24 Hour Islam

Devotion to worshipping Allah led to Muslims in the past inventing and perfecting compasses (to find Qibla), watches (to tell Salaah time) and other items. Today it’s no different. Many items being adapted for Muslim prayer. Here are two:

Cars: Malaysia, Iran and Turkey plan to build an Islamic car fitted with a compass to find the direction of Makkah, and a compartment to keep the Qur’aan and prayer headgear in.

Cell Phones: There are several cell phones which offer features like Athaan at appropriate times, compasses linked to GPS to find Qibla, Islamic calendar and full text of the Qur’aan in Arabic with translations.
