The Inline Quran

By adding one line of code to your website, you can make every reference to the Quran on your webpage display the full passage on hover, and each reference will also become a link that will take the user to quran.com.

Usage

Basic Example

Make sure that your string of Quranic references begin with either the word "Quran" or the word "Surah". Casing does not matter. Then, at the foot of your webpage, just before the closing body tag, add the following HTML code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://presuppositions.org/software/inline-quran/inline-quran.min.js" ></script>

Here is a full example of the code in use in a sample HTML page:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
     <title>Quranic References</title>
     <meta charset="utf-8" />
</head>
<body>
     <h1>Quranic References</h1>
     <p>We want to refer to the Quran. Therefore, we will. (Quran 3:12-13; 5:7,9,12; 13:2)</p>
 
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://presuppositions.org/software/inline-quran/inline-quran.min.js" ></script>
</body>
</html>

Customization Example

Limited customization is currently available. The following example shows how to hide the "about" links that point a user to our website. All of the following code should be placed at the foot of the page, just before the closing body tag.

<script type="text/javascript">
     var inlineQuran = {};
     inlineQuran.settings = {
          displayAbout: false
     };
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://presuppositions.org/software/inline-quran/inline-quran.min.js" ></script>

The Inline Quran can be seen in action on the God Contention website. If you implement it on your website, please let us know and we may link to you.

Notes

  • There are no further modification options yet available. If you would like modifications for the display, the translation, or anything else, let us know. We may be able to accommodate.

Other Writings

"If God doesn't change over time, can He know tensed facts? If not, how is He omniscient?"

A tensed fact is a fact that is true in relation to present experience, but has no universal or permanent truth value. "Yesterday was July 26th", "today is Wednesday", or "I got a new job last month" are all tensed facts. Some people believe that God must know tensed facts to be omniscient. William Lane Craig formulates a hypothetical argument that God is not timeless as follows: 1. A temporal world exists. 2. God is omniscient. 3.

"Mr. McCabe, you obviously don't read your own Bible. On the first page alone (Genesis) in the Arabic Bibles around the world the word Allah is there 17 times. YHWH was only given in Exodus, there aren't any vowels, so why did you say Yahweh?"

This question appears to be in response to my answer to the question "Aren't Allah, Brahman and Yahweh just different names for the same God?". Thanks for your comments. When I read the question "Aren't Allah, Brahman and Yahweh just different names for the same God?", my understanding was that the questioner was suggesting that it was possible that we all worship the same God, just by different names. The thrust of my argument was that we worship different Gods.

Rationalism is false: a simple proof
