Serving the Noble Qur'an is considered to be one of the most honourable actions there is.

Anas ibn Malik reports that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "There are seven actions whose benefits continue to be received by their author in his/her grave after his/her death, and (this applies to) anyone who teaches knowledge, flows a river, digs a well, plants a palm tree, builds a mosque, bequeaths a copy of the Quran, or leaves behind a child who asks forgiveness for his parents after their death".

Donation (Waqf), by definition, is characterized by continuity and consistency. However, certain conditions must be met in order for the donation to last as long as possible. Among these conditions:

The legal aspect: Quranforsoul ensures strict compliance with legal requirements.

The financial aspect: investment management is delegated to professionals in order to maintain the endowment fund and obtain sufficient returns. These professionals are subject to rigorous control to ensure that they fulfil their obligations in the interest of the project.

Quranforsoul is committed to printing and distributing a copy of the Holy Quran 12 months after the beginning of the investment process (a financial cycle).

All kinds of contributions are accepted, provided they serve the specific objectives of the project. These contributions, whether for fund shares or to improve management and operations, are welcome.

The project has the following multi-level control mechanism:

First level: the project only deals with companies that are subject to controls by the legal authorities in the countries in which they work.

Currently, the project focuses on printing printed copies of the Noble Quran. However, it is possible to reproduce the Noble Quran on other media and computer means.

The issue of distribution is managed according to the needs identified on the basis of studies and consultations; it is therefore difficult to guide the distribution process according to the donor's requirements. However, in some cases where the number of shares is high and the identified territory covers a large region, specific distribution requirements will be possible.

The project has unique characteristics, including:

  1. "The share" refers to the smallest possible value for contributions that achieve a certain result. This means that for each "share", a Noble Quran will be printed and distributed each year, as far as possible and based on the results of the investments.
  2. The project has a flexible and innovative investment process, which ensures sufficient returns in the medium and long term.
  3. The project seeks to maintain continuity in its action in favor of the Noble Quran by complying with rigorous financial, administrative and technical criteria.
