Mobile phone for Muslims to be launched in Russia



A unique cellphone solely for Muslims – with pre-installed Koran in Russian and Arabic and “prayer alarm” – is to go on sale in Russia from the end of November.

Created by BQ-Mobile, the cell phone is expected to become a popular device with Muslims in Russia. A built-in navigator automatically determines the user’s location and also points the way to the qibla, where Mecca lies.

“Before creating the device, experts studied the interests of the faithful. They asked what kind of gadgets would be useful to them in everyday life. The mobile phone menu is very simple and clear, the user can in a few clicks turn the Suras (chapters) of the Koran,” said Timur Imaev, a representative of the Central Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Russia, as cited by the TASS news agency.

BQ-Mobile has told RT that the phone will go on sale nationwide by the end of November. The company said it will soon publish official pictures of the phone and its technical specifications.

“The new phone should enjoy wide popularity, as it will be accessible to all social groups,” chairwoman of the Union of Muslim Women, Naila Ziganshina, told the press.

BQ-mobile is a brand-new Russian company that sells cell-phones, smartphones and tablets at lowcost prices.

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
