Sabily is a free, open source operating system designed by and for Muslims.

Sabily is a free, open source operating system designed by and for Muslims. It is based on the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution which is a Free and Open Source (FOSS) operating system.

Sabily includes a set of packages that customizes Ubuntu. Ubuntu is easy to use for a novice user,with the most-used Office, Internet, Graphics and Video applications already installed. With Sabily, Muslim users have “out of the box” Islamic software and tools installed as well. Sabily includes Islamic software (prayer times tool, Quran study tool, Hijri calendar etc.) and has a custom design.

Sabily comes with out of the box educational software, codecs for the most used media formats and has better support for Arabic language.

Sabily is available as a Live DVD, which can be booted on the host computer without installation. Currently there are three versions existing:

    * Small version (935 MB): contains the main Sabily packages, including artwork and Islamic applications and Arabic support
    * Full version (1.4 GB): contains the same as the Small version plus multimedia, educational and miscellaneous packages (see the full list here)
    * Full version with recitations (2.8 GB): same as Full version plus Quran recitations provided by http://www.versebyversequran.com: Muhammad Siddeeq al-Minshawi, Huzify, Sa’ad al-Ghamadi and Mishary Rashed Alafasy. Note: this version is useful when not connected to the Internet (all Sabily versions provide online recitations)
