Shia Companion

I have been searching all over to find a Shia Prayer Application and unfortunately have had no luck until a friend referred me to this App. Not only does it have prayer times as per your location but it has a calendar where you can view the important events within the Shia Islamic Calendar. There are also Ziaraat’s and Dua’s available which are super useful. The design of the App is aesthetically pleasing too!

Extremely useful

A brilliant app and so useful when working out work and other family dates that might clash with religious ones.

I use the Duas section regularly too. Really really good feature.

Recently I can’t view the event highlighted in red anymore to see what the event is. Could this be fixed?

Only a few minor things that could do with fixing,

It would be fab if audio options could be added to the duas and ziyarat section.

Also the prayer times (fajr and imsaak) are out by an hour locally here (the only one that’s out by an hour compared to the rest which are fairly similar.

Thanks to the app developers. It’s a fab app that I use daily and for the price it’s a no brainer.

Amazing app. Have been using it for the last few years. However recently, I have also had the same problem as the person above. I cannot tap on any of the event in red so I cannot tell which religious day is taking place. Is there any way to fix this problem?
