The Courtyard By Muslim Pro: Connect And Be Heard

by Helmy Sa'at

More than 100 million downloads! That is how far the Muslim Pro app has grown and evolved over the past decade.

As we continue to strive to be the digital destination that everyone calls home, the team at Bitsmedia, the makers of the app have expanded the app’s scope beyond providing religious tools, a personalised stream of content and ideas that engage, inspire and support the diverse Muslim community. What we have aimed for and continue to work towards is to emerge as a comprehensive Muslim lifestyle app with the most accurate prayer times, empowering and connecting Muslims worldwide.

Guided by a burning passion and purpose – to serve the global Muslim community, we value the diverse Muslim community and are committed to the cause of progressing Muslim life we have helped to establish over these years and shall continue to nurture and grow it. It has been a privilege that we would continue to honour and work on.

Connect And Be Heard

“Our content hub serves as a space that amplifies Muslim voices from all walks of life, offering people the opportunity to talk about their joys, struggles, and triumphs regarding identity, faith, and devotion to The Divine.

“… I greatly believe that social media, when used for good, can have an overwhelmingly positive effect on the wider community. Here at Bitsmedia, we have a responsibility to steer online conversations in a positive and constructive direction,” shares Fara Abdullah, Co-CEO at Bitsmedia / Muslim Pro.

The importance of community building and bonding is a focal point. Thus, our inaugural live audio session titled “PositiviTEA” on Twitter Spaces where we invited a Muslim revert to share how the community can support reverts during Ramadan, in April of this year.

Another intriguing and revelatory session was with Iman Zawahry, an accomplished hijabi filmmaker, who recently created an award-winning film Americanish, a rom-com based on Muslim lives. The session stemmed from an exclusive watch party playing an episode of Little Mosque on the Prairie, which is presently streaming on Qalbox, followed by an enriching conversations about Muslims and our mediums of storytelling.

From Twitter, Tik Tok to Youtube and Instagram, such live sessions cover a wide range of relevant topics that are of interest to the many cross sections of the global Muslim community.
