The new application is supporting the secrecy of charity urged by the great Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be upon Him, as he said in Hadith that "Charity spent in secret extinguishes Allah's wrath". The Prophet (PBUH) also said when talking about seven people whom Allah will protect in His Shade on the Hereafter day when there is no shade except His Shade: (a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity) as the donor can use this application in his place of prayer, workplace, or house.
