‘‘Don’t Just Wake Up, FajrUp’’
Connecting The Ummah One Believer At A Time.
FajrUp is a social platform that wants to connect millions of people across the world while transcending cultures, time-zones, geography and language.
The Muslim community is a diverse grouping, which transcends culture, race, language, etc, that despite its differences is united by shared values. One of which this medium brings to the fore; The Call to Prayer!
Rather than advocating for an Islamic app, FajrUp represents an Islamic solution that revolves around an Ummah that is globally connected through a spiritual endeavour.
The value of FajrUp is predicated on the lifestyle choice(s) of the Muslim consumer and attempts to:
- Establish a connection between over a billion people across time and space
- Take advantage of the continuous proliferation of smart devices that are becoming more accessible to our target demographic. We are now witnessing a rising global population that is more familiar with the use of smart phones/pads.
- ‘Fit’ into a lifestyle that is already established. A target audience for the platform does not need to be created and FajrUp ‘s effortless assimilation into the day to day lives by its users has been central to its early success and will be the cornerstone of its future.

FajrUp is a digital mobile application designed to wake up the Muslim for their Fajr Salah via a 15 second VoIP call. The application sets automatically to your local Fajr time via GPS, making it hassle free and accurate.
Users can select to be woken up, making them – a ‘FajrUppie’, or select to be the person waking someone up – a ‘FajrUpper’ or both.
All a user would have to do is select ‘FajrUp Me’ or select ‘FajrUp Someone’, to be listed as a person to be woken or to view those wanting to be woken for their Fajr Salah. The application includes other features such as a digital compass/ Qibla leading to Mecca, the obligatory prayers and a calendar highlighting the Muslim holidays and notable days.
As an example, one could be in London/UK, and wake up fellow Muslims across the Indian subcontinent for Fajr around 21:00 GMT and then follow the sun, the Adhan, ibadah, as it moves westward waking people for the Salah. Via a smart phone, one becomes an international call to prayer.
