Can read any verse of the holy book loud and clear

Come Ramzan and Koran is the fastest moving product. But this time round, it is going to sell in a different format.

The Koran reading pen has hit the market here and more than a month before Ramzan is to begin, it is making waves here.

What is so special about it? Well, the pen can read any verse of the Koran loud and clear. All one has to do is to touch it on any page or verse and listen to the Arabic version.

One can also choose the voice of famous reciters such as Abdul Rahman Al Sudais, Abdul Baset Abdu Essmad, Ali Al Hudhaifi, Sa'd Al-Ghamidi.

This is not all. Translation of the Koran is also available just at the push of a button. You can go for English, German, Urdu, Persian and French versions.

In good demand

This Chinese product is in good demand at the chains of Himalaya Book store in the city. It comes with a copy of Koran printed in rich Uthmani font, a functional manual, ear phones, charger and a Tajweed Book — all at Rs. 3,750.

“For people who do not know the Arabic script, the pen is of great help. They can learn to read Koran in the right diction. Others can also improve their recitation,” says Abdul Momin, manager at the Himalaya Book store.

The Tajweed Book is an added attraction. With the help of the pen, one can learn to pronounce the Arabic alphabets with the right intonation.

The pen has a four GB memory with TF card option to extend it. There is also the recording option and a built-in speaker with USB port.

Interestingly, the pen can read only the accompanying Koran and Tajweed Book since it connects with the special ink used in the print.

For the devout, there is something new to look forward to this Ramzan.

Hello, I have sincere suggestion here to correct pronounciation of name of holy book as 'Quran' or 'Qur'an' but it is not Koran.. Secondly it would be great if you can include this news under Technology seciton as well rather than limiting this to religious section..
