Traveling during the holy month of Ramadhan can be a challenge for Muslims who need to keep track of when to pray and where, and where to find halal food.
Fortunately, technology has made our lives easier. Kompas.com has compiled four apps that would make your trip during this holy month more enjoyable.
Muslim Go is among the top-recommended applications for frequent flyers.
Featuring a directory of halal restaurants, kiblat (direction of Muslim prayer) information and a mosque finder, the app ensures that you would be able to perform your religious rituals while being away from home.
Furthermore, Muslim Go is also equipped with azan (call to prayer) and a prayer schedule, reminding users when to pray.
Muslim Mate is similar to Muslim Go as it is also equipped with halal-restaurant and mosque finders, kiblat information and a prayer schedule.
However, it also features stories of the Prophet that travelers can read on the way to their destination.
In addition to information about halal restaurants and a mosque directory, Halal Trip also offers halal travel packages to several destinations, including Japan and South Korea.
Halal Tracking was developed by lecturers from Brawijaya University in Malang, East Java.
On the app, users have access to payer times and a mosque finder, as well as information on tourist attractions and sharia-based hotels. (jes/kes)
