Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of its Islamic applications for SMART TV users. Users can now make the most out of the holy month of Ramadan with Samsung’s Islamic applications, found on the Smart Hub. The applications include Al Roqya Al Sharayaa, Husn al Muslim and Prayer Times and are available for free for SMART TV users. More applications will also be available later this month such as, Quran Mojawed, and Sahih Bukhari.
The holy month of Ramadan is an important month for Muslims. It is a time when people reflect deeply on their religion and strengthen ties with family and friends; give more to their communities and generally commit themselves to becoming better people. Samsung’s SMART TV Islamic applications have been developed to provide users with an enhanced spiritual experience that will make a real difference in their lives. Whether reading daily azkars from ‘Husn Al- Muslim’ or setting up prayer reminders using the ‘Prayer Times’, these applications aim to help Muslims become more observant during the Holy Month of Ramadan and throughout the year.
In addition to ‘Husn Al Muslim’ and ‘Prayer Times’, the range of Islamic applications also include, ‘Al Roqya El Sharaaya’, a list of audio narrated prayers that are used for spiritual and physical healing.
“Samsung’s launch of the SMART TV Islamic applications part of our commitment to understanding the local culture and community and developing regionally relevant content and applications to suit consumer needs,” said Vinod Nair, General Manager TV Business, Samsung Gulf Electronics. “We want our consumers to connect with the month of Ramadan in the most meaningful way. The new Islamic apps provide Muslims a new and diverse channel to source information and teachings, allowing them to further enhance their religious understanding this Ramadan.”
“We strive to deliver a TV experience consumers won't find anywhere else. We will continue to develop our unique and innovative applications and services that consumers have come to expect and enjoy from Samsung’s SMART TV,” added Nair.
Later this month, Samsung will also be releasing ‘Quran Mojawed’, where people can listen to streaming audio of the Quran from narrators like Al Hudhaifi, and Sahih Bukhari’, a detailed encyclopedia of the Prophet’s (PBUH) hadiths, ‘Herbal Medicine’, a useful guide for herbal treatments, and ‘Kunooz’, an entertaining application yet educational about Islam, Sports and Literature.
