Abstract

The Quran is held by Muslims to be a single-authored text, the direct words of God (Allah), conveyed by the angel Gabriel to Mohammed 1355-1378 years ago, and later transcribed verbatim to be used as the sole authoritative source of knowledge, wisdom and law. The challenge for computer scientists is to represent this knowledge, wisdom and law in computer systems: to build intelligent systems which can answer any question with knowledge from the Quran, and can help society, both Muslim and non-Muslim, to understand and appreciate the Quran.
