Bismilleh walhamdolileh wassalato wassalamo ala rasullilleh,

Assalamo alaykom,

With great pleasure I announce to you the release of the first prototype of Manarah project, it is just a prototype to show you the idea of Manarah, its version is 0.1-alpha and it contain only three hadhith in three languages from "40 Nawawi" (very known Hadith book).
Next steps after creating a team around this project are:

- Make a good design architecture for Manarah and start developing

The first scoop is only this book "40 Nawawi" for which I have 14 translations from a trusted Islamic website (Arabic + 13 other languages), then we will add other books inchalla (Bokhari, Muslim, Tirmithi...).
