Preparing for Ramadan 2017: Top 3 Recommended Apps
Ramadan Legacy is undoubtedly one of the most popular Ramadan apps out there! It combines smart technology with beautiful design to give you a 30-day interactive Ramadan planner. Using the app, you can track the amount of days you’ve fasted, your prayers, Qur’an recitation and Taraweeh. The app also offers daily knowledge cards including Duas and suggestions for daily deeds. These information is captured on your personal legacy board which helps you to keep track of how Ramadan is going and reflect yearly. Lastly, the journal feature of the app allows you to record your emotions and thoughts daily whilst the live social stream helps to build a sense of community with Muslims across the world.
Qur’an IQ is arguable one of the best Qur’an apps. Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an so if you’re trying to improve your engagement with the Qur’an this is the app for you. Starting with the 30th Juzz of the Qur’an, the app helps you to understand the meaning of the Qur’an using a series of exercises and quizzes. It’s visually appealing, interactive and you can set daily targets and make the process more fun by including your friends and family. This is an excellent app for people at different levels.
Podcast: I personally use Player FM and would recommend subscribing to podcasts by Qalam, Bayyinah and Muslim Central. A podcast app is ideal for maximising your commutes and you would be amazed at how much you can learn during your commute for a month. Series on Qalam’s podcast include Life of the Prophets, Seerah of Prophet Muhammad PBUH and Imam Nawawi’s 40 Hadith.
