Ayy*bay ,

Best so far...

I tried looking for other apps catering towards practicing Shias and I kept coming back to this one for its simplicity,layout, and accessibility. Great so far, wished it had transliteration for those who are fluent in reading Arabic. JazakAllah khair.

Love the app and new update

I love this app, it helps me pray mostly on time And i loved all new features in the new update Supplications, Ziyaraat’s, etc. I just one request that for the developer’s that please keep updating the app regularly so there will be no bugs and stuff in the app because i saw you guys last updated the app almost 5 years ago so i really hope this time you guys update the app almost regularly. And I’m facing a little bug in this new update as well where i select Azan #3 for prayers but when it’s prayer time it gives totally different azan not the one i selected so if you guys can fix that hopefully.

I wish I can give this app more than 5 stars! May Allah (Swt) and Ahlulbayt bless the developers of this app. ❤️

I love this app, but I need transliteration!

This app is everything I need to keep up with Duas, however with my waning eyesight I cannot read all the Arabic characters. Since we have so many converting here in America, it would be helpful if you added Roman transliteration for the Arabic so that English speakers could start using Arabic sooner in their Duas. Thank you and may Allah reward you for your efforts in the success of this app. Azans are beautiful!
