That’s a great tool.
Jazaka Allah (s.v.t) Khairaa.
Wonderful and very useful tool. May Allah bless you for providing this to all Muslims.
Would it be possible to add a magnetic Qibla Direction indicator?
http://www.magnetic-declination.com/ has a SOAP api available. (you need to contact the webmaster). Maybe this could be used as a data source.
Nice suggestion. However, please be advised that magnetic compasses are not reliable for detecting exact qibla direction, mainly due to constant changes in Earth’s magnetic field. You can use a GPS or a Map-based tool like eQibla instead.
Asalamu Aleykum Warahmatoellahi Wabarakatoeh,
Barakallahu to you all,
Could the Prayer Times be somehow integrated in the same elegant way into your website (with the same quality of documentation)?
Waaleykum Salaam Warahamatoellahi Wabarakatoeh.
Jazak Allah Kheir.
It is a great great tool
Thanks so much for this great website. I am an architecture living in an Islamic country, and your website has helped me a lot, as I am now able to easily find qibla direction before starting to design a new building. Thanks a lot!
Amazing dispatch i must say that was worth reading
That’s a good program, Thank you so much
Your iPhone app is very useful and thanks for providing free or charge. As a user of the iPhone 3Gs I am eagerly awaiting the release of the update which uses the phone’s built in compass. Any news when this is available?
Salamalaikum brother TA
Inshallah we will release the next version asap it’s already built and under test, the submission should make it .. test days + 14 days
Your qibla direction software shows the wrong direction from Tokyo, Japan. Instead of pointing to Saudi Arabia it points to Russia. It can be clearly seen if you zoom out the map. Not sure if anyone has noted this from any other location.
Salaam Alaikum Br. Tanvir,
The correct qibla direction in Tokyo is towards NW. The reason is explained here: http://eqibla.com/docs/. You can use the interactive map at the end of the page to see the two different interpretations of qibla direction for your location.
Hope it helps.
asalaam, i wanted to know if you are planning on releasing the qibla direction app for the palm pre. Many thanks…
No short plan for palm at the moment.. maybe some time in future.
asalaam i hope you guys release something for the palm pre soon, at the moment there is only two islamic app ”the holy quran” and good muslim which is a prayer time table they all started of as homebrew, i saw the qibla direction app on my mates iphone and thought the app was fantastic. Just remember us Pre users , many thanks for the reply.
Allahu-Akbar! May you be granted jannath for your incredible work the iPhone app is absolutely staggeringly fast! It’s just mind blowing how quickly it finds location and displays Hybrid satmap. Much faster than even the normal google maps! Amazing app
awsome app by an awsome person
Please update the iphone App to accommodate the compass function.
Thank you for such great tools,
Inshallah, the app is in its final stages of the release, we are sorry for the delay. You will see the update shortly.
Dear Brother, It is indeed a great job. Allah will grant you ajre azeem
By far the best iPhone app for prayer times / qibla. Quick suggestions:
* Give an option in settings to bypass the splash screen, and allow for us to go straight into the prayer times.
* Highlight the next prayer time in the prayers list, instead of just listing it in small font at the bottom.
All in all an excellent app that I use multiple times a day.
Walekum Salam Shahid,
iPhone would take time to load the application regardless of the splash screen, so it doesn’t really make a difference if we have a splash screen.
Inshallah, in future when the UI is redesigned, I will keep the countdown timer suggestion in mind.
Amazing app.Please make it available for phones using the Android system.
Inshallah I’m planning to when the Nexus One is released in Australia
Jazakallah for this magnificient tool to utilise. It is extremely helpful, especially with me travelling alot.
If it is possible, please design one for windows mobile (above 6.1) as alot of brother I know (including my self) can use this on the go. If also possible, create prayer timings in each region with the option of madhabs to choose from (option of update will be bonus).
Jazakallah, once again. The reward of this is unrecordable as it creates numerous number of times to be used throughout the whole world.
Jazakum Allah (s.v.t) Khairaa.
Is there some way to collaborate on these projects?
This is simply a great tool for muslims to find Qibla. Thanks a lot for building such a wonderful tool.
Great job. One correction though, 54 degree North means 54 degree eastwards from North and not westwards from North, as suggested in the FAQ section
The new iphone update (may 2010) freezes the compass. Please fix.
i just updated to the latest release and after that the compass stopped working. hope you will take a look of it and fix the bug.
I am verifying the direction from 18 Lobelia Street, Lenasia, JNB; ZA.
My instinct tells me it is wrong on this site. Can you help?
Alhamdulillah, nice tool. May Allah bless you all. jazak Allah
god bless you
Keeps telling me I need to connect to the internet in order to get my location and I am already connected to the internet. Also, will not let me change the GMT.
very good application. pity it’s missing the alarm beep sound
very good application. pity it’s missing the athan alarm beep sound
Salam. I used blackberry almost for last 5 years and in there was also a program called azan. In that there was something very interesting. That there was also another notified before the azan however minutes before you want to set. I request to add that into ur version because it would benefit in ramadan. Let’s say u want to set up notification 45 minted before fajr so it will change accordingly. If I set alarm so u would have to change time every might. Thanks
This feature has been included in the next release of alQibla. Inshallah it will appear on app store in a week.
Salam Ali, I like to request one more feature which will benefit this program in great deal, I work monday tuesday and thursday in which i like to have notification on system sound for Zuhr, Asar, and Magrib, because i dont want AZAN sound on those working days at my work. now i am off on the days wednesday and all weekend, so i can use azan sound all day. rightnow in current version, either azan or system sound, but you cant customize it by days. If would be awesome if we can customize it by days too, lot of people will benefit from that, i am sure it would be difficult to do, but it can be done inshallah
Inshallah I’ll keep this in mind. If it works out I’ll plan for it.
Is alQibla in works for android people, anyone working on it?
Jaza-kallah for contributing to this worthy cause.
The direction from Auckland points towards almost east (9 degrees or so below east). However, after zooming out, the direction takes a curve after Perth and then points rightly towards Qiblah. Do I assume that this change in direction is due to the curvature of the earth??
I installed aQibla on my iphone OS 4.0.2 but it is hanging when operated. I tried to reinstall but had the same problem. Even when it was uninstalled I was getting the prayers notifications! Please send me how can I solve this proble
