Asslam-o-Alaikum (Peace be unto you)
We feel honoured in welcoming you to Islam Focus where you will find some fundamental informaiton about Islam. This is a humble beginning and I pray to Almighty Allah for giving me the strength and the ability to contribute towards creating a better understanding of Islam among both Muslims and non-Muslims - Ameen. We were born as Muslims and we feel that we have a duty for contributing towards propagating the noble message of Islam delivered through various prophets (may Allah Bless them All) and in particular our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him).
Inshallah, we intend to frequently update this website and hence you will find new information posted as and when this becomes available. Since this is just a beginning, various aspects of this website are still under development and we look forward to receving support from like-minded people willing to contribue in some way.
Islam is a way of life and, unfortunately, there are many Muslims who do not have sufficient knowledge and understanding of various aspects of Islam which means that many aspects of their day-to-day life is not informed and guided by the principles of Islam. Islam requires every Muslim to seek a minimum level of knowledge enabling them spending their daily lives according to the teachings of Islam. Moreover, current media reports point to the existence of extreme elements among Muslims which might propagate cynicism and hatred towards non-Muslims. Every soul and every individual is precious, respectable and important and we are aiming to propagate values of tolerance, mutual respect and love towards all human beings. Therefore, our vision is for Islam Focus to act as an information hub through which common Muslims can acquire sufficient knowledge and understanding of Islam. We hope that this will help propagate peace, love and tranquillity for all. With this in mind, we have created Knowlegde Corner where we will be posting important teachings from the holy book Quran and saying of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him). As a starting point, we have compiled a list of some supplications (duas) from the Holy Quran and hope that these will be of some benefit.
For non-Muslim, our vision is very simple. We believe Islam is a religion of peace and tranquillity and it has been revealed by Allah for the benefit of all humankind. With this in mind, we have created Learn About Islam section where we will be posting some key information about Islam and how one can become a Muslim if they wish to do so.
In addition, we aim to undertake some charitable work in the form of helping orphans, widows, the elderly and the poorest the most needy sections of the society in less developed countries and regions of the world. More information is provided under the section titled Our Projects (these are still in working-stage and need your help and support).
Islam Focus is totally run and managed by volunteers who use their spare time and monetary resources towards promoting the noble causes of Islam including Dawah and charitable work seeking rewards and ajar only from Allah. Islam Focus does not receive any state funding and as such is dependent on the generosity of its donors such as yourself in achieving our objectives.
The charity work at Islam Focus is performed via collecting donations from donors and spending 100% of their money on charitable projects such as the ones mentioned in the Our Projects section. We believe in making a real difference to the quality of life of poor people and unlike many others Islam Focus will not deduct any commission for any of its administrative work. The philosophy is very simple – all actions must be performed for seeking only the pleasure of Allah and no one other than Allah can provide us better reward for what we do in this world. Do not take me wrong as there may be a need to pay labour to any external parties (e.g., a poor labourer) for their contribution in the projects but the point is that volunteers at Islam Focus will not not charge for any of their services making sure that every single penny is spent in the cause of Allah.
If you wish to be a volunteer and are willing to contribute only for the sake of Allah (and not for any monetary considerations), then kindly send ua an email at email@example.com and we will Inshallah get in touch with you as soon as possible.
Moreover, if you like our approach to spreading a better understanding of Islam among the humanity, then let your friends and family members know of this website by clicking Email a Friend link which appears towards the end of this page.
In summary, Islam Focus is about a noble cause and is being run and managed by no one else but ordinary Muslims like myself aspiring to make a difference. Islam Focus is for everyone and its key mission includes creating a better understanding of Islam and helping the poor out manage their day to day life.
May Allah accept our efforts and give us the reward in the hereafter for my contribution in promoting the message of Islam- Ameen!
