"Everyone will find something for themselves on our digital calendar"
Kuveyt Türk’s CEO Ufuk Uyan, “Calendars that enable us to plan time correctly in religious, cultural, social, economic or administrative terms are an effective time management tool. Knowing the value of the moment and making good use of time makes our life more meaningful. Based on this understanding, we have been preparing the Kuveyt Türk Wall Calendar for many years and presenting it to our customers. In our traditional wall calendar, we present sections of the ideas and lives of many of our writers, thinkers, intellectuals and historical figures. We wanted to bring our traditional wall calendar to digital and present it to the use of large masses, with new information gained as we read, adding abundance to the present and reflecting our national and spiritual values. We can state that those who download and use our mobile application, which we call the Kuveyt Türk Digital Calendar, on their phones will have a different experience with the unique design of our digital calendar and original content. We are delighted to continue our calendar culture in digital as well as our traditional wall calendar. We aim to improve our digital calendar by adding new features in the upcoming period.”

Alaturka Time are included in a digital calendar for the first time
Kuveyt Türk Digital Calendar includes "mean time" as well as "alaturka time" that show azan and prayer times. Alaturka time is a local time measure used by our ancestors based on the beginning of the day with the evening prayer and ending with the afternoon prayer. Many notions used in worship are according to the Alaturka time and are reflected in our tradition as well. For example, after the evening call to prayer on Thursday, Friday starts. Therefore, the time period after the evening azan is called "Friday night / evening". Also holy night days start with the evening prayer and end with the afternoon prayer. With the Kuveyt Türk Digital Calendar, users can follow the azan and prayer times with the "alaturka time".
