Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThe growing number of the Muslims in the world has created remarkable demand for reliable and readily available sources and resources for Islamic knowledge in the Internet. This has motivated and continues to motivate goodwill individuals and or organizations to upload Islamic resources to the Internet. Among these resources, Quran Tafseer occupies a unique importance due to the fact that Quran is the first and the main source of Islamic sciences. However, Scholars, Muftis and knowledge seekers are faced with the problem of gathering related information from different sources with diverse contents written in different languages. Furthermore, some sources, in general, and of the Tafseer, in particular are not trustworthy and may disseminate and publish fallacious information about the religion. Consequently, there is a real need for an infrastructure that gathers all the Quran Tafseer resource in one trusted location and provides Scholars and Muslims in general an interface to access, retrieve, and deal with these sources as one big source. This paper proposes a grid-based architecture that offers Scholars and Muslim public a Quran Tafseer platform to facilitate the search and the retrieval of information from different sources. Grid technology is deployed to increase the performance and the efficiency of the information retrieval process.
