What do you mean Quaran support. We have one in the section it belongs in our 
classifications general books. There is no need to complicate the codebase to 
make direct support for modules we already fully support. You can browse the 
Quaran, look at it next to the bible, search it, and depdending on the 
version of sword you use transliterate it. What more do you need?

It's a general book. Might not be listed on the beta page.

As already stated, we have the Hebrew old testament, but it's arranged in the
