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

"Would you explain to me how we know that Matthew 21v22 (where Jesus promises that we will receive anything we ask for in prayer) cannot be taken literally?"

Matthew 21, verse 22 can and should be taken literally. Let's look at the passage in context: And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it will happen. And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.

"Your god, in his own holy book, admits to having created evil (Isaiah 45:7). Why then should I worship him?"

In Isaiah 45:7, the KJV translates the Hebrew word "rah" as "evil". More modern English translations often opt for the word "calamity" instead. Either one of these translations is viable and could be the intended meaning of the passage. However, that God is ultimately the Uncaused First Cause of all sinful actions is clear from both scripture and reason, so even if the verse cited does not make the point, the general concept behind the question remains.

"Why does God change His mind so much? (Gen 6:7; Exd 32:14; Jdg 2:18; 1 Sam 15:35; Jhn 3:10 etc)"

Below are the verses cited in the question. John 3:10 doesn't seem to fit the question, so I assume it was a typo. Nonetheless, the other verses should more than suffice to make the point the questioner intended. Genesis 6:7 The LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.
