Peter Riddell

Unique searchable software

Qurʾan Gateway is an independent, non-profit resource, aimed primarily at scholars of the Qurʾan from universities and institutions around the world.

However Qurʾan Gateway can be used by anyone. From Islamic and Western societies, journalists, policy makers, faith professionals and members of the public alike.
