As we are all well aware that the holy month of Ramadan is upon us,(jisko nahi bhi pata tha, usko Ramadan prize shows se pata chal hee gya hoga), most people are trying their best to lose bad habits and take up new ones like praying on time, or reciting the Holy Quran. However, there are some people who do not have enough time in their day to work on the positive things they want to add to their life; for example, some universities are still open in Ramadan, and students can’t afford to slack off in studying.
Lucky for us, technology is always there to make our lives a little easier and help us in keeping track of our habits. Here are 5 apps that will make you more efficient, in all aspects, this Ramadan.
1. iQuran Lite
During Ramadan, most people try to recite the Holy Quran more regularly. We often find ourselves in situations, like in a bus, where we would rather spend that time reciting the Quran. iQuran helps you have a virtual and easily portable Holy Quran. This app makes it easy for you to search for a specific surah quickly, whenever you want. This app also has translated versions of the Holy Quran, and a full set of audio recitation files.
2. Athan Ramadan
We often find ourselves asking around among our friends about Azaan timings and end up spending time searching for them online. Athan Ramadan is amazing app that would keep you updated about prayer timings based on your location, by sending you notifications. This app has a cool feature called, Mosque Finder, which you can utilize to find the mosque nearest to you. In addition to all of this, you can get a calendar and a Prayer Book to keep track of your prayer performance.
3. Muslim Pro – Ramadan 2017
Muslim Pro is an app that combines essential features from the other apps in this list. This app includes a compass to find the direction of the Qibla, an Islamic calendar, and prayer timings. Muslim Pro has the option of sending you audio notifications of the Azaan, on prayer times in your area, along with a virtual Holy Quran, that also has audio recitation files. Additionally, this app also has a tasbih to help us keep track of our zikr and is available in numerous languages, which include Urdu.
4. Ramadan Legacy
Ramadan Legacy also has many of the features mentioned in the apps above, but what makes it stand out is the fact that it has a journal that you can use to record your thoughts and set goals during the month of Ramadan. It also provides you with a platform called Ramadan Reflections where you can share your Ramadan stories with users from all over the world. Furthermore, this app has a knowledge library which users can consult in case they have questions or want to learn about different topics.
When the month of Ramadan starts, most of us hope that by Eid, we would have lost at least a couple of kilos, but when the time comes, we end up realizing that we have gained weight instead of losing it. To solve this problem, we can use MyFitnessPal to keep track of our calorie intake as we nonchalantly munch on our samosay, pakoray, dahi ballay, etc. (We all know that list is way too long) This app also tells you about the exercise you could do to stay on track to losing some weight during Ramadan. In addition to that, this app has a huge food database, with over 6 million items.
If you use any of these apps, feel free to share your experience with us. Wishing you and your family Ramadan Mubarak.
