• A Raspberry Pi 4 that you can buy online (Amazon, Aliexpress...)

  • A TV screen

  • A wall mount for TV

  • An HDMI cable

  • If you do not have an internet connection, we recommend you to use an RTC clock (Real time clock)


  1. Sign-up here

  2. Add the mosque from your user space, bring two photos of the mosque (exterior / interior) and articles or proof of incorporation of the mosque (like an Energy bill).

    The proof of residence or other documents are not required for home or other types of installations.

  3. Download the pre-configured system image here

  4. Connect the micro SD card to your computer through the dedicated port or to a USB SD card reader

  5. Download the Etcher software at then install it on your computer

  6. Flash the mawaqit.xz system image on the micro SD card with Etcher

Well done ! You installed the system image on the memory card of your Raspberry Pi, you now have two options:

OPTION 1 (Recommended): Use the connected version, it has the following advantages

  • Remote control from your smartphone or any computer and tablet

  • A synchronized version on all the terminals, mobiles, tablets and screens of the mosque

  • Send messages and announcements on the screen from your smartphone or computer

  • You benefit from the latest updates automatically without any manipulation

Follow the steps below :

  1. Start the raspberry and connect a USB keyboard and mouse

  2. Minimize the Mawaqit window with the F11 key on your keyboard

  3. Connect it to the internet (Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable)

  4. Synchronize, let yourself be guided on the Mawaqit window

  5. Press F11 key to maximize the Mawaqit window

Note: At launch, the system checks if an internet connection is available, in this case it launches the online version, otherwise it switches to the offline version

OPTION 2: Use the offline version, just plug the raspberry on the screen, the software will launch itself.
Important : The Raspberry does not have an RTC clock (an electronic component with a battery) which allows keeping the time correctly set when it is off.
So it is advisable to equip the raspberry with RTC if you do not plane to connect it to the internet, this will avoid loss of system time in the event of a power failure. Just plug it in as illustrated below.
