Industrial Revolution 4.0 becomes the driver of innovation like Augmented Reality. Nowadays, Augmented Reality is applied in the education area to prompt and enhance students’ learning ability. Islamic education is not spared from this; innovations in Islamic educational materials should be enhanced so that students are able to learn better, especially among the special needs students. Hence, this research work is aimed at developing an integrated software model, which can assist the Quran memorization among the hearing-impaired students. This proposed prototyped model is based on Augmented Reality Based Content (ARBC). It is called mAR-Quran and it meets the Augmented Reality environmental development requirement. It enables the students to arrange the sequence verses of surahs in the correct order so that eventually, they memorize verses of Quran better and easier.
