Muslims around the world got a wake-up call recently about how deeply embedded the state surveillance or security apparatus is in their daily lives, even in the most mundane of ways when a bombshell report about a popular prayer app was released by Vice’s Motherboard. According to the report, ‘’Muslim Pro’’, an app with over 98 million downloads is one of the apps connected to a wide-ranging supply chain that sends ordinary people’s personal data to brokers, contractors, and the military to assist on overseas special forces operations.
The report has caused an uproar online, with many deleting the Muslim pro app and asking for its alternatives to stay updated with prayer times and the direction for prayer. This hustling period can be a lot to keep track of — the daily prayers, the exact time for each one — but what if you could get a push notification for sunset or a set of digital beads with which to count prayers?
Luckily, there are a number of other apps and digital services designed to help make a smartphone a tool for staying on track as a practising Muslim. But the one that is most accurate & authentic, functional and has the usual amenities for an Islam-oriented app — a calendar, times for each prayer — but also has handy tools to help find the closest mosque and halal joint —is ‘’Muslim Zone’’. Islamic values are central to the software development of this app. Designed for iPhone, Muslim Zone takes the Muslim principles practised in the physical world and brings them to live in the digital space. All features are created in accordance with the Islamic faith and certified by an independent and respected body as Sharia-compliant.
Designed for the whole family – this app has developed ethical software to enhance security and protect users privacy. It’s an app for every adherent of Islam that also wants to stay updated about the happenings of the Islamic World.
Muslim Zone also features full Quran with Arabic scripts, phonetics, translations and audio recitations. It is also helpful as a Qibla locator and shows the Islamic Hijri calendar. The best thing about this Muslim App is that it gives a map of halal restaurants and mosques.
