    as i said in another post earlier in the day, you can download the fonts page-wise here:

    download the zip file from here: https://github.com/quran/quran.com-images/archive/master.zip
    it is nearly 57MB.

    ---
    1. extract the fonts folder from the zip downloaded above.
    2. there are 604 "fonts" corresponding to forms on every single page of the madinah-mus'Haf.
    3. install these fonts.
    ---

    this is my method, and if you have a better technique, please feel free to share.

    STEP-ONE
    first, identify the aayah you wish to add.

    step-1.jpg
    in this case this is aayah 63 of surah furqan


    STEP-TWO

    step-2.jpg

    i find the aayah in the mus'haf, and note down the page number on which this aayah appears.
    in this case it is page no. 365


    STEP-THREE

    step-3.jpg

    in a blank document in MS-word, in the font selection box type QCF_P365.
    notice that P365 corresponds to page #365 i have identified in the previous step.


    STEP-FOUR

    step-4.jpg

    select the "insert symbol" button - it may be on a quick access toolbar (it is customisable) or on the INSERT ribbon.

    STEP-FIVE

    step-5.jpg

    the insert symbol dialog will be displayed - you can see the portions of the ayats (one or two words are mapped to a character as a symbol).

    STEP-SIX

    step-6.jpg

    find the number 63 (corresponding to the aayah we are trying to insert) and from this box insert all the boxes [arabic is written from right to left, and this is a FONT and not actual writing; hence, these forms will be placed one after the other left-to-right; the objective is anyway achieved.]


    STEP-SEVEN

    step-7.jpg

    you can verify the aayah with that in the mus'haf to make sure that it is correctly written.
    then use cut and paste to select the aayah or part of it, in your text like so:
