iSubha: Islamic Prayer Beads Reinvented, there’s an app for just about anything!

You can make money off Muslims by creating just about anything, as long as it’s halal of course.islamic-prayer-beads-reinvented.jpg

All you iphone lovers that are trying to get your dhikr on, well let me just say there’s an app for just about anything, seriously.

haha! This is definitely technological innovation, but is it religious innovation?

It’s called the iSubha, one of my friends had it on his iphone and I was initially surprised but then I realized if we have automatic wudu washers then come on, welcome to the world.

Anyways, whatever your opinion is on this, here are some screen shots of the app. I’m still a blackberry crackberry user, so I still do dhikr the traditional way =).

Search the app store, not sure where it is exactly.

    hmm…i do like the sound of this but im not a techy and also i have something better for you InshaAllah. the following are 3 sound ahadith referred to by Imaan Al-Shawkaani, which show that using the fingers to count are much better and rewarded by Allah rather than using the beads or other facets of counting dhikr InshaAllah. I'm not saying that it is haraam because it isn't haraam but there is that which is better and we should strive to do what is better InshaAllah.

    1 – From Yusayrah, and she was of the Emigrants, who

    related: Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon him, said to

    us: “Take to saying lå ilåha illa’Llåh, sub˙åna’Llåh and

    sub ˙ åna’l- maliki’l- qudd¥ s, and be not negligent and so

    be deprived of divine mercy. Count on your fingers, for

    they shall be questioned and be made to speak.”2

    2 – Sa‘d b. Ab• Waqqåß relates that he, along with Allah’s

    Messenger, peace be upon him, visited a woman who

    had infront of her some datestones or pebbles on which

    she was counting the glorification of Allah. So he said

    to her: “Shall I not inform you of something that would

    be easier or be better for you than this? Say: Glory be to

    Allah ( sub ˙ åna’Llåh) as many times as what He created

    in the heavens. Glory be to Allah as many times as what

    He has created on earth. Glory be to Allah as many times

    as what He created between them. Glory be to Allah as

    many times as what He is creating. Then Allah is greater

    (Allåhu akbar) a like number of times; then Praise be to

    Allah (al˙amduli’Llåh) a similar number of times; then

    There is no deity worthy of worship save Allah (lå ilåha

    illa’Llåh) a like number of times; then There is no might

    nor power except Allah (lå ˙awla wa lå quwwata illa

    bi’Llåh) a like number of times.”

    3 – Safiyyah relates: Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon

    him, visited me whilst I had infront of me four thousand

    datestones upon which I was counting glorifications. He

    said: “Do you count glorifications on these? Shall I not

    teach you what surpasses this?” I replied: Teach me. He

    said: “Say, sub˙åna’Llåh ‘adada khalqihi – Glory be to

    Allah as many times as what He has created.”

    That is awesome! What a cool islamic app.

    A friend I know has an app called iAthan.

    It has prayer timings, and recites the athan at each time.

    She also has iQuran!

    The iPhone is ridiculously amazing. 🙂
