I know that there are a lot of adhan (Islamic call to prayer) devices out there and many Muslims use the Windows application Athan by IslamicFinder. But I recently installed Ubuntu ME, the Muslim edition of Ubuntu, a popular Linux OS distribution and it works well with one exception, I can't seem to to get Djihed Affifi's Minbar application to work. So I began looking for an alternativeI know that there are a lot of adhan (Islamic call to prayer) devices out there and many Muslims use the Windows application Athan by IslamicFinder. But I recently installed Ubuntu ME, the Muslim edition of Ubuntu, a popular Linux OS distribution and it works well with one exception, I can't seem to to get Djihed Affifi's Minbar application to work. So I began looking for an alternative to the popular Athan since they do not support Linux.This search led me to a really nice find. Pray Times! is a Firefox Add-on to display daily prayer times. It has a very nice, but basic skin, and includes a number of features:

  • Countdown to each prayer time
  • Playing Adhan sound
  • Various methods of time calculation
  • Supporting all locations around the world
  • Local calculation of prayer times (no connection to Internet is needed)

The latest version (1.1.2) was released on 12 June 2007 and can be used with Firefox 1.5 - 3.0a6 on any OS platform, isn't that nice. Its creator Hamid Zarrabi-Zadeh, a Computer Scientist and PhD candidate at University of Waterloo, has also included an extensive list of adhan recordings in mp3 format - I would have used Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) - by some of the most famous mua'dhdhin like Abdul-Basit, Saber and Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens). I am currently using this product and I am very pleased with it. However there are other Add-ons - though there are several bugs - for prayer reminders but Pray Time! is my choice.
