For Muslims, preparation to perform Hajj or pilgrimage and Umrah are very vital before and in the time of travelling to Mecca including learning all the rituals and rules. Nowadays, more and more Malaysians prefer to perform pilgrimage at young age. Tawaf is one of the Islamic rituals of pilgrimage. During the Hajj and Umrah, Muslims are to circumambulate the Kaabah (most sacred site in Islam) seven times, in a counterclockwise direction. The circling is believed to demonstrate the unity of the believers in the worship of the One God, as they move in harmony together around the Kaabah, while supplicating to Allah. Although, there are a number of existing mobile applications in the market available which are related to pilgrimage and Umrah, the applications are less interactive and do not offer smart feature to assist the user. Besides, some of the applications has language constraint and limitation which does not meet the target users’ demand. Hence, the proposed project, Tawaf Guide Mobile Application is aimed to provide more practical and enjoyable option for the young generation of Android device user to learn, understand and perform the Tawaf ritual perfectly. The scope of study for this mobile application is focused on how to implement the location sensor in order to track the device position thus determining the number of Tawaf’s round completed by the user. In addition, the application will be featured with simple simulation of Tawaf with prayers. Recent studies suggested that using Android as the platform for the mobile application is cost effective as it is an open source and very popular nowadays and for the near future. The methodology chosen for this project is iterative methodology which involves the use cases diagram and prototyping. The activities included to complete the project are planning, analysis, design, implementation, testing and end product delivery. The project is estimated to be completed and delivered within two semesters of university study.
