It is that time of the year when Muslims around the world are busy in fulfilling their religious obligations. During the entire month of Ramadan, they dedicate themselves to self-reflection, devotion, and contemplation. However, there are many who also have daily chores and work to look after and they find it hard to reflect back. Thus, they are left behind in attaining the blessings and spiritual benefits of this holy month.
Thanks to technology, it has become easier for busy people to keep a track of their spiritual practices. There are a number of apps on both App Store and Google Play Store which will make this spiritual journey easier for you this Ramadan. Here are the top five amongst them:
Muslims around the world increase their frequency of reading the Quran in Ramadan. This is the month when this holy book was revealed the very first time. Through a virtual Holy Quran, it becomes possible for the Muslims to read the Quran while being on the go and navigate to any surah quite easily.
This is the best online versions of the Quran that comes with translations and complete audio recitation files too. A simpler version of the app is available for free for both Android and iOS devices.

Many Muslims would not consider a fitness app to be important during the month of Ramadan but it is very important to keep a track of the altered eating patterns. This app will help in calculating the daily calorie intake and is an easy-to-use app. You can track your diet and exercise so that your body is able to meet the daily requirement of nutrients to stay in a perfectly healthy condition.
