How The Product Works

The product must first be downloaded via electronic device (smartphones/iPads). For Apple
users, it can be found in the Apple Store, whereas for Android users, the app can be downloaded
from the Google Play Store for a minimum fee of RM 5 yearly. Once downloaded, the app can
be used as a daily prayer reminder. When the prayer time enters, the phone would alarm the
users the prayer call (Azan). Therefore, the user would never miss the opportunity to perform
his Islamic duties. For parents who lack the time to monitor their children, the app has a unique
function whereby the app would sense if the user performs his/her prayer. Both parent and child
must first download the app, then link the app to one another’s device. When the prayer time
enters, the alarm begins to ring. In order to turn off the alarm, the user will be given 10 minutes
to perform the prayer. If fail to do so, the alarm would ring every 10-minute interval. The user
has to place the phone on the praying mat, facing upwards. Every movement would then be
detected by the light sensor which is on the front side of the device. For every movement
detected, the device will automatically disable the alarm. Parents could also keep track of their
child’s prayer with the log book pre-existed in the device. The device would the type of prayer
perform, the time of the prayer perform, as well as a picture that would be captured by random
through the front facing camera as proof. Besides that, there are also a range of different
services that are stated above.

1.2 Target Market and Projections

There are many Islamic countries within the Asia region, such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and
Singapore. And many Islamic practitioners in India and China. Our target is to attract clients
in Asia, then expanding to European countries. However, Malaysia would be the first step in
terms of launching and advertising as we have gathered feedback and research among the
citizens here and found that majority of them favoured and had a liking towards the app.
Gathered research found that most of the Muslims didn’t pray 5 times a day instead 2-3 times
a day due to their busy schedule and lack of reminders. Besides that, a research was also done
on young teenagers and found that most of them rarely even pray at all. Therefore, our main
target for this app is to capture the hearts of Muslims who are trying to make a change for the

better. Those who neglect praying due to unfortunate circumstances such as having little or no
time because of heavy work load. With the purchase of this app, the user would have a better
chance to pray whenever the prayer time enters. Other than that, this app would be suitable for
Muslim converters as they are not familiar to the concept of praying 5 times a day. This app
would be handy as they are reminded every day to the point where they would remember
subconsciously. Last but not least, this app is a great way for parents to monitor their children
at a young age. Since we live in a world where technology is used in our everyday life, this
could be a fun learning app to improve their children’s iman.

1.3 Competitive Advantages

There exist similar apps to encourage Muslims to pray with azan calls etc. However, none of
them offer alarms that disable when performing prayers making this app unique as it is. The
other applications offer azan calls similar to WeSajadah and other features such as fasting
times, Islamic calendars and doas. The design and outlook we offer is appealing and the ease
of using this app makes it exceptional. Besides that, users are more likely to be happier with
apps that do not contain advertisements such as WeSejadah. Furthermore, compared to the
other apps, WeSejadah is the cheapest among them, however there are apps which are offered
for free but lack the essential components.

1.4 Profitability

Before launching this app, payment to the app store has to be made (Apple Store and Google
Play Store) as well as to the programmer that developed this app. The total cost that was
ventured was RM 3508. However, since there are 14 states in Malaysia, the number of users
are predicted to grow yearly. With a yearly fee of RM 5 per user, the estimated profit is RM 9
000, 000 in the first 3 years of launching app. The profit would then be estimated to grow at a
steadier rate once the amount of users increases at different regions and countries.

1.5 Management team

The organization chart consists of 4 share-holders and founders for the app “WeSejadah”. The
main share-holder of this app at owning 40% of the shares in Muhamad Harith bin D.M. Prem

WeSejadah Apps

Najeeb who has experience in the technology and business field. The remaining 60% of the
company is equally distributed to the remaining 3 co-founders who are Muhammad Aiman
Ashraf Bin Rosli with experiences as a supervisor in his former job at Intel, Amirul Rahman
Bin Mohd Nor with experiences in finance when we has working with Nestle and RHB Bank
and lastly Amirul Aizad bin Salehuddin who has an outstanding record in marketing where he
worked as an assistant marketing manager at one of the most recognized telecommunication
company, Digi. The company also hired Muhammad Shafiq Ezat Emir Bin Mohd Kassimi to
handle our development and improvements in software technicalities. He was previously
working at Microsoft Intel and we strongly believe he is a valuable asset to WeSejadah.

Conclusion

In conclusion, WeSejadah can be very useful and beneficial for all Muslims who wish to be
closer to Allah. This app may not only be a milestone to that journey, but it can also help us
fully understand Islam with the other in app features. In the Quran, it is stated that all Muslims
should seek the time and effort to be closer to Allah and attain his love. By purchasing this app,
the user will be trained to pray whenever the prayer time begins, hence planting a subconscious
act in the future which he or she may not depend on the app to remind them no more. As for
teenagers and children, this can be a great teaching tool. It is always better to train the young
ones at an early age. The other features in the app such as dua’s as also great to connect with
God. As they come with translations, the recites can be understood in a deeper level. Moreover,
humans are not immortal, this app could also be influence humans to remorse and repent from
sins as it keeps the faith in Allah strong. Overall, WeSejadh isn’t only about praying, but it is
to also generate better Muslims and have a better lifestyle.

2.0 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Malaysia is an Islamic country which dates back to when the country was formed.
However, with today’s multi culture and technology, many Muslim brother and sisters are
neglecting their Islamic duties. Majority of them are teenagers from the age of 13-19 with
minority of adults. Part to be blamed is the western culture they learn from movies and videos,
as well as from technology which provides endless entertainment and consumes most of their
time. This has to be rectified before their morality and religion background would be criticized
and looked down upon. Besides that, converted religions tend to not notice or remember when
a prayer time begins, therefore he/she would miss the opportunity to perform their muslim’s
duty

In order to overcome this problem, an application has been designed to monitor


children, teenagers and adults. This application works as a reminder to pray 5 times a day. The
steps are fairly easy to follow. Firstly, download the application from the iOS store, or play
store. Next, register as a parent or a user. If registered as a parent, both parent and child would
have an account linked to one another. Whereas, if registered as a normal user, no links are
tied. Next, is to patiently wait for the upcoming prayer time. When a prayer time begins, the
phone would be alarmed. You will be given 10 minutes to perform your prayer, or the alarm
begins in a 10-minute interval until the prayer is performed. Before praying, the user must then
place the phone on the praying mat and perform his prayers as usual.

Also, this app plans to add a feature to which it can recite holy words of the Quran. The
function of this app is not only as a reminder to pray but to also learn recites of the holy Quran
words along with translations. This could be a paid feature to which a variety choices of imam
could upload their recites for users to understand and connect on a deeper level.

3.0 TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION

The proposed application is a type of software that solely depends on the mobile phone.
It only supports mobile phones which have internet data or wifi connections and the ability to
download softwares. Since the application itself has a proprietary technology, the user would
be charged in order to purchase. The app does not require monthly fees, but only a one-time
fee. However, there will be no adds in this app so that users can enjoy the app without any
disturbance from sudden adds.

3.1 PHONE BASIC FUNCTIONS

Smart phones nowadays have advance technology functions that can helps user in many
ways such as the clock and alarms. For this app, these basic functions are used to help in this
app development. As for the clock, different countries are able to download this app since
prayer times are based on the rise and dawn of the sun. Different countries have different time
zones, and this would allow the app to function properly. Besides that, the clock is also used
as an alarm, which would ring based on the prayer time. This can be set to either the prayer call
(azan) or to a standard alarm tone. The user would be given the option to choose.

3.2 CAMERA

The camera is an option provided to parents who wish to monitor their children. This
would be an excellent way for parents to preach teach obedience to their young ones. When a
prayer time enters, the child would be notified. After being notified, the child would be given
a duration to which he/she would have to perform their duty. The interval of which the next
alarm would ring can be adjusted to preference. Before praying, the phone must be placed on
the praying mat, faced up, in order to capture an image. A log book is also a feature added to
keep track of the child’s prayer count.

3.3 LIGHT SENSOR

Another features that plays a huge role in this app is the light sensor. Most of the smart
phones nowadays are equipped with light sensors to detect the presence of light. This way, it
can save the battery life by turning off the screen if the users are not using the phone. For our
app purpose, this light sensors act as a detector that detects the rakʿah of the prayers performed.
It senses when the user sujud’s/kneel. By counting the number of movements made, the device
would then turn off the alarm, and therefore, a prayer would never be missed.

4.0 Market Research and Analysis

4.1 Customers

Nowadays in Malaysia, contain almost 19.5 million which is 61.5 % from total resident
in Malaysia. The main problem for the muslim resident is they too busy with their work or
other secondary job due to high life cost. Their child sometime unmonitored about what they
do when their parent at home. Although they always advise them to do their prayer when they
work, but no one knows if they have done their prayers or not. Some of the children lie to their
parent about performing the prayer because they lazy or busy playing games. This will lead to
unhealthy lifestyle between parents and children.

From the problem above, our mobile application is mainly focus on married muslim
resident that have the child. According to our google form survey, among the 57.4 % from 71
people is married, that agree to have the apps as to monitored their children in performing the
prayer. The main reason that they want the apps because they are busy with the work, thus
can’t monitored their children themselves which’s 64.3%. The other reason is they are far away
from their children due to outstation work.

Malaysia first. This is to see how many people demands for the apps. Since this app’s target
audience is mainly Muslims, our future target distribution will mainly focus on Islamic
countries before entering non-muslim countries around the globe. This app will available in
