An R package for the full text of the Qur'an
This package contains the complete text of the Qur'an in Arabic (with and without vowels) and in English (the Yusuf Ali and Saheeh International translations).
Each volume is in a data frame with a row for each ayah, along with 18 columns of detailed metadata (including ayah number, surah number, surah name in Arabic and English, juz', hizb, and so on), ready for text analysis.
The package contains:
quran_ar: The Qur'an in Arabic (with vowels)
quran_ar_min: The Qur'an in Arabic (without vowels)
quran_en_yusufali: The Yusuf Ali English translation of the Qur'an
quran_en_sahih: The Saheeh International English translation of the Qur'an
Surah titles in Arabic, transliterated English, and translated English are all factors to preserve the correct order.
To install the current stable version of the package, type the following:
Alternatively, you can install the development version from Github:

For some ideas on getting started with analyzing these texts, see Text Mining with R by Julia Silge and David Robinson, or Julia Silge's blog post on sentiment analysis of Jane Austen's novels. For help within R, try
?quran_ar or similar for getting started with the datasets.
Here's how to do some basic data manipulation with the data:
library(dplyr) library(quRan) quran_ar %>% group_by(surah_title_en) %>% summarize(total_ayat = n()) #> # A tibble: 114 x 2 #> surah_title_en total_ayat #> <fct> <int> #> 1 Al-Faatiha 7 #> 2 Al-Baqara 286 #> 3 Aal-i-Imraan 200 #> 4 An-Nisaa 176 #> 5 Al-Maaida 120 #> 6 Al-An'aam 165 #> 7 Al-A'raaf 206 #> 8 Al-Anfaal 75 #> 9 At-Tawba 129 #> 10 Yunus 109 #> # ... with 104 more rows quran_ar %>% filter(surah_title_en == "Al-Faatiha") %>% select(surah, ayah, text) #> # A tibble: 7 x 3 #> surah ayah text #> <int> <int> <chr> #> 1 1 1 بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ #> 2 1 2 الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ #> 3 1 3 الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ #> 4 1 4 مَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ #> 5 1 5 إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ #> 6 1 6 اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ #> 7 1 7 صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ
