For all Muslims, the month of Ramadan is a significant one. A month of giving, a period of reflection, and a time to purify the body and mind. As Muslims around the world ready themselves to observe fasting throughout this period, modern technology has also stepped in to help make the month productive for all those practicing.

Here are some useful apps for almost every single aspect related to the holy month of Ramadan, be it waking up before dawn, making sure you’re getting enough nutrition for the day, keeping track of prayer times, or being home on time to break fast with your family.

Have a blessed and fulfilling Ramadan!

Similar to Muslim Pro, Ramadan 2015 is a comprehensive guide to the holy month. Built with a clean, minimalist design, it allows users to navigate easily from the Ramadan Time and Calendar page to set an alarm to mark the breaking of fast. It’s easy to use, nice on the eyes, adaptable if you’re travelling, and can be used without Internet connection. Win.

4. Mosques@SG

If you’re looking to break fast at a certain mosque, or are simply searching for the nearest one to do your prayers, this is the solution. It’s incredibly handy as well if you are someone always on the go: wherever you are, Mosques@SG gives you local prayer times and maps out the mosques for your locality and convenience.

5. MyFitnessPal

Going without water and food during the day means lacking the usual amount of nutrients. Keep track of what you’re eating each day with this nifty app that calculates your calories. Key in what you ate into the app — whether it’s chicken rice or Campbell soup — and the database automatically turns up all the info (yup, even Indomie).

Meaning ‘eyes’ in Arabic, Ainun is essentially a photo app that allows you to beautify your pictures with embedded weather forecasts, location tagging, words in calligraphy font, and the sorts. A little bit hipster, it would be a fun project to document your Ramadan month with Ainun, we think.

7. Zakat.SG

Zakat is an important act Muslims perform during the month, and is the determined share of wealth prescribed to be distributed to those entitled to receive it. There’s a lot of confusion on how much exactly a person must donate, and the Zakat calculator might assist with that.

8. Ramadan Achievements

9. iQuran

In Islamic tradition, Ramadan was the month the Quran was first revealed, so many Muslims take this opportunity to recite the holy book throughout the month. The app offers the full text and audio of the Quran, including the English translation.
