Google has launched a Ramadan companion site created to help Muslim users organize their fasts -- and feasts.

Launched in time with the start of Ramadan, when one billion Muslims begin a month-long fast that breaks daily at sundown, 'My Ramadan Companion' serves as a digital assistant and features everything from Iftar recipes (the evening meal when followers break their fast) as well as local sunrise and sunset times.

The leading prayer app also features local fasting times, the full Quran with recitations, and nearby Halal restaurants and mosques.

A mobile version of Shahiya -- the largest Arabic cooking website -- offers 16,000 recipes that can be used to whip up Iftar meals.
