Random Quran Verse Widget


This is a very simple plugin. It randomly displays a verse of the Holy Quran on your widgetized sidebar.

I know there are a few others that due this, but those rely on an external service. This plugin has one text file
that has all 6000+ verses and it just picks one randomly and displays it. Nothing fancy.


I keep getting the error: [function.file]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in xxxxxxx

You need to make sure that ‘allow_url_fopen’ is be ON in PHP configuration (php.ini). Create a text file and call it
php.ini and add the line:

allow_url_fopen = 1
