The inspiration to create the app
according to him was to reconnect Muslims to the consciousness of Allah while using their phones on the social media or internet as a whole because the modern expanding world of internet and social media have begum to get people’s attention than their purpose in life.
He believes people sometimes completely forget dhikr( remembrance of Allah) and other Ibaadah when using the phone on the social media. The app does dhikr, remembrance of Allah every 30 minutes, and the user is meant to repeat the dhikr after the app does. It detects time and translates it in Arabic. The app is also intelligent to determine moment of time to advise the Ibaadah users should do or prepare for with hadith evidence. You can also choose from the color themes for app customization.
The app is already on the play
