Islamic Travel City Guides in Arabic/English for 90+ cities

Irhal is an Arabic/English travel app for Muslim travelers worldwide. It has 90+ city guides with information on places to visit, shopping, hotels, etc. It also has GPS enabled locations of Halal restaurants and mosques. It includes prayer timings and a compass showing the direction of Makkah (Mecca). There is no Arabic travel app in the market.

The Islamic travel sector is worth over $137 billion (2013 Thomson Reuters) and is growing rapidly. Irhal wants to become the must-have resource for all Muslim travelers.

The app is being distributed free. Monetization is through advertising, affiliate sales of travel pacakges and hotel bookings.

The initial markets are the Gulf countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman) where:
- mobile penetration is over 70%
- lack of Arabic mobile content
- outbound travel is worth over $40 billion annually
Advertisers are willing to pay a premium to reach this audience.

Irhal.com received 1 million unique users in 2014.
