New Haj, Umrah apps launched

Two new Haj and Umrah applications in English, Urdu and Hindi were launched in Riyadh recently.
The application named “Haj-e-Mabroor” contains three books on Haj and Umrah, nine speeches, one Haj and Umrah presentation and 21 articles. The second app has been named “Deen-e-Islam” and consists of 175 articles dealing with different aspects of life, 75 speeches, and seven books.
Muhammad Mustafa Azmi, the renowned Hadith scholar and King Faisal Award laureate, launched the mobile applications created by Najeeb Qasmi. In a speech, Qasmi said users can find them in the PlayStore or AppStore by simply typing “Najeeb Qasmi” or “Haj-e-Mabroor” and install them in two minutes.
Renowned scholars have urged Muslims to use the application, including Mufti Abul Qasim Nomani, rector of Darul Uloom Deoband, and Maulana Mohammad Zakaria Sambhali of Nadwatul Ulema, Lucknow. These testimonials are part of the apps. The English and Hindi version of the website and the English and Hindi translation of Haj-e-Mabroor, a pocket-size Haj book, were also launched by Azmi.
Attendees included Musharraf Ali, Khurshid Anwar, Arshad Bari, Atiqurrahman and Abid Aqeel. They thanked Qasmi for his efforts.
The program ended with an appeal to strengthen the initiatives of Qasmi by Maulana Abdul Bari Qasmi, president of the program.
Azmi is a graduate of Darul Uloom Deoband. He received his master’s degree from Al-Azhar University, Egypt, in 1955 and Ph.D. from Cambridge University in 1966. He is the first man to computerize Arabic texts of Hadith and has written many books being taught in various universities across the world.
