Mobile Channels Company (MCC), a company specialized in mobile applications development and content distribution, has unveiled its integrated Dorar Al-Haj application, specially designed to guide pilgrims on how to perform the Haj rituals using their smart phones.
The free application encompasses easy-to-follow instructions for any Muslim intending to go to Makkah for the Haj.
It provides in-depth information on Haj-related topics in accordance with the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
MCC Arabia’s GM Salem Al-Enzi said: “As a leader in digital content development for mobile phones, MCC developed Dorar Al-Haj application whose interactive, user-friendly interface will provide pilgrims with handy instructions and information on all Haj-related rituals. In addition, the application encompasses Fatawi Al-Haj service through which pilgrims can contact officials of the Ministry of Islamic Affairs for free if they have any inquiries on Haj rituals.”
Al-Enzi added: “The idea of the application stemmed from the need to forestall the problems Muslim pilgrims may encounter during their journey. MCC’s Haj application will give users complete information and detailed guidelines to perform all the necessary acts during Haj, starting from ihram to the end of performing Haj, supported with detailed, interactive maps for the holy sites.”
He said the application also contains audio Haj-related verses from the Holy Qur’an and Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Other than that, users can also view pictures of the different holy places that are spread all over Saudi Arabia.
In addition to incorporating lists of important addresses and phone numbers which connect pilgrims to police, ambulance, or hospitals in case of emergency, the application enables pilgrims to share its content together with pictures of the Islamic places with friends via e-mails or social media networks.
The Dorar Al-Haj application will be available via mobile application stores for users to download it.
