Holy Quran Reading Software for Ubuntu Linux

The best Linux software to read the Holy Quran is Zekr. You can customize it to display the Quran full screen and change the font size as you like.

To install Zekr use the following command in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install zekr
This will install Zekr under Applications -> Accessories.

To show the Quran in Arabic in a large font inside Zekr program, do the following:
  • Go to Tools, Options, View, and change quran_fontSize to 30 (or 35)
  • Go to View, Layout, and choose Quran
  • Go to View, Layout, Quran, and choose Block
It is easy to change the Zekr interface to Arabic. Under Tools, Options, General, change language from English to Arabic.

There is also Zekr for Windows and Mac OSX.

And you can always use Quran Explorer website or download the Quran as PDF file (Arabic version and English version)
