Islamic Calendar Widget for free WordPress Re-activated

Free Islamic Calendar for your WordPress blog.

Free Islamic Calendar for your WordPress blog.

As the old website is now almost completely transfered to the new domain at http://www.al-habib.info, I decided to add more services for the muslims on internet. One of the addition (or actually, re-activation) is the availabilit of image-based islamic calendar widgets for free WordPress blogs. The widgets will also work in other blogs that restrict the use of flash-based widgets.

You can visit the widgets here and get the code to put on your WordPress blogs.

Hope you find this useful.

The widget is adorned with floral and swirl ornaments which have been a trend lately. It also features floating flower bubbles at the background.

As usual, you can visit Alhabib Islamic Widgets to get it. I hope you like it.

Current Moon Phase Widget with Hijri Date

Another islamic calendar widget is released which displays the current phase of the moon. It can also be called an astronomy widget, since more detailed information about the moon are also given. Those that are inclined to astronomy or astrophotography might find such useful information as the age of the moon, the dates and times of last and next new moons as well as full moon.

 

The idea behind this design is that the islamic calendar is lunar based. It is tightly correlated with the phase or the calculated position of the moon. Even the Prophet Muhammad ordered muslims at that time to look for crescent moon to start the islamic lunar month. An order that is still practised by many muslims especially to determine the start and end of major islamic rituals such as ramadan and eids.

Ok, that’s enough for a reason. Now, here is the link to get the widgget and start displaying the ever changing phase of the moon on your blog or website:

Hijri Calendar Converter Widget Released

Preview of the Widget

Sometimes ago, a visitor ask me after visiting my Hijri Calendar Converter Page: “how can i put the converter on my page?” Well, the answer at that time was a definite negative. Meaning, there was no way of displaying the widget on other page because of the complex networking of scripts and web components that I put together to realise the hijri calendar converter page.

Now, it is a pleasure to announce the release of a islamic calendar converter based on flash. The widget is styled to look like a traditional mosque’s arch and brandished with islamic ornament on the background. Other current features of the widget are the ability to choose between Ummul Qura and Suggested Global ¬†Islamic Calendar system. As with other hijri calendar widgets on my site, you u can adjust the date, the size and color.

UPDATE: Now the widget can be set to display the calendar in three languages, english, bahasa indonesia, or arabic.

Hope you find this useful.
