There’s a belief of some individuals that the Islamic application is frequently used in Ramadan only. But now, there’s a good Islamic app for Android handset called Siraj Islamic Lifestyle which may deny that assumption. In fact, individuals tend to download the application as their attempt to fulfill their daily needs such as the Athan notification, taujih and ghirah, or some other Islamic info.

Everyone may think that this is the must-have Islamic app for Muslims especially and not for being used only on Ramadan. For your information, this is the second application from Paseban that can be downloaded for free in Google Play. You will appreciate that the app doesn’t only include the Athan notification but there are more advantages in this app when compared to several other Islamic applications out there. Thus, let’s have a look at the following overview of this application for your own noticing.

Just before you are able to use this application, you will need to make sure that your Android device is connected to internet (Data Plan or Wi-Fi) considering that the app needs internet connection. Furthermore, you will have to register the e-mail, name, mobile phone number, sex and password of your own. And then, you can login to the app and start making use of it. If you’re already associated with Paseban, then you can instantly login and utilize the app without needing to register first. Just after signing in, you're going to be given 6 main menus of Siraj Islamic Lifestyle which include:

Places Near Me

This feature delivers the information of the nearest place around you, which include mosques, Islamic Restaurant, Hospital Islam, Islamic Schools, and shop or supermarket. These places are presented with images, contact info, maps, services (parking, internet, toilet, AC, etc. ), description and user’s comments. You may also share the site directly to Facebook, Twitter, give rating and add it to your Favorites. In the Options menu, you are able to select from 5 km, 10 km to 20 km of the place’s parameter.

Prayer Times

This feature contains the schedule of Rawatib Prayer. You'll get the calendar of AD and Hijri and it’s also completed with the time prayer and the schedule of the next prayer. If you move from one place/city to another, click the icon in the upper right; click Options, and Detect My Locations. This app will instantly adjust your location, but generally Siraj had to adjust the time when you use this app at the very first time.

In addition, Prayer Times contains the Athan reminder with a voice. You are able to determine which the time of prayer that you want to arrange. For instance when you're hard to get up for Shubuh prayer, navigate to the Options menu, and check the reminder of Shubuh Athan in Prayer. Later on, your Android device will warn you with a loud voice of Athan in each Shubuh. You can also set it up for vibration only, Athan only, or even both.


Muhasabah can be considered as report cards or your worship record. By using this feature, people can monitor their prayers. People are not only able to monitor the primary prayers, but they also are able to monitor the Sunnah prayers for example Duha and Tahajjud. There will be also the watch-list for fasting, Dhikr, Tilawatil Quran or Recitation. All of the ‘watch-list’ has to be filled by you with the actual conditions of course.

Eventually, you'll get the daily, weekly or monthly report. Just tap the “Sub-menu Evaluation” in order to take a look at this report. Here you may also look at the information (graphic) of the evaluation which is represented by Worse, Bad, Good or Excellent.

The Quotes

The Quotes is a kind of taujih and ghirah, or on the other words it contains the verses of Al Quran or Hadith. It usually includes a paragraph and it will be also adjusted when on a special day or event. For example, when Ramadan, the Quotes may contain the verses of Al Quran or hadith related to Ramadan.

The Quotes has 2 languages, namely Indonesian and English together with the Arabic transliteration. Furthermore, you can take notice of the melodious voices who pronounce Quotes by simply clicking on the top right icon of this menu and it will need an internet connection.


The Supplication features a great number of Islamic duas for your different needs. Same with the Quotes, it comes with two languages namely Indonesian and English and also the Arabic transliteration.


This menu can probably be said as the summary of the entire settings found on Siraj Islamic Lifestyle app. Moreover, there is the information of My Places, that will inform your current location by providing you with the Longitude and Latitude and it'll be instantly switched if you move to other locations.

And so, when you're out of town or even out of country, you will not be confused anymore to alter the timetable of Prayers. Simply download this app and then install it on your Android-powered device (Android 2.2 Froyo or later). The app will also be made available to download for the BlackBerry device and iPhone soon.
