TASBEEH- keep count of your recitations
Next on our list is the highly popular and efficient tasbeeh app. As the name suggests, this app works just like a real tasbeeh and allows you to pray at any time. Before the introduction of this app, Muslims were bound to use traditional tasbeehs. Although efficient at a young age, the traditional tasbeeh becomes quite irrelevant as a person grows old. This is because it's harder to keep track of time and the number of recitations that you have already recited.
The tasbeeh app is a digital masterpiece and allows you to see the number of times you have recited something. You can also continue from where you left off at any time.
15 line Hafizi Quran-for the brave
Hafizi Quran, people who have memorized the Quran, are revered in Islam. They are not only treated with respect by their peers and their family in this world, but Allah has promised a great reward for them in the hereafter.

Similarly, buying groceries in these countries can also be quite challenging.

In an instant, you will know which item is halal and which isn't. How great, isn't it?
