Having noticed the DS Bible that was released recently, I was chatting about it to a Muslim friend who wondered if a similar homebrew program was available for the Qur'an... I've checked the more popular DS homebrew sites and haven't come up with anything so this thread is pretty much a last-ditched attempt to see if anybody is aware of a copy of the Qur'an for the DS.

Any help is much appreciated

I think the odds on me being converted are remote (hail The Flying Spaghetti Monster!), I'm just trying to help a friend out. I didn't think there was one but it doesn't hurt to ask.

I'm pretty sure this is a joke, but I would actually be interested in this. I imagine CoS would sue the hell out of you if you tried to give away something for free, though.

EDIT: And this guy converted the Book of Mormon to DSBible format, so somebody with a bit of time on their hands should be able to do the Qur'an, too.

but found a very nice Quraan made in Flash:

QUOTE(fischju @ Aug 20 2008, 08:05 AM) You could get it in .txt and read it with one of the usual book readers

No, .txt can't handle Quraan

I seriously don't see the point of these holy books on ds, dont get me wrong I'm religeous too(Hindu). But what DS owner gets the urge to pray while they're out and about?

It's fairly new, but in my area, people have started congregating together and praying, in buildings they've built specifically for this purpose, which they call churches. I guess it hasn't hit your area yet.

I seriously wouldn't be surprised if the only reason was to play the DS in church and when they get caught to switch to this as an excuse.

Actually I think the various religious texts on the DS is a great idea... I mean instead of carrying around a huge book, why not have that book readily available on your DS.

So far I have been using DS Bible to read for my religion class in college, and it's much easier carrying it around than carrying around the 6"x8"x4" Bible.

Oh yeah, I just found this:

So if you could format the Qur'an you could add it into DS Bible.

Aren't most Muslims really insistent on having original Arabic texts to accompany translations of the Quran? The problem is, does the DS even support Arabic?

if you want a qur'an on your DS , do this :

1. download the file here--> http://www.hilalplaza.com/Quran_Hadith_Download_Page.html
2.then Convert PDF to Jpeg
3. Download Comic Book DS or Image Viewer
4. Convert Jpeg into ipk or CBDS
5. Put it all on your DS flash CArt

thats how i got mine . either that or with the DSBible explained above
