As salamu alaykum my dear brothers and sisters,
Eid Mubarak! 💖💖 May Allah accept our Ramadan, and help us to continue and strive for more!
This is your brother Naved returing (slightly late) with this month’s Islamic Apps + Article update:
We’ve been exploring the depths of Arabic grammar and other systems in recent months. It’s time to reflect on lighter topics, but still staying close to this blessed language:
Allah’s special blessings for non-Arabs: First, all people are equal and only rise in rank based on taqwa. But at the same time, our beloved Arab brothers and sisters have been blessed to be close in blood and language to our Master Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him.
But at the same time, Allah has given non-Arabs some unique blessings which Arabs do not get, and we must appreciate and be grateful for them – that’s the topic of this article. (And of course, Allah blesses whomever he wants and we must be grateful for what we are given – none of us deserve anything.)
Going by our schedule of one article every 2 months, this article above will be out soon next month inshaAllah 😊.
Just before Ramadan, Layl (the night worship time calculator) got a huge update: Arabic language support.
This opens it to so many Muslims who don’t speak English, but do know the language of Islam. Additionally, all the programming work done to support Arabic, also makes it easy to support any other language – and that’s the plan for the future!
If you would like to help in the future to translate Layl to your language, please hit reply and let me know! Priority is for languages with the largest number of Muslim speakers. There is of course no commitment, just a bit of work to help the Muslim community in your free time if you want 😁.
Also, work is still ongoing for Mubeen (the Quran summary app in English), but inshaAllah by next month there will be good news! Here is a quick video of the testing version 😉.
As usual, my inbox is open to any ideas, comments and feedback—just press reply!
May Allah bless you and bless others through you. May Allah save all Muslims around the world, and especially our beloved Palestine 🤲.
