FAVORITE ISLAMIC/MUSLIM APPS ON IPHONE

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ 
"In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful." 

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
 "May peace and blessings of Allah be upon you." 


Here are my three favorite Muslim apps for iPhone. I think these apps are enough for me and I'll tell you why I love them so much.

1. Muslim Pro
This app is everything. It has a:
- Qiblah finder
- prayer time which automatically adjusts the time of prayer according to where you are in the world
- mosque finder
- halal restaurant finder
- collection of Duas
- tasbih
- zakat calculator
- digital Quran (with free 10 mins audio, full recitation if you pay for premium)

I got the premium for about USD 7 just because I love this app so much.

2. Athan
Almost like the Muslim Pro, it has a:
- Qiblah finder
- mosque finder (but only 50 mile radius)
but that's it. The reason why I downloaded the app is because it has a prayer log and you can review your prayer activity/habit.

3. Ramadan Legacy
Think KPI (Key Performance Indicator). This app logs:
- Tarawikh prayers
- your five daily prayers
- read juz
- days fasted (great for women to remind how many days we've missed when that time of the month drops by)
- goals (for example, this Ramadan, you want to read a story of a Prophet)
and it has a live news feed of other Ramadan Legacy users which motivates you to become a better
Muslim.

Now I'm just waiting for Ramadan Legacy 2016.

I hope you find this beneficial.

Much love,
Naqiyah.

DU'A BETWEEN TWO SUJUD (PROSTRATIONS)


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ
"In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful."
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
"May peace and blessings of Allah be upon you." 
  
In between the first and second sujud (prostrations), I sit and recite this doa:

 رب ﺍﻏﻔﺮ ﻟِﻲ ﻭَﺍﺭﺣﻤﻨﹺﻲ ﻭَﺍﺟُْبرﻧﹺﻲ وارفعني ﻭَﺍﺭﺯﻗﹾﻨﹺﻲ ﻭَﺍﻫْﺪِﻧﹺﻲ وعافني واعف عني

Rabbighfirli warhamni wajburni warfa'kni warzuqni wahdini wa'afini wa'kfu 'anni
 
"O my Lord forgive me,
bless me with Your Mercy,
fulfill my needs,
elevate my status, 
give me sustenance,
give me guidance,
bless me and forgive me."


والله أعلم
"Allah knows best."
