I’m going to be working with some of the brothers who run QuranJam.com Insha Allah! I really enjoy QuranJammin’ and this is one project I really am looking forward to because it will complement every single aspect of Islamic life if successful. It’s going to be essentially marketing work so we’ll see how this goes and what I can learn and gain!
You may be asking, “Why is pursuing this goal worthwhile? There are 100 other potential projects out there. Why is this one worth my while?”
When people go in search of the truth they have a few prerequisites in mind, that may not be openly said–namely that ‘the Truth’–whatever it is–should apply to everything, no matter how minute, so universally and intimately that it becomes crystal clear and undeniable that it indeed is the Truth. Furthermore, that Truth must be One–it must all come together to a single spot but yet branch out and touch everything. Islam makes that clear and the Qur’an is one of its main backings…through the Qur’an we can extrapolate here and there, using Qur’an Jam, pointing out where we can in our meager capacity, that the Truth is indeed shining and lighting up places where people thought it impossible.
In essence we are creating Islamic knowledge–not just spouting out hadith after hadith or ayah after ayah or quoting shuyookh mechanically, (of which there is only so much of) but using the minds and hearts Allah gave us to unite (as we are the religion of Unity) everyday life with God. One man once said: “The world is my Scripture” and he was probably referring to those Signs (ayat) Allah has placed in the world…so for us if we combine the reflecting on those Ayat with that of the Qur’an…well then we have something new that will raise the eeman of the Believers, Insha Allah! It’s an active process of getting into the deen–not a stagnant one of simply hearing a duroos–and because of that it is retained better in memory.
Just as Muhammad SAAWS was the connection between people and Allah–the Qur’anic connection which has taken that place needs to be strengthened. We are showing the impact of the Qur’an on the everyday. And then from there–this new knowledge can be used wherever, in khutbahs, sermons, emails, Islamic lectures, Dawah videos, Dawah literature, simple conversation or even in giving one-to-one dawah to a non-Muslim. As long as that supply of knowledge grows (i.e. the QuranJams)…the eeman will have more and more fuel to go higher and higher to the level of Ihsaan, Insha Allah!
