Firefox Add-ons: Pray Times!

July 12, 2007 § 11 Comments

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 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: DOWNLOAD HERE

  • 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.

    I’ve been using this for a couple months now; it’s very handy.

  • gess says:

    What is wrong with the word; avatar ?

    My last avatar was a self portrait of James Barry. Found out about him from a documentary film on “Rebels & Martyrs: The Artist’s Struggle”.

  • Hakim says:

    ” What is wrong with the word; avatar ?”

    av·a·tar (ăv’ə-tär’) pronunciation
    n.
    1. The incarnation of a Hindu deity, especially Vishnu, in human or animal form.
    2. An embodiment, as of a quality or concept; an archetype: the very avatar of cunning.
    3. A temporary manifestation or aspect of a continuing entity: occultism in its present avatar.

    “Wow, It’s good news. I like that. Islam is every where now”

  • Muhammad A Haider says:

    Salaam …if ALLAH (S.W.T) is in your heart then you don,t need any prayer reminder. DO you need a reminder to eat ?? NO , because when you feel eat daily and it becomes your habit to eat at certain time . Similarly if u r a True servant of ALLAH (S.W.T) & HIS prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and pray daily then will not need any reminder . needy of your prayers. Salaam
