Who says old and new can not co-exist? My neighbor is a devout Muslim and as the Islamic religion stipulates, he must pray five times a day (known as Salat) at fixed times physically facing towards Mecca. But how to know the exact right time to begin prayer since Athan, the call to prayer, is occurring far away in Egypt (or elsewhere) and he is in San Francisco?
Islamic Finder is a software application that launches when it is time to pray wherever you live. You simply enter where you live (it supports over 6 million cities) and it starts running.
Much more than just a reminder app, Islamic Finder actually plays the audio of all of the relevant prayers from the different places in the world where Athan is occurring, automatically launching the prayer audio at the appropriate time. Itâ€™s a kind of automatic call to prayer application with the prayers built right in.
You can send messages to people in your network that it's time to pray, SMS them and even choose to rotate different Athan reciters for the different pray times throughout the day.
So can old and new co-exist? Are they really so incongruent is it just a matter of creating accommodating space and having the (crazy) wisdom to pursue it? You decide.
