Waqt Al Salaah: An essential app for all muslims worldwide
For Muslims, performing the five daily prayers or Salaah, is one of the most important daily obligations. But in a world that is increasingly getting unpredictable with the divergent nature of modern life, it can be easy to lose track of the things that keep us rooted.
That's where Waqt Al Salaah comes in. Powered by ILLIYEEN, the high-end retailer, this app, available on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, can serve as an everyday essential for Muslims worldwide. But it is more than just another prayer app for tracking Salaah times. In fact, it is designed to be a reliable companion for every Muslim, providing a host of user-friendly features and useful customisation options.
You can receive accurate prayer timings based on location, which can be set automatically or manually. The app also sends timely Salaah notifications that can easily be configured according to the user's choice. This feature is especially useful for those busy with work or other responsibilities.
The app lets Muslims from different Madhhabs (schools of thought) choose their preferred prayer time calculation method. You can also access the built-in Hijri calendar that displays Salah timings for any day of any year based on the Hijri date. The app has Arabic, Bangla and English language modes that can be toggled from the language settings for greater convenience.
For travellers, perhaps the app's most innovative and useful features are the Find Mosques Nearby and the Qibla Locator options. With the nearby mosque locator option, users can easily locate nearby mosques effortlessly if connected online. In areas where a mosque is unavailable in the vicinity, the built-in Qibla locator can be used to find the correct direction of Qibla from any part of the world.
During the sacred month of Ramadan, Waqt Al Salaah provides the daily timings for suhoor and iftar. The customisable Tasbih functionality, an amazingly useful feature, especially during this blessed month, allows users to add any Du'a they want for daily Dhikr.
Waqt Al Salaah's UI/UX design and responsiveness are also noteworthy, appearing strikingly elegant and snappy. With the latest update, you can switch to dark mode and enjoy the app's elegant design while reducing eye strain during nighttime use. Not only does this new feature look sleek and modern, but it's also practical and user-friendly. You can also choose from multiple theme colours for a more custom user experience.
In addition to its practical benefits, Waqt Al Salaah posits a deeper significance for every Muslim in a world that sometimes feels overwhelming and disconnected. This thoughtfully engineered digital tool provides a way for us to stay connected to our faith no matter where we are. Whether travelling for work or studying abroad, we can rely on Waqt Al Salaah to keep track of the correct Salaah timings in an easy and convenient way.
