Alhamdulilah for the capability to turn to Allah (Swt) and never be turned away. If that isn’t love, then what is?
so ive been getting a lot of questions about the islamic apps I use; i thought id make a general post about since many of you seem to be interested.
for those of you who have hand held apple products (ipod, ipad, or iphone), you can get these apps for free from the appstore. yes, as of today (not sure if theyre going to change the price in the future), they are free.
some of the apps are related to duas, supplications, and daily quranic quotes. some of them are just quran apps alone. and one or two of them are apps you can download for your younger siblings, nephews and nieces, or cousins to play with (like the Muslim kids Series app, where you draw the arabic alphabet). and then a few of them help you measure and organize your day to day plans regarding your eeman.
these are the top 10 apps i would probably install (if i had enough memory to store them). again, theyre free, quick to download, and extremelly helpful.
have fun ^_^

Thousands of protesters gathered outside the town hall in Argenteuil near Paris on Friday of last week. They were enraged and upset after a series of racist attacks against Muslim women.
Rabia, a young woman who wears the hijab, had been beaten by the fascists, but the mayor and police pressured her not to file a complaint. A second woman was violently arrested for wearing a niqab. People who defended her were also taken into custody.
The assaults went further last weekend when a pregnant woman wearing the hijab was beaten in the stomach. Her attacker also cut her hair. There are reports that she has since miscarried as a result of the beating.
The demonstration was the biggest expression of determination and action against Islamophobia in France for a long time. Groups of people were debating politics at a high level—it felt like a small Tahrir Square.
We urgently need to build an anti-fascist and anti-racist movement that is clear against Islamophobia—and what is happening in Argenteuil is an example to follow.
Unity march planned
A number of trade union federations and left wing and anti racist organisations are supporting a united national demonstration against fascism in Paris on Sunday of this week.
It was called in response to the killing of student Clément Méric by fascist thugs earlier this month.
Meanwhile the fascist Front National pushed the ruling Socialist Party into third place in the first round of a by-election near Bordeaux. It was called to elect a replacement for former Socialist budget minister Jérome Cahuzac who was forced to resign after his secret Swiss bank account was revealed.
This brings the government’s majority down to just three MPs. The Front National is now set to face the Tory UMP in the second round.
