Islam

Samir Alicehajic's program is essentially a front end to an array of searchable databases containing information vital to practicing Muslims, including English translations of the Qur'an and several Hadiths. There's also a tool that calculates times for prayer, and animations demonstrating the correct ways to pray for both men and women, with accompanying text.

This program would be very useful to practitioners of Islam, but it is clearly not designed for the casual student who simply wants to learn more about the religion.

One complaint: The English translations could use a good editor; they were clearly written by non-native speakers.
