       zekr - A Quran study tool


       zekr [options]


       This manual page documents briefly the zekr

       zekr  is  an  open  platform for simply browsing and researching on the
       Holy Quran. It is a Quran-based project, planned  to  be  a  universal,
       open  source,  and  cross-platform  application  to perform most of the
       usual refers to Quran. The main idea is  to  build  an  as  generic  as
       possible  platform  to  accept  different Islamic resources.  Zekr is a
       free GPL software and is available for Linux/Unix, Windows, and MacOSX.

       Quran, is the only sacred writing, which claims to be  a  miracle.   It
       asserts that no one can make something like a Quran sura at all.  (from
       Al-Baqarah: 23, Younos: 38, Al-Isra: 88) If you  need  any  information
       about    common    Quranic    terms   used   in   this   software   see

       Zekr is flexible in adding new plug-ins, themes,  language  packs,  and
       Quran's  translations.   Currently  Zekr  has English, Persian, French,
       German, Arabic, Indonesian, Russian, Dutch, Kurdish, Malay, and Turkish
       built-in  language  packs.   In addition, it includes English, Persian,
       and Russian Quran translations. Of  course  you  can  simply  add  more
       translations to it.

       The  program  is written in Java, on Eclipse IDE, and SWT as the widget
       toolkit.   If   having   any   question   about   zekr,   please    see

              List  of  paths of compatible Java VMs, zekr cycles through that
              list of and picks the first one that exists.

              System-wide  configuration  file,  sourced  by   zekr   to   set
