There are many mobile applications that are used in the daily lives of Muslims to fulfill their obligations and Islamic lifestyle. However, the user interface of most of these mobile applications has been found to have certain issues with elderly users, in other words, not elderly-friendly. The usability challenges that are faced by older adults when using regular applications include physical challenges, visual problems and issues related to their cognitive ability at their age. This study aims to derive the design guidelines from past studies focusing on addressing common physical and cognitive challenges for elderly people in using regular mobile applications to be implemented in the user interface design of an Islamic mobile application. Several existing Islamic mobile applications are analyzed before developing a prototype of an elderly-Muslim-friendly mobile application based on the design guidelines. Usability evaluation of this prototype is conducted to provide empirical findings on such design guidelines that can be implemented in designing an elderly-Muslim-friendly mobile application. The results affirmed the design guidelines that can be used in the development of Islamic mobile applications that cater for the elderly people. This study contributes in providing a better understanding of the design guidelines that can be implemented in such applications.
