanations offered in the highly renowned scholarly works of Ibn Abass and Jalalayn.
The newest and most innovative addition to helping young people access the Qur'an is the use of 3D modelling, normally used in video games, to build scenic landscapes that give also reflect the spirit of verses and chapters. This will be completed throughout the coming year, God willing.
