Top 10 Must-Have Muslim Apps
Lets face it. If you’re not using an iPhone, you either have an Android or a Blackberry, or are saving up to get either one.

For those of you who are still here, read on for the Top 10 Must-Have Muslim Apps that will insyaAllah help you remove the love of dunya from your hearts and replace it with the love of Allah and His Messenger instead.
Al Quran by Sayed Samad

myQuran Lite by Magnicode
Why just read the Qur’an and lose the chance to understand the beautiful verses? This app includes reviewing and analyzing the root words of the verses in the Quran. The recitations are followed by an English translation and this makes understanding your recitations better which ultimately enhances your experience while reading the Holy Book. It can be bought and downloaded by using iTunes.
Qamar Deen by Batoul Apps
This application allows the user to keep track of the good deeds done in the course of the day. From prayers to Sadaqah and even your recitations of the Qur’an! Just mark the prayers you’ve performed during the day (be it the five obligatory ones or the added sunnah prayers), how much Sadaqah you’ve given out (even a smile counts!) or how much of the Holy Book you’ve read. You can actually chart your progress in a graph-like manner and see your progress towards being a better person! Be sure to remember to note down the deeds though! But on another note, please do not misuse this application as a tool for riya’ by showing off to other people how well you’ve done. That is not exactly very Islamic is it? This app can be downloaded for free on iTunes.
Supplications – Dua for every occasion by Batoul Apps
Dua is the weapon for Muslims. We have duas for everything in life to seek Allah’s help and guidance in everything we do. This application provides the user with useful supplications for occasions and everyday interactions (e.g: going to the toilet, visiting the sick, greeting a friend etc.) at their fingertips! It can be bought from iTunes.
Singaporeans love to eat and Muslim Singaporeans are no exception. Would it not be awesome if there was an app that could just tell you the location of the nearest Halal eating outlet? This application will help users get a list of mosques, halal restaurants and markets at a place of their choice. It will also display maps, directions and contact information. You can get it at the iPhone application store. It is available for use in some countries including Singapore.

Islamic Compass Free- Prayer times and Adzan alarm by Islam Pray Institute for Quran and Qibla (Version 2.1)
Have you ever been out and about somewhere where there is no designated space for prayers? So you pick a secluded, clean spot and prepare to pray. But wait! You don’t know which direction to pray in and you’ve forgotten your compass. Well…fret not! This application enables the user to pinpoint the direction of Mecca and also comes with an adzan alert for prayer times according to your area!
iSubha: Islamic Prayer Beads by Guided ways Technologies Ltd
Zikir and Salawats are greatly encouraged in Islam. Not only does it increase our awareness and Imaan to Allah and the Prophet (peace be upon him), it also calms us down and puts our minds at ease. Usually, prayer beads or the tasbeeh/ misbaha is used as counters to keep track of the number of zikirs/salawats that is being recited but with this app, your phone can be turned into your very own set of virtual prayer beads! It also comes with known supplications or verses. Furthermore, your zikir/salawats can be customised according to your choice! This app can be bought at iTunes.
We’re sure they are tons of other apps that would help us in our deen. If they’re not featured here, let us know what they are by leaving a comment below!
A new iPhone App is worthy of addition to the list:
“Did You Pray” FREE App!
I’m surprised you don’t have either of the ones I use regularly.
iQuran – has translations in Malay as well, which is useful. Also, has downloadable Surahs read by various Qaris
alQibla – basic, but useful.
Assalamu alaikum You probably wanna try MuslimKit : http://www.muslimkitapp.com
I found Muslim Directory on iphone, ipad and Android, I think its one of the best comprehensive app designed for muslims, list masjids, muslim businesses, halal restaurants, islamic clothing stores, islamic book stores and much more. Its free, i loved that.
I’m from Brazil and use the Find Mecca android app (didn’t found a review here in appsapk.com). It’s very usefull, clean and don’t have adds (what really bothers me). A good point is that it works in every position (some apps get fuzzy when you hold straight vertical). A must have.
ALLAH Bless you all!
A new app with a many features worthy of coming into the list Muslim All in 1 https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/muslim-all-in-1/id644003933?ls=1&mt=8
another app that should be mentioned here is my app. http://www.ipraytimes.com it calculates the prayer times without internet connection.
Thank you for doing a great job with this article! I was searching for apps during Ramadan, when I found this.
I also wanted to share a couple of apps that have helped me:
Masjidtime – a really cool and innovative app where you can follow masjids, and get information from them, including things like when Ramadan starts, when iftars are happening (www.masjidtime.com/download).
Muslim Pro – a nice app that has a lot of features, including prayer times, qiblah compass, and Quran (http://www.muslimpro.com/).
Many thanks for the apps list. But I am really offended by your comment about having an android and being in love with the worldly life. That’s totally your personal way of looking at the world and your religion. You should refrain from making such patronising statements in public outlets. No hard feelings.
Brother I do not see why you were offended, each person has the right to think, understand the religion the way they like as long as long as there is no harm to others, IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE OTHERS FOR MORE SPIRTUALITY, this is not the way.
Nice Islamic App and Blog! I want to share “Prayer Counter”. It is an iPhone application that assists Muslims in counting their prayers. This app is for Muslims across the globe who miss any of their prayers because of some busy schedule or any issue. Prayer Counter is a worthwhile app to help them remember the number of missed prayers.
