Ayna.com Announces Ramdan Competition on Future TV

Ayna.com, which means “where” in Arabic, is home to the first and most visited Arabic search engine serving the Arabic speaking people of the MENA region, is organizing its yearly competition throughout the holy month of Ramadan. This year, Ayna.com teamed up with Future Television to run a religious program on its international and local channels. The show, Ayat wa 3ibar, will be broadcasted daily right after the Maghrib Prayer Call at Saudi Time.

The show starts when the Sheikh demonstrates a recitation of a specific Quranic Verse. At the end of the show, a daily question will be asked about a geographical location for a certain religious site or mosque, and the viewers will be requested to geo-locate it on Ayna.com maps through going to http://maps.ayna.com in order to enter a draw and win prizes.

Once the location is found, users are required to enter and submit the information in the submission box by filling up their details. The locations could be determined on both, the Map and Satellite View.

Participants will have the chance to win valuable prices and gifts. Every week throughout the month of Ramadan, a draw will be held to announce the winner on Future Television.

The draws will take place on the following dates:

  • 8th of Ramadan, first draw
  • 15th of Ramadan, second draw
  • 22nd of Ramadan, third draw
  • 29th of Ramadan, last draw

The competition is open to everyone in the Arab World. Every viewer may enter the draw once per day and could participate daily to increase the chances of winning. Users may not share the answers with others.
