Adding Quran as a separate language

Hi, I think adding the Quran as a separate language would be a really good idea, since Quran is read by Muslims everyday, so we definitely need a dataset of recorded “recitations” of the Ayat of Quran, which will be used later on to make a Speech Recognition Application to help the people that memorize Quran to quickly check their Hifdh; meaning that they would recite what they memorized, and the application will check if there are mistakes. I think that this definitely advances the aim of the Common Voice project, and is worth considering.

Show as example? This is good to consider

There are 6236 verses in the Quran in Total.

In the speak section, the contributor would see a Qur’anic verse as text, and they would recite it.For example:

Text: ﴾الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ﴿
And then the contributor should simply recite this verse, or in case they can’t recite, it is okey if they just read it.

And in the listen section, they would listen to the recitations, and check the correctness of both the recitation and the تشكيل, which is like how the words are pronounced.
