Islamic Technology

Continuing with my bit on cellphones I found some cool stuff I had never heard of. First of all there are these cellphones made by LG , a Dubai-based company and some Saudi company which all are designed to assist Muslims with the salaah.

But that’s peanuts compared to this. This is over 2 years old and I guess it never took off. The ‘Sajjadah 1426’ is a high-tech LED prayer rug that lights up when sensing the closeness of the Qibla. Follow the links to see more pics of it.

The Christians seem to have a head start on the dhikr aspect with the iRosary. My Sufi sense is tingling. 😀
