The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Do not set out on a journey except for three Mosques i.e. Al-Masjid-AI-Haram, the Mosque of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) and the Mosque of Al-Aqsa, (Mosque of Jerusalem)."
To set foot for this amazing trip one must be prepared and take as much advantage as he/she can of his/her time in there for worshiping, cleansing of the heart, sit in the gatherings of the Ulamah, tawaf of the Kaaba, etc.
This app was created taking into consideration the difficulties people normally go through when they want to travel to visit the house of Allah and the mosque of the Prophet. We used our own experiences and research for other people’s experience on the issues that they wanted to be solved when taking this unique trip.
The app is designed to help you before you depart to the holy land, when you are there and help you bring memories back with you by the following features:
This is the first and a very important step to your trip. What do you need? What do you have? Are the tickets done? Where is your passport? Did you remember to bring with you towels?
This feature will help you remember to take everything you need by allowing you to make your own list of things, and in case you forget something, we will remind you… an amazing companion at your hand.
Once you finished your Umrah or Hajj, or let’s just say that you are free now, would you like to see the place where the first battle of the muslims occurred? Do you want to have the reward of another Umrah? Just go and pray 2 rakah at the first masjid built by the prophet, where is it you ask? Your Companion and Friend will show you where and will tell you the story of how it happened and even advise you on what to do. For Qubah, Badr, Hira and many other places. What a friend!!
MashaAllah, you have been invited by Allah Almighty to his house and to see the resting place of His beloved Messenger, but you would like to buy souvenirs, gifts and other stuff to remind you of the amazing time you had. This Companion of yours is ready and more than happy to help you with that. It will show you where to go, and even you will make you a shopping list so you forget no one and do not waste time while shopping, remember you should spend your time in Ibadah. Your companion wants you to be quick when you are shopping so it gives you a shopping list and the location of the markets where you can go to, iSahabi is a good and caring friend.
Another major problem everyone nowadays is facing is focus. Whether we admit or not we sometimes use our phones more than we should and this even happens in the worst moments, either related to affairs of the dunia, (whilst working, meetings, studies) or affairs of the akhirah (in the masjid, during talks, time of ibadah). And in order to try to help the Ummah to use the time for dua, Quran and ibadah instead of taking pictures, scrolling on Facebook, etc., the app has something new to offer:
• Ibadah Mode
Your companion will try to help you focus on your affairs, whether being of the dunia or the akhira, by reminding you and advising you once you start using your phone. Procrastination time is over!!! Sometimes we need that friend to tell you that, and iSahabi is ready for this next step of friendship. When you feel you need to be in Ibadah mode your companion will look after you. Facebook notification? Whatsapp group memes? Twitter? If you spend more than a certain time chosen by you, iSahabi will remind you of your pledge (to stay focus on your work, ibadah, recitation of Quran, etc). We all need sometimes this friend, so why not let iSahabi be yours.
So please do enjoy your trip to the house of Allah and let us make the trip more memorable.
