The Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai has launched an exceptional smart application which gives easy and friendly access to lots of its services.
"The smart services, meant to enlighten the public and bring them happiness, are the first of their kind on Islamic and charitable fields in the country," said Dr Hamad Al Shaibani, Director-General of the department.
Nasser Mubarak, IT manager at the department, told Khaleej Times that the public may now have smooth and fast access to the new Quran version of the popular Shaikh Maktoum Mus'haf (Quran version).
"The new smart app, which is available in regular Word format for the first time in the country, can be directly downloaded from the official website of the department."
A new option has been added to this Mus'haf application, he pointed out. "The name of the Quran reader can be identified by his voice whereas the name and number of the Quran chapter can also be easily found and searched by voice."
What is more interesting is an interactive automatic e-Mufti through which an elite group of staff scholars instantly communicate with the public, receive their queries and answer them not only in writing but also via audio and video, he unveiled.
"The e-Mufti app, now available on an HD screen at the Dubai International Airport, Terminal-3, is directly connected to the Fatwa section of the department."
A special app has been launched for charitable and humanitarian works under the theme: 'Emirates Charity' which is an exceptional platform for all charity associations and entities in the Emirate of Dubai, Mubarak said.
All the department's diverse services can further be accessed through a smart app, Mubarak elaborated. "One can easily identify the nearest mosque, and find about the prayer timing as well."
A special app has also been launched for the benefit of employees under the theme 'Solidarity Fund', he disclosed. "This app will be a big support to them all in case of emergency situations."
