With a growing number of Muslim travelers heading abroad, a new travel app called 'Irhal' is helping them meet their specific needs in unfamiliar cities. Not only does the app provide important travel information in Arabic, but it also boasts a number of useful features such as a halal-friendly restaurant guide.
Designed by entrepreneur Irfan Ahmad, the Irhal app is specially designed to help Muslim travelers navigate foreign cities. The app features 90 city guides, which highlight popular tourist attractions and other practical travel tips. In addition, the city guides include halal restaurant reviews, mosque locations, prayer times and qiblah directions. All of these features are designed to make it easier for Muslim travelers to navigate non-Muslim countries.
With Muslim travel on the rise, travel resources such as the Irhal app help to fill an important gap in the market.
