Our story begins one fine day in April 2015. The little angel repeating her pleas to her father to pleeease play her favorite Dua e Faraj on the basic azan-only clock. Not taking no for an answer. Insisting, again and again. It was at this point that the idea of eAhlulbayt was born. Planted in father's head by the sweet innocence of a three year old.
After a debate in the mind that went from a firm No to Not Sure to May Be, came the words little Zahra wanted to hear. "Surely, it can be done" admitted the tech-savvy father, who has a passion for technology and love for Islam, looking thoughtfully at the bewildered azan-only clock. It can be made to play Duas and Quran and much much more... It can be a very smart clock. It can be more than a clock. It can be... eAhlulbayt!
A child's wish gave birth to an idea which soon evolved into a burning desire to harness technology to benefit the global community of Ahlulbayt lovers.

In May 2015 the project commenced from our house in Singapore. We conducted market research to see what was available out there. Spent many hours surveying the scene, looking at all the competition. We were amazed at how hard it was to find a device that went beyond the basic features. The market had a plethora of smart devices to offer for worldly activities and pleasures. When it comes to the body that will last 90 years or so at most, one is spoilt for choice. There is this gadgets galore with every kind of sophisticated technology in use. But when it comes to hi-tech aids and adornments for the soul, the reality that lives on and on, there is nothing much on offer.
Several months went conceptualizing the features and functionalities of eAhlulbayt. It called for much creativity. Innovative approaches were needed to cater to the needs of all without compromising on ease of use and attractive features. It has to be able to win the love of the entire global family. It must be a friend that invites you every day to what is best for your eternal life. It must help in purifying the hearts, no less. Not only that, your eAhlulbayt must contribute to your efforts to make your home fit to receive our Imam ajfs, inshAllah.
We have been working closely with the manufacturer to ensure that a quality product materializes, a product that lives up to its grand name of “eAhlulbayt”. The basic design was endowed with advanced features. We went through over 15 levels of iterations before finalizing the final prototype. It is guaranteed to meet strict performance standards
And in February 2016 the final model saw the light of the day. It is now being fine tuned and embellished with software enhancements and audio files. We are indebted to websites such as Duas.org and few other multimedia sites for being able to use their audio content.
eAhlulbayt can be the tool you are looking for to transform your life in a way that brings eternal heavenly rewards.

Two years ago, prior to a sweltering Ramadan, I made a list of all the things I was going to complete. However, by the tenth day, I was depleted of my imaan boost. After ‘Eid al-Fitr, I looked over my list.
But they seem so easy to accomplish… what went wrong? I believe the problem was that I aspired to reach so many goals in such a short amount of time without really thinking about...
Opportunity to repent is among the most important blessings from the Merciful Lord. Given our propensity to fall into sins in a world that beckons towards evil at every step, not taking help from this opportunity is probably the biggest and most dangerous folly that anyone can commit. Consequences of leaving this world with unpardoned sins are too dreadful to imagine.
Thanks for an amazing 2016. As a start-up, like all others, we’ve had some ups-and-downs, and I’m grateful you’ve stuck with us around. Seriously, some of you have been reading our newsletters since the beginning and supporting and sharing (caring) which is amazing.
We launched an entirely new site in April 2016, and almost as quickly took it went all over. It was our big experiment with #SmartAzanClock product to understand the market need...
