We often witness mobile phones ringing in the mosques, especially during prayers, to feel ashamed to their owners who have forgotten to switch on the ‘Silent Profile’. Especially it becomes more embarrassing if one has selected a song as ringtone.
To overcome all such problems, a new prayer app, Silence in Masjid, is introduced that selects “Silent” profile in your smartphone during the Prayer. Never worry again about forgetting to select silent mode during Prayer, and you don’t even need to switch off your phone.
How it works
The new Android app, “Silence in Masjid” is developed by Ahmed, a Pakistani boy from Hyderabad. The size of the app is just 3.7MB and does not make your phone memory full. When you open the app for the first time, it automatically detects your location and asks you to select the Jurisdiction of “Hanafi” or “Standard”.
The app automatically calculates Prayer schedule in offline mode. You can also change prayer calculation method from the menu. The available calculation methods are Jafari, Karachi, North America, Muslim World League, Umm Al-Qura (Makkah), Egyptian, and Tehran.

An icon appears in the upper left corner of the screen. When you tap this icon, the app provides you with the entire available options list. On the home screen, it shows prayer timings. Tap any prayer and you can set the silence timing of that prayer between 0 to 60 minutes. If your phone is already set to silent mode during the prayer, the app does not change it then.
You can select “Stop Silencer” to deactivate the silent mode feature. When you tap on “Nearby Masjids” option, it shows you a list of all the nearby mosques by using GPS technology and the internet. Click on any mosque name and the app will show you the exact location of that mosque on Google Maps, so never worry again if you are in a new area and having difficulty finding a mosque.
Meanwhile, the management of a mosque can print the QR code of this app, and paste it on the door of the mosque, so that the visitors of the mosque can download this useful app instantly.
