FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
• Muslim Pro empowers Muslims this Ramadan with new app feature to encourage Muslims to read the entire Quran in 30 days. The app had launched two new features – Dhikr tracking and text-to-speech capability in the Quran – in early March, as part of the developer’s continued efforts to innovate and improve.
• Latest khatam feature allows users to track their reading individually and in groups, uniting Muslims through Quran reading during the COVID-19 pandemic.
• Muslim Pro’s khatam Quran feature also converts good intention into positive action, as Muslim Pro has pledged to donate to children’s charities to encourage sadaqah for children’s educational needs, so that users can “pay it forward” when they complete reading the Quran.
• Muslim Pro aims to reach 10,000 Quran Completions in its #UnitedinKhatam global campaign.
Singapore, 8 April 2021 – Muslim Pro users who use the Ramadan period to complete recitation of the Quran with friends and family will enjoy the app’s newly-launched khatam1 feature, which allows individuals and groups to complete reading the Quran together through the app.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, a holy month that Muslims look forward to every single year. As much as Ramadan is the month of fasting, it is also noted for the revelation of the Quran given to Prophet Muhammad. Reciting the Quran in Ramadan is a religious practice that Muslims believe gives spiritual benefits to the person reading and completing it throughout this month.
To help Muslims with this practice, Muslim Pro’s newest feature gives users complete flexibility in choosing how to complete their Quran reading over the Ramadan period: either individually or in groups, and either reading the Quran digitally through the app or tracking their progress in the app as they read a physical copy of the Quran.
1 Khatam: a complete recitation of the Quran.
“As we approach Ramadan in the middle of a pandemic that has separated many families and friends, it is our hope that the khatam feature would help families and friends to recite the Quran together, thus bringing them closer despite the physical or social distancing rules they have to adhere to,” says Ms Zahariah Jupary, Muslim Pro’s Head of Community.
#UnitedinKhatam: Muslim Pro’s khatam Quran Features
Reading the Quran at home also need no longer be a solitary event as through the app, users can also build a community to read together. The new feature allows them to read the Quran as a group, they can assign parts of the Quran to members to read, as well as nudge members to complete their assigned readings. Achievement badges will be awarded to users who complete their reading, which they can share on social media to encourage others to khatam Quran.
Muslim Pro aims to reach 10,000 completed Quran reading over the Ramadan period.
#GiftofKhatam: Sadaqah2 for children’s education
Muslim Pro has designed its khatam feature with a purpose: to convert good intentions into positive action. The feature will also enable users to sadaqah or “pay it forward” when they khatam Quran with Muslim Pro’s app. This Ramadan, Muslim Pro has pledged to give towards the education of children in various countries in the world so that its khatam Quran programme can have a positive and lasting impact on community.
Ms Zahariah added: “The charity initiative will enable Muslim Pro users to give back to the community for education purposes – it could be towards regular education or to Quran reading classes.” The charities that will benefit will be announced later this month.
