Guidance is a Menu Bar application that notifies you about the amount of time you have left until the next Adhan prayer. This program comes in handy to Muslim users who wish to keep track of when it's due time for prayer and listen to the Adhan (Islamic call to worship) on their speakers or headphones.

The program displays a countdown time on your Menu Bar as well as the name of the prayer you need to make next. I like the fact that you can customize the appearance of the app's icon and message (countdown info) according to your needs (show the countdown info and name of the prayer in English or Arabic language, display the full name or an abbreviation of the prayer's name, etc.).

Another good thing about this application is that it can detect your current location and show you exactly how much time you got left until prayer.

The program also enables you to set reminders for prayers, adjust the sound volume for the Adhan, and many other.

To sum things up, Guidance proves to be a reliable solution to any Islamic Mac user who needs to know how much time he or she has left until the prayer. The application is very simple to handle, sits quietly on your Menu Bar until the countdown timer hits zero, and comes without a price tag.
