On-Line Islamic Literal Textual Search Page

This page is intended as an on-line resource for literal textual searches, principally on Islamic texts.

All these PERL-CGI search engines search for 'literal phrases'. As well as straight-forward searches like 'gog and magog', the Search Engines can also make intelligent searches like 'Allah .* Messenger .* believers' , which would search for a paragraph/section where Allah is first mentioned, then Muhammad, then after that, believers.

Searches are NOT case sensitive.

I have improved it from the home-brew original scripts in that the beginning of the phrase is matched for a word boundary but not the end . So a search for 'ape' will find 'apes' as well, but not 'grape'.

Thanks for visting and I hope you find your visit useful and please feel free to submit any comments or suggestions .
