I'm developing an application to teach Quran. I need some textual/lingual analysis based on a common and general corpus.

I know about King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) Arabic corpus, yet I can't find a place to download it. The original website seems to be down.

Can anyone guide me to a general purpose Arabic Corpus that can be downloaded (free or paid)?
