steps


  1. Sign-up here
  2. Add the mosque on our account, have a proof of domiciliation of the mosque (like an electric bill, no need for homes and other types of installation)
  3. Download the pre-configured system image here You must be logged in to download the system image
  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 here https://etcher.io then install it on your computer
  6. Flash the mawaqit.gz system image on the micro sd card with Etcher




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

OPTION 1 (Recommanded): 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. Connect it to the internet (WIFI or Ethernet cable)
  3. Open the file online_site.txt present on the desktop and replace its content with the link generated in your account, example:
    https://mawaqit.net/en/mosquee-essunna-houilles
  4. Save and exit
  5. Launch Mawaqit from the desktop
  6. At launch, the raspberry check 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 and type the following command in LXTerminal
sudo date -s "2020-02-27 11:02:09" && sudo hwclock -w
