highly recommended

Cant think of how many times ive recommended this app to friends directly as well as through insta story. as a non arabic speaker, my problem has been not understanding what ive read about and this app has the feature to deliver a deeper inderstanding on certain ayat. the goal setting feature is extremely helpful as i lately set only 1 ayat a day, but reading the translation and tafsir carefully rather than reading so many of them and still not having any idea what ive read about. hoping this app reaches more person ✨

I love this app, but one small thing could be added onto…

I love this app but when you get to the end of the week it resets your spot! I want to continue reading from where I was at the week before but it completely jumped from the second Surah back to the beginning. Everything else about this app is amazing though and it is an amazing resource, especially if you have just converted/reverted as it has all the times for prayer and a compass showing you which direction the Makkah is in. Great app!

Notifications for daily verse?

Please make a way that I can control settings for daily verse notification. I would like to receive daily verse notification at a certain time.

Please make font bigger. I’m talking about the part where you have to choose the chapter. Like if I want to choose/click ‘Al Fatiha’ it is small but the font to read when you click is big. I would like to set the size font to large for that not just to read.
