Road to Makkah: Essential app features for pilgrims

After more than two years of the pandemic, more than 14,000 pilgrims from Malaysia will finally make their journey to Makkah to fulfil one of the five pillars of Islam.

As Muslims from all around the world congregate in Saudi Arabia during this holy month to perform Hajj, use Muslim Pro app’s virtual guide to experience this once-in-a-lifetime moment. The world’s most popular Muslim lifestyle app Muslim Pro provides holistic features that can aid Muslims through their holy journey. Key features include:

Duas for travelling

Regardless of how much you plan, travelling can be unpredictable with unexpected issues or delays. Luckily, we have a dua for almost everything – be it prayers for sneezing, eating, sleeping, travelling, and even specific prayers to recite during Hajj. Easily access these duas based on the category at any time or place (even on the plane) with just a tap of the finger on the Muslim Pro app. 

Accurate prayer times based on location

When travelling across different time zones, figuring out the prayer times can prove to be a tricky task. The Muslim Pro app can determine accurate prayer times based on your GPS location, so you will be alerted on when to pray, wherever you travel to.

Qibla compass

While pilgrims will perform their prayers where the direction of the Qibla is already indicated, there might be instances where they will have to perform their prayers elsewhere without the Qibla direction already marked. To address such situations, the Muslim Pro app uses the latest in augmented reality to help users find the right direction of the Qibla in Makkah.

Hajj and Umrah Guides

Be guided through the Hajj and Umrah experience before embarking on your journey to Makkah with Muslim Pro’s Hajj and Umrah Guides. The feature is aimed at educating travellers by providing a step-by-step guide on the key sites, rituals and prayers to be carried out throughout your Hajj and Umrah journey. The Hajj resource and guides are available in five languages: English, Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Melayu, French, and Arabic.

Community feature for prayer requests

The Muslim app also comes with a community feature to connect Muslims around the world by posting prayer requests as well as making out prayers to our brothers and sisters in need. One prayer can make a world of difference to someone. While Allah SWT showers His blessings in the sacred places of Makkah and Madinah, you can help to pray for others whether you know them or not.

Makkah Live Stream
