You might have already heard about Ramadan Legacy (or maybe you’ve already downloaded it!), the app that was released in 2015 and now has been upgraded in 2016, with the promise of enhancing your Ramadan experience. Well, it appears to have done just that for over two hundred thousand users from around the world.
The tech boom has produced thousands of apps hoping to help people of different faiths to practice their religion, including Muslims. Ramadan Legacy, the World’s #1 App for Ramadan on iOS and Android became the third most searched app in the world in Ramadan for two consecutive years in a row. You can download the Ramadan Legacy app on iOS and Android right now.
What Does The App Do?
Ramadan Legacy provides a 30 day interactive planner which includes key information about daily fasts, prayers, and good deeds at the user’s fingertips. Users are given a fresh page for each day of Ramadan, with a list of the tasks they are obligated to do that day.
While Muslims are required to pray five times a day all year round, many are particularly attentive to their prayers during Ramadan. Through the app, a user can click on a check mark next to the prayer name to note it has been completed.
The app’s most popular feature is the ‘Reflection Stream,’ which is a social stream that allows users to share a story, photo or a tip about Ramadan with others using the app. “Last year, there were 10 posts a minute. Someone in New Zealand would post a picture of their iftar (evening meal) and a person in Hong Kong could see what [they ate].”
Shahbaz Mirza, the Founding Director, says this social aspect highlights the power of connectivity. In the UK, fasting from dawn to sunset can last up to 19 hours and be particularly challenging for those who are working or in school. The app can help Muslims “be a part of a community” and “help and motivate each other.”
A new feature in the 2016 version of the app is the content feed which provides inspiring blogs and videos from some of the world’s premier Islamic content providers including IlmFeed. This provides a go to place for learning in Ramadan.

What makes Ramadan Legacy different to others app is the Legacy Board feature, this captures all your activities and creates a visual representation of your Ramadan achievements. Imagine being able to look back and see all the religious practices you were able to establish and sustain (inshaAllah) over the years, creating a connection between each Ramadan.
Glasgow-based Shahbaz Mirza, the founding director of Ramadan Legacy, says the app is “a high quality, distraction-free space for Ramadan.” Moving beyond Ramadan, the team behind Ramadan Legacy are continually working hard on future app and tech ideas catering to the unique needs of a Muslim’s lifestyle, “we have a desire to create beautiful and unique interactive learning experiences for Muslims around the world.”
