We believe that Ramadan is a journey towards Allah. It inspires and transforms us to become the best of who we are. That’s why we’ve made it our purpose to uphold the pillar, and create innovative learning products where you can meaningfully experience Ramadan. Since 2014, our team have come together to form Ramadan Legacy: an organisation that places your religious and spiritual aspirations at the heart of everything we do. Using design-thinking and innovative technology we have created a world class award-winning mobile app, and physical learning products that have transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people across the world - and we’re just getting started.
Ramadan Legacy was born by a collective team of friends. We just happened to be entrepreneurs and creatives that were passionate about Islamic education. We had a vision and passion to create innovative products whereby people could not only learn about Islam but truly experience it, and integrate it within their daily lifestyle.
Since launching, Ramadan Legacy has won awards, trended and placed at #6 in the lifestyle category on the app stores, and delivered workshops and courses in the UK, UAE and Asia. We were also recognised as a trending digital company by Reuters and were featured by the largest media companies in the world. As of 2018, Ramadan Legacy has directly supported over 300,000 Muslims around the world to fulfil their Ramadan through a simple carefully designed mobile experience and a range of world-class educational products that people simply love to use.
