salaams :)

Does anyone own a digital Qur'an? I thought of giving it as a present to my nephew(10 yo) for his coming birthday. But it is quite costly so just wondering if it is worthy spending money on or is it just as good as the book?

here's the one i was thinking of http://www.islamicgoodsdirect.co.uk/...roducts_id/596

its always better to have a mushaf (actual book), but if your a beginner (like me), its good to have both.

well in description of the one i am thinking to buy for my nephew it says you can listen to recitation in arabic, then try and recite yourself and then compare how close your pronunciation is to original. that's the feature that i like the most because he is learning qur'an by heart both in arabic and english now mashallah and has a great passion for it.

erm..i personally think that book is much better, first start with the book and later go for the digital...to try the both ways.....

for a child...digital wud be best.....coz a way of showing islam is modern....and good listen to it...and the same time read the quran and study it...

A bro i know has one, I would only recomend it if the brother has a mushaf already, i mean the fact that he can hear the people reciting it is the most attractive feature, where as carrying the mushaf would mean that u would have to read it urself, where as even if he is tired and on a journey he can jus relax and listen while intaking knowledge.

but if i were u i would buy a cheap mp3 and then jus download the quran on it, and then he could relax and listen to it, or if he was learning he could carry a pocket mushaf and follow the recitation with the mushaf.

plus its cheaper, and it will get him used to finding ayahs and surahs quickly.

Salam aleykum

EDIT: soz thought it was a brother

Its good to have the digital Quran on the go. You can read,listen and memorize it anytime anywhere. I highly recommend the Penman Collection because they have various model. In each model has its own recitor. Sudais, Shuraim Ali Hudaify Hosairy And Saad Ghamidi.The best thing about the Penman model is that they have 3 recitation speed and u can choose which you are most comfortable with.

Trust me on this, there's nothing better than listening to Sudais or Shuraim reciting the words and then all the while reading the english translation. It's like the words mean what the english translation says to you, word by word. You can just feel that what is being said is amazing.

Everyone needs to pick one up. You'll want to keep listening over and over again, and you'll memorize like 10+ more surahs that way guaranteed.

Yeah^ Bro Samee referred me to this one:

http://www.islamicbookstore.com/a4088.html

And it is perfect. It works very well, battery life is average - good as long as you dont over use the speaker and backlight.

The sound quality isnt bad either. Overall, for $129 its a great product. Ive had it for over a year and its working perfectly Alhamdulillah.
