Dhivehi Quran Translation now available for Zekr and

UPDATE: The translation pack and is available from the Zekr website now. Download from there.

Ramazan Mubarik fellow bretheren. It gives me great pleasure to (sort of) formally announce the release of the Zekr Quranic study tool with Dhivehi localization and translation packs.

I'm also happy to announce that now hosts the Dhivehi translation of the Holy Quran for everybody to enjoy, free of charge.

This has been part of a MOSS initiative, and I'd like to thank everybody who worked on the project with me. Particularly Mohamed Malik, Bunyameen and Sobah.

As of version 1.0 of Zekr, you can select "Dhivehi" as a display language under tools->options.

The translation pack hasn't been officially sanctioned yet, we're waiting for the Presidents office to formally OK the project. Meanwhile, you're welcome to "unofficially" download and use it.

INSTALLATION is a simple three step process.

1. Download and install Zekr from
2. Download the translation pack (see link belowupdate above)
3. Run Zekr. goto Tools->add->translation and select the zip file you just downloaded.

you can now select the translation under view->translation.

and it doesn't make things easier that I actually saw this one coming and did make a backup, only to discover that my backup drive was also faulty.'s going to take me a while to get back up on my feet again. I'm probably going to have to re-do all my little projects and stuff...
