Techopedia Explains Sabily

Although successive versions were released from 2007 to 2011, Sabily is now considered “dormant.” An end-of-life process for Sabily was done in 2011 when it was announced that no other updates or security features would be released.

Other features of Sabily include a Q’uran study tool and an Islamic calendar. More information on how users can take advantage of Sabily can be found on Sabily user forums online.
