About Us

Discover technology-based resources to connect with the Quran in these modern times.

Our Vision

The Quran is a miraculous gift given to mankind. We envision reviving the position of the Quran - and hence Allah's guidance ultimately - to become central to a Muslim's daily life, and not just ceremonial or cultural.

That's why we started Quran Academy with a vision to become a one-stop centre of articles, resources, courses and apps that help make the Quran a positive and central part of your daily life.

Our Mission

We strive to combine both technology and the power of human relationships to help you learn, love and live the Quran. All our resources, products and services are carefully designed to combine technology with social connection and access to experts that makes engaging with the Quran daily super-easy and beneficial, Insha'Allah.

We pray that our efforts will help make it easy for the everyday, busy Muslim like you to benefit from the greatest miracle, the Holy Quran.

Our History & Awards

Quran Academy was founded in May 2014 by Bilal Memon, a Quran Hafiz and entrepreneur. After receiving a grant from Start-Up Chile, the largest startup accelerator in the world, and with the additional support of a successful IndieGogo campaign to raise initial funds for development, Quran Academy's first Quran memorization app for the iPad was released in January 2015.

Quran Academy was then accepted to participate in MaGIC's Accelerator Program, the largest startup accelerator in South East Asia based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where our focus shifted to develop a smartphone Quran memorization app for Android and iPhone targeted for the everyday Muslim.

These achievements and vision also earned Bilal Memon the 1st place award of "Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah International Prize for Entrepreneurship" under the Centennial Fund, Saudi Arabia, in November 2015. Additionally, Quran Academy participated in the World Islamic Economic Forum Startup Idealab in Kuala Lumpur in 2015.

In May 2016, the Quran memorization smartphone app 'Quran Companion' was released after over a year of research and development. From this platform, Quran Academy then expanded to provide further resources, courses and premium training that take advantage of modern technology and leverage the power of human relationships to help the Ummah reconnect with the Quran.
