It is often the case that you may want to refer to the same verses of the Qur’an or perform the same search on multiple occasions. To save you having to retype references or search commands, Qur’an Gateway allows you to create bookmarks, similar to the function built into many web browsers.
Next, click the button at the top-right of the verse browser window.
A box will pop open, asking you to give this bookmark a name:
We recommend something meaningful and memorable, as that will make it easier to remember if you’re later doing things like restricting a search to a bookmark.
Once Qur’an Gateway confirms the bookmark has been created, return to the home page (click 'HOME') on the menubar at the very top of the page). If you now click 'Bookmarks' below the main search field, the bookmark manager draw will pop open. It looks like this:
From the bookmarks list, you can do a number of things:
- Click on the bookmark's name to insert the list of verses (or the search command) it have saved directly into Qur’an Gateway's search field. (After which you can just press ENTER to look up those verses).
- Click the icon to insert the bookmark's name into Qur’an Gateway's search field. This can be useful if you wish to type a bookmark name as part of a RANGE restricted search, for instance.
- Click the icon to rename the bookmark.
- Click the icon to delete the bookmark. (If you wish to delete all your bookmarks, simply scroll to the bottom of the list of bookmarks and click 'Delete All Bookmarks').
If you wish, you can also simply type a bookmark's name manually into Qur’an Gateway's search box and hit enter to look up those verses.
If you have forgotten what a bookmark refers to, simply hover your pointer over the bookmark name and a tooltip will remind you.
You can also view your entire list of bookmarks by choosing ‘My Bookmarks’ from Qur’an Gateway’s ‘My Profile’ menu.
