Apps That Every Muslim Traveller Should Have

As a Muslim, travelling far away from home surely must have brought upon certain challenges: What are the local prayer times? Which direction to pray towards? Are there mosques nearby? Is the food Halal?

Surely, now that we have smartphones and various apps available, these problems can be easily addressed! To start you out, here are some apps that will make the lives of Muslim travellers easier.

1. Muslim Pro

This is one of the most popular apps in the Muslim community. It is currently used by millions of Muslims around the world. One of the most useful features is its ability to show the Qiblah, which is the direction of the Kabah. But it can do more than that. Not sure about the local prayer times? This app will list out the local prayer times based on your current location, so you will never be unsure again. A real lifesaver indeed!

What’s more, this app makes suggestions for the nearest mosques too. It even goes to the extent of sharing whether there’s a separate room for the ladies to pray, making it an extremely informative app.

3. Halal-Navi

This all-in-one app has a variety of information that Muslim travellers could possibly need, from Halal restaurants to prayer rooms and also Muslim-friendly hotels. It depends on its users to contribute recommendations and review places. As it is a fairly recent addition to the market, it is still growing its base of information. The community that is active on Halal-Navi is more concentrated in the Asian regions and it is therefore mostly recommended when you are travelling around Asia.

4. Ayah-a-day
