"If you are curious to know why the project name has changed, it was because an inconsistency between it and Canonical's trademark policy regarding the names of distributions that use Ubuntu's base. "Sabily" means "my way" and comes from the verse 108 from Surat Yusuf: "This is my way; I invite unto Allah with sure knowledge, I and whosoever follows me..." – also Sabily's new slogan.

"Sabily 9.04 "Tayebah" is available in three versions: a small 935 MB DVD, the Full version containing extra multimedia and education packages and the Full version with offline access to Quran recitations. All these versions are complete with Live environments, so users can test them before touching existing partitions. An 184 MB CD is also available containing the packages needed to conveniently transform an Ubuntu 9.04 installation to Sabily."
