Knowing the Qiblah direction and prayer times are some of the key needs of a Muslim traveler. With this button, which is now introduced in each of the Crescentrated Hotel’s page, Country Guide’s page, Airport Guides, etc. on http://www.crescentrating.com, travelers will get the prayer direction and the prayer time for any location with a click of a button.
For the Crescentrated Hotels, this will reduce the difficulties that Muslims may face during their travels. This will also assist hotels which are unable to place Qiblah direction markings in their hotel rooms or provide a prayer timetable. Crescentrated Hotels will now be able to use this feature to provide this information when requested by their guests.
Rafi-uddin Shikoh, Managing Director of DinarStandard, a US based Muslim Market consultancy company said, “Crescentrating continues to innovate in the space of Halal-friendly travel. The Qibla direction and prayer timing tool is one of the every basic needs most Muslim consumers will look for when they travel. By leveraging this simple yet valuable button, hotels can be sure to win the attention of many Muslim customers.”
“Having the Qiblah direction and the local prayer times is beneficial to both, our guests and our staff at Tilal Liwa Hotel, as it enables them to be more comfortable (during their stay) and allows them to experience better service,” says Mary Jane Ibasco, the Sales & Marketing Coordinator at Tilal Liwa Hotel, Abu Dhabi.
The Crescentrating website includes Muslim traveler guides for hundreds of cities around the world. Travelers utilizing the website to plan their next vacation will be pleased to find that they are able to identify the Qiblah direction and local prayer times from any of the cities listed in Crescentrating’s Guides with one click of this button at the end of each guide.
“This is one more step towards helping the Muslim traveler plan Halal-friendly vacations” said Fazal Bahardeen, CEO of Crescentrating. “Although there are many online resources to find the Qiblah direction and prayer times, we wanted to make it extremely easy for a traveler to find this information without needing to input the coordinates or the address of the hotel that they are staying in. That is what we have achieved with the launch of this Button now,” added Fazal.
In order assist the travelers, Crescentrating has also just released three short videos on how to find Qiblah direction and prayer time for Crescentrated Hotels, City Guides and for any other location http://www.crescentrating.com/en/blog-other/item/1936-qiblah-direction-and-prayer-time-button-launched.html
