Islamic Finder Provides Valuable Services to Muslims
IslamicFinder.org is a web site, which provides very useful services to Muslims around the world. It provides prayer times for more than five million cities and towns around the world. That is virtually any town or city in the world no matter how small it is. Even though we found many sites that provide prayer times, islamicfinder.org covers far larger number of cities and towns, whereas other similar web sites provide prayer times for a very limited number of cities.
Impressively the site provides the most accurate prayer times on the net. Another interesting service, which was started by islamicfinder.org, is the Athan (Azan) program which allows the Athan to be heard five times a day at exactly the prayer times. In addition to the above-mentioned services, IslamicFinder has recently opened the Islamic photo gallery, which contains thousands of pictures and images of the Holy places such as Makkah, Madinah, and mosques around the world. We can summarize the services provided by the site as follows:
1. Prayer times and accurate Qiblah direction for more than 6 million cities, towns and villages all over the world along with their distance from Kaaba (Makkah), longitude, and latitude. The site helps us in determining our five times prayers with five different calculation methods and two juristic methods. It also shows us when and how many Raka\’s (units) to pray. It is also possible to have a full printed copy of the prayer times for a full year in two pages, which can be used anywhere in the world. You can also subscribe to get monthly prayer times through email.
2. Addresses of Mosques, Islamic organizations, and Muslim owned businesses all around the globe. The site provides detailed information about each organization, such as address, telephone numbers, direction, and activities.
3. The Islamic web directory, where you can find information about Islam, Quran, Hadith, Islamic History and Biography, Fiqh and Fatawa, Muslim Family, Education, etc.
4. The Athan (Azan) software, which helps you automatically hear the Athan (Azan) from your computer five times a day for each single prayer. The software is free of charge.
5. The annual calendar, which is available (in printable format) from 1421 to 1430 Hijri and 2000 to 2012 Gregorian forms. You can also convert Hijri date to Gregorian and Gregorian to Hijri.
6. The photo gallery is a collection of thousands of pictures and images of the holy places such as Makkah, Madinah, and mosques around the world in about 50 albums and more than 20 categories. It also offers Eid, Ramadan, and several other occasions’ cards. Users can send all these photos, images, and Eid cards to others as E-cards, too. Users can use its slideshows as well.
