The Hijri calendar is not just numbers by which we count the days, there is a link between our faith and the Hijri calendar, but at this time many people have come to deal with the Gregorian calendar, and perhaps many do not know what the current day corresponds to in the Hijri calendar. At iPhone Islam, we decided to introduce the first Arabic and Islamic widget that displays the Hijri date on iOS devices.

Apple added a notification center in iOS 5 and added a widget like weather, which enabled you to easily know the temperature now without having to open the app, so we thought why you can't know the Hijri date of the day in this quick way? Especially since there are a number of Arab countries that use this calendar as a basic calendar for the state, and from here we presented the Hijri widget to appear to you as follows.


There are more than one billion and 300 million Muslims around the world spread in all countries of the world, and despite this huge number, we find there is a qualitative deficiency in Islamic service applications, so you find hundreds of applications that provide the Noble Qur’an or hadiths and the timing of prayer, but there is a shortage of other programs Service, and from this standpoint we sought to correct this matter and address this deficit and we began with the first digit that presents the Hijri calendar and can be downloaded from Cydia Free For an angel The developed Islamic calendar application.

This app is no longer available on the App Store. :-(

Of course, Apple does not officially allow the widget, so we downloaded it to Cydia, which of course requires a jailbreak for your device, for more about the jailbreak, see this link.
