Athan, also spelled Azan, Azaan, and Adhan, is Islam's daily call to prayer. Athan (Azan) Basic from Islamic Finder is a free tool that helps Muslims perform daily devotions wherever they are in the world. Muslim prayer depends on accurate knowledge of the time and the individual's location, both in relation to Mecca and to the Sun. All you need to do is establish your location in the world and Athan (Azan) Basic issues automatic calls to prayer at the correct time of day, five times a day. This tool supports the Standard and Hanafi juristic methods and offers several ways to calculate sunrise and sunset. Athan (Azan) Basic is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.

When you install Athan (Azan) Basic, you need to enter your geographic location from extensive lists of countries and cities. You can also enter your Latitude and Longitude, Time Zone, and Daylight Savings Time options directly. We entered our city and clicked Save. The program's simple, uncluttered interface displayed the current time, our location, and the next 6 prayer times. A message at the bottom of the interface displayed the time until the next Fajr. That's just the start of Athan (Azan) Basic's offerings, though. For instance, the Tools menu has a complete list of monthly prayer times, Athan texts, Special Islamic days, and other pop-ups. Some listed features are only available in the software's Pro version, such as Quran Recitations, Calendars, and Qiblah. The Options menu includes tools for fine-tuning Minutes and Hijri Date. You can download extra tools as well as access a variety of optional Web Services such as online world prayer times, Quranic search and commentary, photo galleries, and source code; even prayer instructions, too. A Mobile Phone app is available as well. The program's FAQ-style Help file does a good job explaining what it does and how to use it.

Athan (Azan) Basic is an excellent standalone app for devout Muslims anywhere in the world. It's also a good introduction to Athan Pro, which not only offers more Athans but also the ability to add your own Athans.

"Consistent, reliable reminder"

March 23, 2013  |  By abulbatool

 |  Version: Athan (Azan) Basic 4.4

Pros

Multiple options for timing calculation
Multiple Athan voices

Cons

None I have experienced on usage
Upgrades require re-entry of all settings

Summary

Been using this app for years. Performs well with no issues.

Wishlist :

1. Upgrades would remember my settings so I don't have to re-enter each time.
2. Option to wake computer up (from sleep/hybernation mode) for particular Athan times (e.g. Fajr).

"Very good reminder for prayer time."

December 20, 2012  |  By 786Tahira

 |  Version: Athan (Azan) Basic 4.3

Pros

I just love it. My mom have no vision she always pray on time when she hear the Adhan on the computer, and ready for prayers. May Allah bless them who make the efforts to bring it out in the market for Muslims. It is just perfect reminder in these kind of countries where we do not listen Adhan in the msgid. but this is perfect reminder for Muslim at home.

Cons

if computer is off you can hear it in your cell phone if you have down load................

Summary

I like it very handy very easy and ready to go for prayers. Thank you may Allah give them reward for this.

"Annoying to blast as soon as you turn on the computer."

November 26, 2012  |  By tmbenz

 |  Version: Athan (Azan) Basic 4.3

Pros

proper times of prayer

Cons

too loud when you first turn on the computer.

Summary

It is nice, but I don't like the fact that it is very loud at start of computer... I think you should be able to adjust whether it does anything at the start up. It should only sound off at the 5 prayer times.
